Hope you all had a nice weekend. I certainly did, a couple of walks and some crafting time made for a perfect one. Even better I got some new stamps through the post this week, and what better time to try them out.
Here is my first one:
Newlyweds set designed by my friend Shirley, The Bees Knees by STAMPlorations. My inspiration came from tye following challenges:
CASology - date - wedding day
Less is More - one layer and new beginnings - married life
Crafty Calendar - what's new - new set and new beginnings
One Layer Simplicity - attractive opposites - Mr & Mrs, graphic and splatters, doodled and straight
CAS(e) this Sketch -
I first stamped and gold embossed my couple, then I drew my border, created a mask and masked off my couple and spritzed with Artiste Gold Spritzing ink (docrafts). Once dry, I removed my mask and stamped the Mr & Mrs sentiment. I love the gold spritzed background, it is subtle and effective. Hope you like it too.
My next card uses another set by Shirley, this time it's Houses
I would like to enter this card in the Allsorts 'New & Cute' and the Crafty Calendar 'What's New' challenges.
Better go off and do some cooking. :-)
Have a lovely week!

Just found out that my Newlyweds Card got an Honourable Mention at CASology. Yay!!!! Thanks, Melissa, for picking my card.
