I also wanted to play along with the new AnnaBelle monthly challenge - Adding texture!
If I was just starting out with stamping I would start with ink pads and white cardstock, I think from these you can create so much! Both small pieces of card have been distressed with ink and then stamped with a background stamp from BBD7. I masked the small area off with what would have to be my second favourite punch after a corner rounder - this one from SU! This panel is raised with dimensional foam.
The first card came together so quickly I went ahead and did another one, this one a little more girlie :) Unfortunately after a beautiful morning the sky has clouded over so the images are a little dull sorry!
I don't have all the SU! colours from the Colour-Q challenge so I did have to substitute Pool Party for Soft Sky. The centre to my flowers is So Saffron and I masked a larger area first up and distressed, then masked a smaller circle and distressed again, so it is just the one colour :)
Thanks for stopping by today :) Enjoy the rest of your weekend!!
Hugs for now,
