She believed she could.................

A quick post this morning before I start preparing for a house full today for a roast beef sunday lunch, catching up with friends I haven't seen for a while.
I have still been playing with stencils, inking them up with distress ink, misting them with water and them using them as a stamp.
the stencil I have used this time is Mini Four Faces - Balzer Designs by TCW
Distress inks used were victorian velvet, spun sugar and antique linen. Once I'd transfered the inked stencil to card I thenmasked off the squares and added victorian velvet distress paint through Tim's dot fade stencil. I then used the following stamps:-
handwriting - Dina Wakley textures
Barbed wire circle - Wired by Stampendous
Sentiment -Dina Wakley Scribbly Women.
I carried a little of the design onto the Kraft card blank.
This card fits in with the current challenge at Allsorts Challenge Blog which is create a one layer card so I am popping it into that challenge.
Thanks for visiting and I hope you all have a lovely Sunday.
