Hi there everybody. I have been mulling over what I might do for three of the clean and simple challenges this week and eventually came up with this.
It combines Addicted to CAS has asked for blue, Casology which has given the word 'write', and Less is More is a lucky dip week using Sprays/Mists. I have a mask from That Special Touch called Splats which I used in the background combined with a spray which I made up using watercolour paint, and then when dry blended distress inks through the mask using Tumbled Glass, Peacock Feathers and Faded Jeans. I was a bit fussy about exactly where I wanted the splats so just cherry picked which bits I used from the stencil, and used a piece of Clarity stencil card to do it on.
I managed to find a free template for the small envelope and tag and after downloading these and cutting them out I transferred them to some snippets of good quality white paper and after sticking the envelope together I inked that and the tag with a little of the distress ink left on the blending foam to take the whiteness off and then stamped the sentiment on the tag using Memento Nautical Blue ink. I finished the tag with a bit of blue baker's twine.
Lastly before I finish I have a new follower called Gail whose Blog you will find here. She is on the HLS Design Team and does some fabulous work and I'm sure she would appreciate your visiting her.
Thank you for dropping by and I do so appreciate your interest.
I am also entering the following challenge:
Pixie's Crafty Workshop - where we use up our snippets. I used snippets of paper for the envelope and tag.
Simon Says Monday Challenge - Trio of Colours. I used three colours of blue distress ink.
