En Vacances!

Good morning ,

Just in case you hadn't seen all the excitement on fb, it is this week that Barbara and Dave are taking the Design Team to France, it is sooo exciting, we have all been making arrangements, packing craft stuff (We have enough with us to open a mega-store!!) remembering passports etc,

This will be my last blog until we get back.
This card started out as a quick and easy one, because I didn't have much time to get samples done this month, but I got carried away with the doodling and it took me ages!  Simple, but time-consuming - I am pleased with the result though!

I masked off the bottom of the card, then sponged through the 'tangle' stencil with several colours of ink.
Using a fine black pen, I traced round the whole thing.  I removed the stencil and my original intention was to leave it at that, but I decided to see what it would look like with a bit of doodling....
I matted it on to black and added the 'happy birthday' line stamp - I love these line words!

Hope you like it!
I am off to pack now,  look out France, the Clarity DT is on its way!!
Take care,
Janet xx -
