Artygirlz challenge #28

Julie & Crissi have got another super challenge over at Artygirlz this week – ‘Triangles’! I have made a most peculiar (for me), card for this one and I’ve used my own handcarved stamp on the ‘hidden’ tag!! Woohoo – I’m addicted!!


Here’s the tag…


I know you can’t see the word very well because the background is so vibrant (acrylic paint scraped background!) and I used Brilliance copper ink, clear-embossed. Here’s a pic of the stamps I carved yesterday and today…


Didn’t they turn out great?!! I have to go to GPP Street Team and add my link again to Crusade #18! For April, we are making our own stencils… can’t wait. 😉

I just thought you might like to see my early-morning visitor:


Our garden backs onto fields and sometimes the cows wander over and graze the bank!! My cat is black and the first time I saw this cow’s face in the dip, I thought the cat was getting too fat… then the cow moved and I realised what it was!!  Never a dull moment, eh?! 😉
