Just Playing with Ink

Hello fellow inkers!

I've had lots of guest designing stints this year which has been lovely, but it's also meant that I've had new stuff sitting in my stash that hasn't yet seen any ink. So last night was just spent playing around with a few new bits and pieces. 

First up is this very simple card, created for AAA Cards where the challenge is to use a stencil. I'm forever lamenting about my lack of stencil skills but I do love using them - the circle stencil was a new purchase from MFT, which means I can now chuck away all those bits of die cut acetate I'd been using previously! The stamp is Dandelion Wishes from Happy Little Stampers:

Yet again I'm popping it over to Time Out where the challenge is to use bright colours. Since it's the third card I've posted to that challenge, the DT may be forgiven for getting a bit bored with me....

The next card is for MFT's clean and simple birthday project challenge using Bubble Over with Joy and their Marble Background Stamp - another one that's been on my never-ending MFT wishlist for some time.  Can you tell there was a 40% off sale a couple of weeks ago?!  

Thanks for popping by today!
