My Time to Craft GDT

A little while ago I was asked by the lovely Shell if I would be Guest Designer at My Time to Craft for April. It took less than a nano-second to say 'yes'! I am incredibly thrilled and honoured to be asked - thank you so much, Shell!

Here's my first card. The Challenge is for a CAS card, one layer, no embellishments. Eek! I'm only just getting to grips with CAS, let alone one-layer cards!! But I have this lovely, simple stamp, 'a touch' by Penny Black, which came from Sir Stampalot which I thought would look ok.

I stamped it with Stazon and coloured with watercolour pencils (borrowed from my daughter!) and used a waterbrush to blend, and I'm quite pleased with how it turned out. The sentiment is also Penny Black. The card blank isn't distressed round the edges, that's just a shadow, thanks to my naff photography skillz!

The simplest cards, I find, sometimes take longest, because they require a lot of thought and planning, at least that's what happens to me! But that's what a Challenge is all about, isn't it?!

Do go and see what the DT has done at My Time to Craft and then have a go yourselves!

All the deets for the Challenge are on the blog - I'm scheduling this on Thursday night (with the footy on the tv - come on, you Spurs!) because when you read this I will be in Shropshire, visiting my gorgeous granddaughter! Oh, and the rest of the family will be there too lol!!

I hope you're all having a lovely weekend! Thanks for looking!

love Mags B x
