Continuing on the voyage

Hi everyone. A quickie from me as the deadline for Hels Sheridan's current Sunday Stamper challenge - My Guy fast approaches. Plus (as I've used some new dies) this is going into the latest Fashionable Stamping Challenge - Show us Something New and this month The Artistic Stamper Creative Team challenge is Makes for Men. So here goes...


I'm currently playing with the ideas that have come from Tim's June tag (and yes, mine's done and will be on view very soon). Plus I've got hold of two new sets of Spellbinders Page Maps Shapeabilities dies which have very quickly become my 'go to' sets for matting and layering.


Part of the reason for a lot of this experimentation is that Linda Coughlin has given all the individual Distress products an extra discount over at The Funkie Junkie Boutique so they are at a ridiculously low price for one week only. To celebrate I'm going to do an extra 'Friday Focus' post this coming Monday at Frilly and Funkie with an added twist to Tim's background method (his fantastic version is HERE).


What I love about Distress products is that they are great to use on their own but go off onto another level when mixed; paints and inks on top of stains is a combo truly made in heaven for the amount of dimension it gives to a plain piece of cardstock.


And then you can add reinkers to the mix for even more fun! It doesn't take too much in the way of extras to  complete a project. There are so many colours too, and I suspect it will take me a long time to try out every combination of colours
(it'll be fun to do though!)


So as a busy birthday time in the family and with friends is now upon me it is maybe just as well I'm having a ball coming up with lots of cards. Please check out The Funkie Junkie Boutique's current discounts so you can add to your Distress collection at a bargain price. Thanks for dropping by. Hopefully I'll see you again very soon, and in the meantime take care of yourselves. Hugs, Jenny x

  30. Jenny...this card is so pretty. I love the splattered background. Those layers of papers and die cuts look very cool. I love that "VOYAGE" stamp and how you've colored it. That looks really neat and really brings all of the other papers together. The Happy Birthday sentiment stamped in brown also looks really good. Thanks for the nice comment you left on my blog as well. You're so sweet! <3 Candy
