A way with words

You may have noticed recently that I've got a bit obsessed with the Dylusions sets of word stamps. I was sent a set by the wonderful Christi from Art Without Anxiety and my collection is growing rapidly!

This is a very quick and easy one layer card that uses one of the sentiments in the original set she sent me. I stamped it directly  onto the card, then again on to sticky notes to mask the stamping off. Then I used Aged Mahogany DI to stamp the tape measure image and a couple of splodges, stamping the splodges a second time without reinking, and bringing the whole lot together with a light sponging of the ink. When the sticky noted are rem oved, the words stand out boldly from the inky background.


I think we've all had days when we felt like that!

I'm sharing this with
