As part of my plans to spend less in 2013 I want to spend more time with my inks and sprays, after all I've invested enough in them over the years. I had some 'play' time yesterday and decide to work with the colours for this week's Daring Card Makers Challenge. Check them out, if you haven't already, I found them irresistible! Here's my card.
In this month's Craft Stamper there's an article by Paula Whittaker called 'A Fine Romance' and that was the look I was going for on my card, but not using the same techniques. Now when I said spend less, I am not on a total new stash ban. That would be like starting a diet that didn't allow you to eat chocolate, impossible and down right insane! When I do spend it will be on bargains or small amounts of the latest must haves to cleverly (hopefully!) intersperse with my existing supplies. For example this stamp set which I knew I would use and at £2.50, I new I could afford.
The Distress Ink colours are Broken China and Antique Linen, but my applicator tool was already contaminated with Gathered Twigs, so it's blended to a darker colour in places.
The first of my new Guest DT projects tomorrow and 2/3rds of the children back to school, decorations still up in case you were wondering!!
