My Favourite Place !



Here is a clean and simple card featuring stamps by Alice Palace via Crafty Individuals. This fits the March Challenge from the Crafty Individuals Blog whose title this month is 'The Animal World' and also the Less Is More Challenge for this week (215) which has to be one layer and feature 'Animals'





I started with a 5 x 5 inch white card blank and the stamp of the geese which I used to make a mask.  I then stamped the geese in Memento black ink and masked off before overstamping with a swirl background in Memento tangelo ink.




The card also fits the bill for the AAA Cards Blog challenge too !

I used an orange and grey alcohol ink marker to colour in parts of the geese as shown and finished with the words stamped in Versafine black.
