Learn To Pause by Alison

Hello Stampers. I've a little card to share with you for my second post of the month.


I don't know about you, but I'm loving the Crafter's Workshop Templates at the moment. I started the background for this card the other day. I'd spritzed a turquoise background for another card, then turned my template over, onto another piece of card, thus creating a reverse image. I then added some Crafty Notions Tangilicious accents through a circle template.

I inked the background with Vintage Photo Distress Ink, then stamped a script background, using the same ink. I distressed the edges with a Tonic Paper Distresser, then inked them with the Vintage Photo ink.

Next, I stamped competition winner Laura Liddell's fab Sneakers, onto my background. I stamped them again, onto white card, using Black Versafine ink, then clear embossed them. I inked them with Vintage Photo, then cut them out & glued them to my background.

I stamped the phrase from Tim Holtz's Just Thoughts plate, onto white card, cut the individual words out, inked them with Vintage Photo, then glued them in place. Finally, I added my artwork to a square kraft card blank.

Thanks for looking,
Alison xox

A really wonderful card, Alison. Love the colours - and I agree about their templates. Would make a great card for a teenager, a man...or anyone actually.
