Good morning all.
There's been a bit of a drop in temperature these last few days. All I can say is that at least it isn't raining!
Over at Cardz4Guyz, we have a brand new challenge for you.
Wasn't sure where to go with this, spring popped into my head along with Christmas but as it makes my daughter cringe when she sees Christmas cards on my blog so early in the year I daren't go there again so soon!
So here is my take on this week's challenge.
I know it's not the sort of card you make on a regular basis but as I have none in the stash I thought I would make a sympathy card.
The tree stamp is one I picked up at Port Sunlight last October from the Chocolate Baroque bargain bucket.
It reminds me of the oaks I can see from my bedroom window, solid and full of strength.
I stamped in Versamark then embossed with white. The coloured background panel was made using the acrylic block technique. You add marker to the block and then spritz with water and stamp, trying not to splash outside the required area! A bit of a wiggle and then remove and leave to dry, love the water look it gives. A Crafters Companion sentiment in London Fog Memento ink was stamped and the top panel trimmed with a rectangle die before mounting flat on the base card.
I'd like to join in over at -
