Nice and easy this week.

Everyone has enjoyed making this card today, making different variations.
Come along on Sunday and have a go.

Make & Take Friday 22nd July

Here is this week's card, the background has been stamped using Versamark ink and embossed with clear powder. I have used a patterned paper at the left side and the coloured piece going across is a background that I have made using Distress Stains picking out the colours in the paper (yellow, Blue and red) Running them over white card and spraying with a Gold Mica Spray and dabbing with a baby wipe to blend them a little, the edge is punched using a Martha Stewart punch. Coloured using Lyra Aqua colours.
