You are my world

That's what it says on this image from the Kanban Gentleman's Journal kit which has been distressed with vintage photo ink, as has the torn edges of the piece across the bottom. This piece was originally part of a folder which has been recycled to use on the card.

The edges of the main Kanban compass card have been distressed with tea dye with a hint of vintage photo. The compass card was another offcut, so this is for Pixie's crafty snippets 33, also Hiding in my craft room 58: super scraps Saturday and Squiggle stamps: stash attack


This is also for:

Dilly bean: worn torn and distressed
Die cuttin divas 78: take flight (the die cut is from a Kanban kit)
Sugar creek hollow 24: vintage travel
Charisma cardz 32: monochrome
Clear it out: one for the boys - 2 or more patterned papers
Bearly mine 48: fly fly away
Creative Belli 150: winged things (the Gentleman's Journal kit has been neglected)

My own card recycled

I made this card a couple of weeks ago, but I didn't feel entirely happy about the sea - I liked the effect I got with the Radiant rains, but I wasn't sure about the way I'd cut the waves (think I made a better job when I made this card).

So I decided to take the 'sea' off the replace it with some torn pebbly paper (I had a snippet of this left from another beach card).


This is for:

PaperPlay 33: upcycle/recycle
Craft punked 32: beside the sea
Alphabet: N for nautical
Incy wincy: beach days
PanPastel UK 31: create a scene
Charisma cardz 32: monochrome

Tanda teaser 200: CAS

Building sandcastles

For this card I used an offcut of DCWV summer paper along with a snippet of torn paper across the bottom. The main image and the strip across the top with beachballs, buckets and spades and sandcastles were taken from Publisher clipart. I used a couple of snippets of sticky ribbon top and bottom of the strip across the top of the card.

This is another card for Pixie's crafty snippets 33, also Hiding in my craft room 58: super scraps Saturday, Squiggle stamps: stash attack and Waste not Wednesdays 28. And it's also for Just us girls 149: use up those ribbon scraps.

Krafty laneway

For this card I've used a kraft card blank on to which I've stamped a new darkroom door photo stamp called 'laneway', inked with memento rich cocoa and coloured with colouring pencils.

The sentiment is from a Personal Impressions set.
