Guest DT for Anya Ink


I've been dying to say something all week, but haven't been able to until now.  I have been asked to be a guess designer for the Anya Ink challenge this week.

The challenge this week was a doozy and I had to stratch my head to work out what I was going to do. We have to create a card with only one layer....that's right just the card base.

Here is my card.

I used my favourite cow stamp from the McSplendid set and stamped it onto the card.  I chose Kraft stock paper because it worked well with the stamp (less colouring).  I coloured the cow in with black copic and white gel pen.   To create the circle I punched out on a scrap piece of paper the circle and used that a template.  I then sponged whisper white ink around the image.  I used black maker and add dots to highlight the edge.  I then paper peirced the corners to add a bit of decoration.  I was going to put a sentiment but I thought it looked cute as it was.  What do you think?

Now go try this challenge.  It's hard than it looks.   You will find the challenge on Anya Ink along with the other wonderful cards for inspiration from the regular Design team.

 I would like to all thank you for the kinds words of support and your prayers from my Aunty.  She is improving each day (not dramatically) but it positive.  She is getting movement back in her face and she has some feeling in her arm however she still can move it.

Keep Safe
