Inkspirational GD


Hello everyone, happy Saturday! I feel very honoured and happy to have been invited to be Guest Designer at Inkspirational and the theme this time is CAS.

I made my card by masking off a panel with low-tack masking tape, sponging on distress inks, stamped the poppies and sentiment in black Memento and coloured using distress inks and aqua brush. 

Why not pop over to the Inkspirational challenge blog to see all the fabulous DT inspiration and we hope you can join in!

Would also like to link to Time Out #7 (Summer with the optional twist of flowers),  Artful Times #57 (CAS) and Curtain Call (Something Simple).

Have a lovely weekend! x



Supplies
Pleasant Poppies stamp - Stampin' Up!
Sentiment stamp - PTI
Distress inks - Tim Holtz

wonderful sponging for the background Sue and such accurate colouring-no messing up there! And yet again and really wonderful sentiment. I am so pleased you are joining us for this challenge, we are very honoured x

Such a beautiful card . I love the inky-ness of it, the rich colours and quite arty style - then I love the way you have masked it off so that a card that might have been quite busy, becomes clean and simple. So skilled - it's gorgeous. Thank you so much , Sue, for being our fabulous guest designer at Inkspirational.
