There is beauty in simplicity

Hi Everyone…

Hope you are all doing well …

Seeing as the weather is so dreich today I went up to my shed and made a wee card after work

I created several brusho backgrounds on Tim Holtz water colour paper a few weeks back, and had a few leftover pieces on my desk.. so decided to make this wee card

leave 1

The card base is 4″ x 4″ with a black card layer followed by the brusho top layer

leave 4

the skeleton leave stamp is from a Paperartsy stamp set by Lin Brown Series 29 and this was stamped directly onto the paper using stazon purple ink

leave 2

The card was assembled and finished off with a Tim Holtz small talk sticker for the sentiment..

I have been busy this week working on my next design team project for colourcraft will be live on their blog on the 17th June at 10am.. i’m excited about it already πŸ™‚

As always, thanks for popping round, I will try and blog more soon, but if you fancy catching up with me on social media you can see me on Instagram where I post lots of pictures of the dogs, flowers, the fishery and every day life… link is in the side bar πŸ˜‰

Take care
