You had me at ice cream!

I finally got to play along with the #thedailymarker30day challenge!

And here is the Whimsy Stamps - Ice Cream Penguin mounted on a card.

I was wondering how many of you have a dilemma when mounting Copic colouring on a white card base........... the card I use for Copics is a completely different shade of white and it didn't look right on the plain white card base.

So it gave me the perfect excuse to flick some Distress Oxide ink that co-ordinated with the colours used on the penguin.  I managed to get it on me, my craft mat, my table oh and even the card base....... hey, please don't judge, I was having fun!
A simple way to add a smidge of colour to white card.

Stitching with a zing!

Having had fun stitching this zingy cross stitch circle, I puzzled as to how I was going to turn it into a card!

Then, looking around my studio I saw the Altenew Deco Wonder stencil on a shelf.

A short time later I had a jazzy background of orange and yellow Distress Oxide inks to compliment the shades on the cross stitched circle.

I hope this has brightened your day!

I will be back soon with more of my crafting projects.

Until then
Happy Colouring
