HB2U

Hi there!

I really hope wherever you are, you are doing fine and having a good time! Whether you are enjoying Summer, or surviving Winter !

Here in the UAE we are just trying to get through Summer. It really is extremely hot out there, high humidity, and wind kicking up lots of sand and dust ;( but hey, it has it's advantages as well... more indoor time means more crafting time!

I have a card to share inspired by 2 challenges:

Less is more ~ one layer masculine card

Inkspirational challenges ~ grunge




I never thought I will take the 'grunge' route, because I prefer the opposite 'polished' look !

But going through my background stamps I discovered this stamp, and thought, maybe when applied in small amounts, I can add a grunge element and still keep it CAS!

The diamond shapes were sponged with TH distress inks (Faded jeans & Peeled paint)... using the leftovers from this card as stencil.
The sentiment was sponged with Versafine onyx black using a stencil cut with my Silhouette.

I am slowly but surely starting to enjoy making one layer cards... can you believe that?!

Thanks for visiting me today!

Daai lyk vir my na 'n GI stamp, vrou???!!! Jou grunge lyk regtig wonderlik en die blou en groen wat jy gebruik het is so lekker lewendig en maak 'n pragtige kleur waat dit mekaar oorvleuel!!!! En ja, ek begin dit ook nogal geniet om bietjie na OL's te weeg - nogal 'n lekker uitdaging ne!!! Hou van die lekker manlike font wat jy vir jou sentiment gekies het!!! Joe, ek hou regtig baie van die een, vrou!!!!
Groete
