Fantasy Stampers Challenge 14 - CAS

Good morning everyone,

It's time for our next challenge over at my challenge blog - 

Just a reminder that we are still looking for Guest Designers for our new midway motivation posts, so if you are interested - why not pop over to the main blog HERE and check out the details.

Now, onto the details of the new challenge which launches today. The theme for the next two weeks will be 

Can't wait to see all those clean looking projects, so away with the embellishments now! Lol.

Here's what I made for my DT inspiration ...

This piece is 6x6" square - I cut out an oval aperture from a piece of copier paper and secured it over my white card. I used a Clarity brickwork stencil and brushed distress inks through it with my ink dusters, using 'Peacock Feathers', Picked Raspberry' and 'Chipped Sapphire' inks. The tree silhouette stamp is from the Stampin Up set 'Serene Silhouettes' and is stamped in black archival ink. The wording is from one of Clarity's word chains and is also stamped in black archival ink. I mounted the whole piece on a co-ordinating cardstock and job done. I am beginning to love this clean and simple look - great for if you need a quick card.

I hope you can come along and join us this time, and watch out for our new 'Winner's Post' which will now be published on the Sunday following each new challenge.
Hugz, Jan xx
