Morning my crafting friends, hope today finds you all safe and well, have you had a good crafting weekend? I managed to make two small cards on Saturday but my time is limited at the moment.

IF ANYONE WOULD LIKE TO JOIN THE DESIGN TEAM ON LITTLE PATCH OF CRAFTY FRIENDS THERE IS A PLACE VACANT. JUST E-MAIL DENISE AT             you only have to do a card once a month, there are two teams and the challenges go out every fortnight, its always Anything Goes so not anything difficult and we have a load of fabulous sponsors.

This was one of the two I made...

I started of with a piece of White card and painted over the top with the Blue & Green Aquatints, I then sprayed water over the top and blotted dry, I was quite pleased with the result so did not wish to cover it all up. 

I decided just to stamp a couple of John Lockwood's design stamps so I stamped the grass at the bottom in two different shades of Green distress inks, Forest Moss & Crushed Olive, then using my versamark ink pad I stamped the square daisy chain and heat embossed with White embossing powder.

In the center of the Daisy Chain I added the sentiment using Forest Moss distress ink.

I matted this onto a plain White base card and there you have the finished card. Dimensions 4"X6".
