In the Wild at MAWTT

Good morning my lovely crafty friends.
Super quick post from me today as my squidgilicious Grandson Oliver is here to play - I really must remember to schedule my posts in the evening but by the time I have finished tea and had a little bloggy catch up all I want to do is watch a bit of telly and then go to bed!!!!

Anyway I'm here to share my DT make for the new challenge over at


and this week our lovely Hazel L has picked the theme


I thought that would be the perfect excuse to use the gorgeous freebie stamps with last month's Quick Cards Made Easy - aren't they just fabulous?

So I created an inky background using some torn paper and Distress Inks and then stamped the images using Black Aidrondack ink. A mat and layered stamped sentiment and a few black enamel dots to finish it off.

Please pop over to the main challenge blog for full details of the theme and to see the gorgeous inspiration from my DT buddies.

Challenges I would like to enter:


Thanks for calling by today.
Catch you all later this evening.

What a stunning card Debs, this is a beautiful finished piece. I'd love to know your technique for getting such richly inked backgrounds. The added texture to the fireflies is great. x Jessie

It's sounds so simple Debs when you just say ink, mask and stamp...but I bet it's not! But what it is is lovely! Jx

These stamps are lovely - I got them too but haven't had time to play with them yet. Plus they are not my normal style so I am a little nervous of them!

No such problems for you as your card is stunning, absolutely beautiful colours and design :-)
