Only Cards at That's Crafty Challenge Blog

Hi Everyone
It's a busy That's Crafty day today, we have the start of our new Challenge fortnight  HERE with the theme
'Only Cards' 
and That's Crafty are appearing on Hochanda today with the launch of some fabulous new Autumn and Christmas MDF, Greyboard, Stamps, stencils & paints there are loads of new fabulous stuff. If you can't get to watch the Shows on Hochanda SKY channel 663 or Freeview 85 today you can watch them online as part of their catch up TV or you can find them on the That's Crafty website in the 'What's New' section. 
Anyway, back to our 'Only Cards' challenge

My card uses a Lost Coast Design stamp as my central image. My background is from a paint scraped masterboard I made. Onto a seperate piece of the same masterboard  I stamped her using the Stamping platform to allow me to paint out the flesh parts with Paperartsy blush paint and then stamp the detail back in, I then  cut her out.  I then added stencilling to the back first with the circles in black archival ink and then with white acrylic for the leaves which is a Dylusions stencil. I then out lined the white with a black fine liner pen. Sentiment is from one of Dylusions fabulous quote stamps, stamped onto white card and cut out to add to the card.

There are some fabulous card from my Team mates HERE to offer you loads of inspiration. Also don't forget if you join in with us you could be the winner of a £20 voucher to spend online at That's Crafty.
Hopefully we will see you over there and thanks for stopping by
