Happy Friyay!

I created today’s card using an older stamp from Hero Arts plus a couple of stamps from different Altenew sets. As I wanted the leaf to bend outwards at either side of the rosebud image, I had to bend the leaf a little on my acrylic block. Sometimes stamps spring back quickly when I try to do this, but it worked out fine with this!

I coloured the images using some distress ink and also my Twinkling H2Os – which I also used for the smooshed background. It shimmered so much, it was quite a shame to cover it up! I used an older Avery Elle die to cut out the images.

I’m entering this card into a number of challenges:

Seven Hills Crafts Monthly challenge (I chose the middle colour scheme), Casology (cue word = bud) and CAS Colours and Sketches.

Thanks for stopping by!



  1. Love that you bent your stamp to give some extra interest to the leaves. Hope that they straightened out afterwards. Thanks for joining us on this week’s CC&S challenge.


  2. Ink smooshing is one of my favorite techniques and anything shimmery makes me happy 🙂 Just like your card. Thanks for sharing at CASology this week!
