Playing with some challenges

Today I’ve had a chance to play along with some of my favourite challenges.

First up is a card for:

I used a stencil from Studio Light (for STB) that I placed in the bottom left corner (I moved the sketch around a bit). I then sponged Catherine Pooler Design inks in Be Mine, Bellini, Aquatini and Lime Rickey (following the colours in the JAI photo). I got a little bit of overlay between colours but I’m okay with that. The sentiment is from Hero Arts ‘Snarky Mix & Match Messages’.

Next up is a card for:

I created an alcohol ink panel that I stamped the ‘happy’ sentiment from CAS-ual Fridays ‘Shenanigans’ stamp set with Alcohol Lift Ink. I then stamped ‘birthday’ from the Altenew ‘Birthday Greetings’ stamp set.

Well that’s it for today, thanks for stopping by for a look. Enjoy your weekend.
