A very good morning to you all - if Mr Blogger is behaving himself today you will be reading this, if not - well, you won't!! This post was scheduled for 10.00am today, by which time I shall probably be eating ice cream, and singing "O Sole Mio"  (not both at the same time though - I never sing with my mouth full) - can you guess where I am peeps??!!!
This week at MAWTT the challenge theme is "Clean and Simple",  chosen by the lovely Hazel
(A card with clean lines, minimal elements, areas of white space, and few or no embellishments).
My DT card Recipe:-
Ink - Kaleidacolour Creole Spice, applied with a brayer onto a rectangle of white card. 4 holes punched down one edge.
The images were stamped with black Staz-on onto a Stampbord rectangle after brayering with Creole Spice. Some of the coloured ink was removed with a scratch pen to let the white surface show through. The stamps are by Leigh Hannan, available from Impression Obsession.
Stampbord edges inked with Gold Krylon, then layered onto black card and mounted.
Sentiment from Hero Arts.
There is a fabulous £10 gift voucher for this week's winner, from our lovely Sponsor - Crafty Emma.
 See you all soon ~
