I have been trying to find time all week to use retro-sketches #40 - I love the linear, graphic design and really wanted to play with it.
I had a number of blue snowflakes hanging around my desk - they are leftover from another project I can't show you until next week, but when I saw the Colour Q Challenge #166 palette, I was happy to use them up.
The Simon Says Stamp challenge is to use snowflakes, so I am linking up there as well.
Finally, I saw the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge this morning to feature a knot.
CFC81: Create a Clean And Simple project that features a knot or knots.
I just have to point out that this is the first time I have successfully masked and inked 2 colors with a wood block stamp (yes, I know a few out there just gasped hearing I actually own a few wood block stamps knowing about my aversion to them LOL).
The card is pretty simple with a couple of sizes of Martha Stewart punches, a Penny Black stamp, Color Box Blue Lagoon Chalk Ink, Memento Nautical Blue ink, Fishtail Flag Die-namic, Really Reasonable Ribbon blue Baker's Twine, and a turquoise jingle bell rounding out the supplies.
Thanks for stopping by,
