Wednesday Words

Hi and welcome to my blog at the beginning of a brand new month. July sees the second birthday of my tentative entry into the world of blogging. I never imagined I'd make it this far and I was so unsure about it all back then. Well I think I'm really settled into it now and really enjoy connecting with all you positive crafty folk. Thanks to everyone who has inspired me and left such lovely confidence boosting comments. I love you all!

So on to today's share. There's such a super CAS sketch at Less is More this week I just had to play along. And Inkspirational has a word prompt - WILD - so that got me thinking!     

So here's my card:

I kept everything very clean and true to the sketch as I love its simplicity. I decided to pare down the colours for this card too and choose only to highlight the poppies with colour. This is one of my all time favourite stamps from inkylicious. And poppies are wild flowers, so that's my wild element.

Stamps: Inkylicious, Poppy Lea & Twinchie sentiment
Ink: Memento, tuxedo black
Promarker: Poppy

Thanks so much for looking at my blog today, I do appreciate you spending some of your time here. 

And keep crafting!
