Wednesday Words

I'm doubling up on challenges for today's card - not something I do that often, but they just seemed to match particularly well. so this card is going into the photo challenge at Inkspirational and the theme challenge at Crazy for CAS.


Love all those ice lolly colours! Here's my card:

I started by watercolouring the coloured stripes using distress inks and then simply stamped the summery quotes and sunshine on top.  I matted it all onto a plain white card base and my CAS card was complete.

I've had these Technique Tuesday stamps by Ali Edwards seemingly forever and have used them a lot on scrapbook pages, but I think this may be their first appearance on a card. Love Ali's handwriting style!

Stamps: Technique Tuesday by Ali Edwards, Bring on the Sun & Summer Rocks
Inks: Ranger distress, cracked pistachio, wilted violet, mustard seed, picked raspberry, blueprint sketch, spiced marmalade

Huge thanks for visiting today, I always love to have your company.

And keep crafting!
