Create & Take

This weeks Create & Take idea comes from the Hero Art Catalogue using the Cling Antiques Writing Stamp. I have used watercolour pencils on one of the cards & Copic pens on the other one. Hero Arts have used distress inks which look really nice, but I don't have any of these in my craft stash yet! I have stamped it up with Coffee Archival Ink pad on walnut cream Bazzill smoothie.

Create & Take

Today's Create & Take was using the new Scor-Buddy Tool & peel offs. This great little tool is ideal for card makers as it is not too bulky. It comes with scor tool & it's own little bag. A simple but effective card.
