It's all about the squares!

Wow where did that fortnight go? I can't believe it's time for another challenge over at Stampotique, but it is, and this time we want to see squares - at least three of them! So as it's a nice easy one (most of your guys who mat and layer automatically have three or more squares anyway) I really do hope that you'll join us. Remember you don't need to use a Stampotique product to enter and you could be in with a chance of winning a lovely voucher to spend on new stash!

I'm afraid my card is really quick and easy one (I promise I have got more creative stuff in the pipeline to show you soon) which is for my friend's birthday which falls on Halloween.


The card is made from a regular card blank which has been matted with black paper and then white card. To create my third square which is inked, I simply made a mask from post it notes prior to inking with Distress Inks. The moon has been water bleached before over stamping with the fantastic image Owl Tree by Kira Nichols. To finish I added a rub on sentiment.


Thanks for stopping by today.

  4. Fab colours used in the background Claire. That is an interesting technique, water bleaching the moon shape. Interestingly enough, Stik brand have now made full sheets (A4) for masking bigger images than post it notes, could come in useful.. Great card, those owls are very spooooky! x

  13. Right, so... I have no clue how you masked that with a post-it to get the middle (my dopey brain is thinking wouldn't the ink be round the edge instead of the middle?) I have no clue what water bleaching is... but I do know this card is just gorgeous. That background sky is just perfick. Love it!
