Create

Welcome to the weekend.  It is a dreary, rainy day here so it is a good time to be inspired by the challenge going on at Splitcoast and the Surya Home Decor site.  Saw this rug and started stamping:

 
I began by using my Tim Holtz round ink applicators and just twisted them onto my card front using Distress and Memento ink to create the circles.  I then stamped some textures over the circles using a few stamps from Kaiser.  To add a punch of colour, I dipped a paper tube, marker lid and the paint cap into black ink and added the circles to complete my card.  
When that was all dry, I cut and mounted my piece on an angle for interest.  Love the sentiment from Technique Tuesday.


I am adding my card to these challenges:

Simon Says- CREATE YOUR OWN BACKGROUND

Addicted to Stamps- MAKE YOUR MARK

Sister Act- ANYTHING GOES


 Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.  Have a great weekend.

Supplies:  stamps- Technique Tuesday, Kaiser/ Tim Holtz round applicators/ Bl. paint/ Distress ink/ Memento ink
