I don’t often venture outside my comfort zone, partly through fear! but mainly because of time. I would love to spend more time at my craft desk just playing, but when I don’t have too much time to spare I need to see a finished card at the end! However I knew that I had the perfect stamp for the theme of ‘Sihouettes’ at Joanna Sheen, but I also knew I had no suitable papers for what I had in mind. So I made some time (stayed up later!) and had a play with my Tim Holtz distress ink pads & a water spritzer and this is the result. The ‘frame’ was made using a Martha Stewart Punch Around The Page corner punch after I saw a You Tube video. I was going to snip off all the triangle bits, but decided that I quite liked them.
