Just words

Over at Less is More the  Recipe this week is Mostly Words. I had just the stamp to make up a very quick card (it’s been a busy week!)


Materials used:
Anita’s monkey hugs stamp
Penny Black A hug is . . . stamp
Stamps Away Patchwork Template
Distress inks: antique linen and iced spruce
Spectrum Noir pens and pencils
Whispers brown pen
Memento Rich Cocoa ink pad

Using the template and distress inks I stencilled in a background on the front of an A5 white card blank. With the memento ink I stamped the A hug is . . . on top of the stencilled panel. I used the brown pen to ink up one monkey from the Monkey hugs stamp and stamped it above the sentiment. I used the Spectrum Noir pens and crayons to colour in the monkey.

A really quick card this time because of lack of time, next week is starting to look busy too!

Thanks for popping in. Take care.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

About Pippa

I started crafting at an early age though not always successfully, my pillowcase tennis dress has, thankfully, disappeared into history. Funnily sewing is not something I enjoy! My favourite crafty activity has to be card making, especially stamping which I have been doing for over 20 years and am still a beginner, there is always something new to learn. I also enjoy knitting and crochet. I am not an artist, cannot even draw a straight line with a ruler, but I love colouring in, which is why stamping appeals so much. I am married, have recently retired from being a part time HLTA at a local village primary school, have two grown up daughters, both married and a mad cat called Finnegan. That, in a nutshell, is me.

    Hi Pippa, Happy Sunday. Hope you have a chance to look at the tutorial, as it’s very easy to follow the instructions, and it makes a gorgeous background. I’ve done marbling with other alcohol inks, but using the markers was a different twist for me. It’s probably been around for a long time (like the shaving cream stuff…but I’d never heard of it!). I’m having fun with the backgrounds. Some work, some don’t for me. Hugs
