Blue and Green should never be seen...

Ha! I laugh in the face of blue and green not being seen, as this is one of my favourite colour combos...

Morning Bods :)


You may have noticed I've been trying out some Inky stuff recently. Mainly because I've been having a bit of a crisis of confidence about my colouring, but let's not go there as I'm just beginning to bury that one. (I'd like to thank you all for your sweet comments about my colouring btw... thank you, it's so kind and means so much. But whooooaaa! Let's pull it back in!) But also because that minx, Kitty over at My Mum's Craft Shop has started stocking a whole load of Inky, Stampy, Stencily Stuff. Naturally, someone needs to try these things out.

I'm happy to report, getting messy is a lot of fun, and you can lose yourself dipping, spraying, splatting, drying, layering, sanding, stamping, stencilling...

Stuff Wot I Used
Inks: Inkylicious Sprinkys; Aegean Sea and Bamboo
Stamps: Inkylicious Tiny Script, Swiss Dot and Dandelion Wishes
Stencil: Dylusions Chequered Dots
All from My Mum's Craft Shop

haha! I'm so glad you visited me the day I posted a card! But it's a bit intimidating since you make such awesome, beautiful cards :)
But I will be making cards at least once a month for DCWV now. That's MY crisis of confidence right now- my card making skills.
Practice makes perfect...or at least better right?
I don't know why you would ever question your coloring skills! Your coloring is BEAUTIFUL in every single card here. Silly!

Shelby said...

This turned out pretty cool! The color combo is awesome and I love the layering of the inks.

With your new bunch of skills listed I'm wondering what you'd be like with a bunch of screws & some 2x4 wood lengths. Need a potting shed erected!

Love the blue and green colors scheme, one of my fav's too and the dandelion stamp is very pretty but I just can't do the "inky, messy, splatter" thing. Just isn't in me. Thank heavens you do it well!
