Tuesday Talk

Today I'm playing along with two of my favourite challenges - Less is More and Happy Little Stampers CAS.

Here's my card:

I started by masking off a strip and then applied inks using my Inkylicious dusters. They're totally fabulous and give such a smooth blend, don't know what I'd do without them. In fact the Inkylicious stand at Craft Shows is one I always love to spend time at watching their wonderful demos and always, always spend far more there than I really should!

The birds on a wire is one of their stamps that just leapt into my basket as this design is quite a favourite of mine and I have - courtesy of my shop manager son's equally persuasive selling style - a few t-shirts with a similar design.

Stamps: Inkylicious, Birds on a Wire Silhouette; Uniko, Simply Said Blocks
Inks: Ranger distress, mermaid lagoon, cracked pistachio, blueprint sketch; Memento, tuxedo black

It's been wonderful having you drop by my blog today, thanks a million.  And keep crafting!
