Blended Backgrounds for Daring Cardmakers

This week, the challenge is Blended Backgrounds - right up my street, I love my distress inks! I came up with two cards, and couldn't decide which one to use, so here they both are.......

This first one uses the broad stripe card cover die by MFT, and some cute elephants, also by MFT (bought to make Molly her first birthday card which is coming up in November)


For the second one, I used a wave stencil to layer the colours into a random rainbow effect. The large  HAPPY is a die and stamp I bought at a craft fair in Paris when Kath and I went on our adventure there earlier this year


Be sure to pop over to Daring Cardmakers to see what the design team have come up with this week (a talented bunch, every week I am left shaking my head in awe and thinking 'now why didn't I think of that?......)

  4. What wonderfully colorful, bright and cheery cards. I don't think I could choose a favorite ... they are both fabulous. WOW ... Sweet little Molly is nearly a year old already? The time has passed much too quickly! How about an update on how she is doing? Is she walking yet? Does she have lots of teeth? (My own children were still toothless at a year.) Is she talking much? They sure grow fast, don't they?
