Splat!

It's one of those  miserable murky days here today so I decided to have a lazy one.

I had a nice lie in and shortly we're off to the pub for our regular Tuesday lunch date with friend.

My heater is on so this afternoon the plan is to spend several hours crafting in my snuggly cabin watching the birds feeding  ... what more could a woman want.

Late last year I needed some quick cards to fill up my charity box so I made a selection of toppers like this one.

Just some distress inks rubbed through holes I punched on a scrap of card then overstamped with a selection of stamps using black Archival ink,  I punched the corners and mounted onto black card then stuck them onto white A6 cards - finished!

I'm joining in at That's Crafty challenge - Round and Round

Maybe quick but very bright and eyecatching. Great idea.

That inking with the over stamped splats is so effective - love the idea. A good way to spend a miserable day I'd say - I've been doing similar to you but without going out to lunch.

This is a fun way to make a quick and standing out card! Like the splashes!

This design would work well for batch baking several cards for your charity box. I can see why you picked it.

Great card, Barb.

Pat said...

Your circles work beautiful Barb and I love the splats and splatters stamped on top and the mat with the punched corners is so pretty too. x

Donna said...

Now this is so effective... and I love it.
Can I pick your brains re: the black archival ink?
How does it compare to black Stazon? Should I have some?
Thanks in advance...
From Mrs Clueless when it comes to stamping! x
