Hello everyone.
Time for another challenge at Daring Cardmakers.
This week its Kathy's turn to host and its all about trying something new.
So this could be a new technique, a new fold or something else that you have never done before.
For this challenge I wanted to try and get inky again so I had ago at making my own background.

To make my card I inked up an acrylic blocked with a couple of colours.  I then sprayed it with water and used the block as my stamp.

I waited for the ink to dry and added the black image, a few sequins and the twine.
I then went on to stamp a few fire flies and the greeting.
I think it turned out great for my first attempt and kind of looks like a sunset.
The stamp set I used is called Jar Of Love from Stampin up.
Don't forget to stop by the design team blogs for more inspiration and we can't wait to see what you create.


  1. Inking a block is great fun as you're never quite sure exactly what you're going to get! This looks lovely Dawn and the sequins are a perfect embellishment.
