Clean & Simple At FSC – Ship Ahoy


Ah well, finally back from our hols in Portugal and feeling quite refreshed and raring to go.
After having such a fantastic time with all the family, when we entered the house everything was awfully quite. No Byron or Penny (the fur babes) to greet us because they were still on their hols.

Picked them up the next evening and how happy were they to see us. The kennels are fantastic but being away for three weeks was more than enough for them and they practically ate us. As you can imagine the house is not very quiet now.

Fashionable Stamping are having a Clean & Simple Challenge this fortnight which is fine by me because I still have all the unpacking, washing and, dare I mention the dreaded word, dusting to do. I have Meggymay to thank for making my first challenge back such an easy peasy one … thank you sweets.

Below I mounted a piece of handmade paper onto a blue piece of cardstock which I had stamped one of Flonze Crafts stamps onto … you can find it here. Masked it off then used a Stamps Away Aperture Mask so that I could ink the edges with Stormy Sky and Weathered Wood Distressed Inks. Used another mask to ink in the birds.

Topped everything off with some stitching and a sentiment – now how easy could that be?
Time for you to enter your C&S creation but before you do check out the DT’s beautiful inspiration they are all gorgeous.
