The Alphabet Challenge – G is for Giggle

Hello once again. The Alphabet Challenge has started a new challenge, having reached the letter ‘G’, Melanie has chosen the theme of ‘Giggle’. Here is my card:

The sentiment is from an old set from Indigo Blu – a UK based company – and one which I believe suits me – from what people say…… I am quite blunt, I choose to call myself being clear, and precise – but sometimes words just come out my mouth when I only think I’ve thought them….anyone else do that?

I began by stamping the sentiment onto a piece of patterned paper, then distressed the edges, and added some ink blending to tone the white core down.

I then matted onto another piece of patterned paper – distressed and inked – at a jaunty angle, and placed those two layers onto yet another piece of patterned, distressed, and inked paper.

I also added some pearl swirls from my stash – onto which I inked again to tone down the ‘pearlness’ of them, and added another smaller sentiment – and – you guessed it – inked the edges too.

I was going a more vintage look with this card, which I think I achieved.

I hope you come and join us as I’m looking forward to having a giggle looking through our gallery. xx

I shall be entering the following challenges:

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge – anything goes

TTCRD – anything goes

The Sisterhood Of Crafters – add layers
