Blue and Green...Paper Artsy

lol - I sound like a bad Bingo caller there, but thats what the title Blue and Green reminded me of when I noticed that Created By Hand's theme was, yes, you guessed it, Blue and Green.

A little while ago I put a series of work together for a trade show using that colourway and so far have only blogged a one or two pieces, so here are a few more.

All using Paper Artsy stamps.

First of all, here's a photo of the decorative part of the intro card we had to make to help introduce ourselves (my head on a Squiggly Ink butterfly lol).



Then a rare sight ...a spot of scrapbooking ...lol...yeah I know, moving on swiftly, not my strongest area, but a requirement for the display board... lol (great photo of my youngest lad though :0) )










An atc mounted onto an acetate tag with a bit of a twist...the key is out of shot, sorry about that..



And a card with a few different textures...



This weeks theme for Crazy Amigos is Simplicity....does this qualify? This is about as simple as my cardmaking will ever get, so it fits the catagory for me :0)





Hope you liked the variation on the blue and green theme...all using Paper Artsy Squiggly Ink stamp range.
