It's Saturday morning and I'm so glad it's the weekend even if my lovely Hubby is working all weekend, But I can't complain at him as he has just bought tickets for us to go and see Simply Red in December, I love their music and can't wait. He never treats me to things like this so it's a lovely thing for him to do and he's coming with me to see them even if it's not his kind of music, he's even throwing in a meal too. He will buy me anything I want and never says no but he just has no imagination at all, so it's not that he's bad but just doesn't real give things much thought. He leaves all that to me LOL!
So It's time for a new challenge today at Allsorts. This week is our lovely Jo's turn to host and she would like to see 'Use A Stamp', (no digi's), a perfect opportunity to make a Father's Day card.
Here is what I did, I used a LOTV stamp, and decided to go a bit grungy using distress inks and embossing powders. The backing paper I did by over stamping quite a plain backing paper I wouldn't really use, with pocket watches and script and then distressing the edges, I really liked the finished result and seem to be doing this more to use up those papers I would normally cast aside.
Don't forget to head over to Allsorts for all the details of this challenge, and to check out all the fabulous inspiration from my very talented team mates.
Here is the prize on offer:-
Stamps - LOTV Stamp D Grunge Tickets, LOTV Set 57 Vintage Backgrounds Scripts, LOTV Stamp E Words For Tickets, Papermania Chronology,
Papers - LOTV Beach Bliss,
Colouring Mediums - Spectrum Noirs, Distress Inks,
Tools - Grand Calibur, Spellbinder dies, Heat tool, Embossing Powder,
