Fantasy Stampers...

Cute Christmas

Loved this challenge!
And this stamp...

Me to you are fabulous stamps to work with and even though the main colour is grey you can still add depth and texture to your card...

I have used my pro markers to colour
Always go back to them! 

What do you always go to keep on using??

I have used Stampin up brads but cut the back off to stick them down and punched hearts out too

The sentiment is me to you 

Thank you for taking the time to visit
Happy Crafting

#14 Clean and Simple


Today I am sharing with you the card that I have created for the

Fantasy Stampers Challenge this time


I have to be honest I really struggled with this! It is not something that I normally do and even though I love the concept it never looks right! I decided to go monochrome as I found I was also struggling with colour! LOL

So for my card I have used a lack card blank with a white layered panel and I have have then added another black panel to the middle
I have stamped the flower and the sentiment in gold pigment ink and inked the edges of the panels
I have then added them to the black panel

I hope you like my card and please join us in the challenge this time
I love this challenge because we only used stamped images - makes us go back to getting inky again!

Have a lovely weekend
