Sweet and Simple

...A simple 10 minute make card today...using a sweet Paperbag Studios stamp that has been lurking in my stash for yonks and not yet used!




I painted her in with Distress Inks and stamped a Stampington grid stamp onto more cardstock using two colours and a spritz of water to make it smudgey...I stamped it again and cut out a few of the squares and popped 3D foam behind them to raise them up. The little sentiment is from an Innovative Stamp Creations sheet.




Short and sweet today...am off back to the sofa to put my feet up...my poor old back is paining me again :O( Hopefully with a bit of a rest I will be able to get inky and messy again tomorrow...am missing my craft room LOL Thanks for looking....

This is a lovely card. Great image. I can't believe it only took ten minutes. That sort of thing only happens to me once in a blue moon. Talking of which, ping, an idea..... I haven't done much on my moon theme for a while. I will have to play catch up!

I agree with everyone else, it's lovely. Hope your back gets better soon. I'm glad it's not just me that buys stamps and then doesn't use them for yonks! Get back crafting soon, we love your work.

10 minutes - 10 MINUTES - that is amazing - don't know who you managed it - I couldn't make a card that good in a week.

Hope that you back eases after resting - but I totally agree - getting lost in crafting is a real tonic
