Allsorts Week 286 - No background papers

Hi All

This week we have been challenged to use no background papers.

I have used some hobby art stamps as was feeling inspired after my last workshop

Ive used some of the stamoos to make a background panel and over inked with pine needles distress ink.  Theres wink of stella in abundance on this to make it sparkle but i dont think you can see it too well on the photo (very happy with the non photo version)

We are sponsored by

GDT Penny Black and More

Hi All

I am pleased to be GDT at our sister challenge this month for the theme anything goes

I have used a very cute penny black image for my card, some compulsory purple and my favourite die of the moment!  I also added a few peel offs which i think look quite good - i dont use them much any more and it seems a waste:o)
