The Craft Barn Weekly Challenge - Hat(s)

As always seems to happen just before the new year my mojo went on holiday but with the return of the Craft Barn weekly challenges this week I seem to have gained the momentum to get going again in my craft room.

The first weekly challenge for 2016 is to use a hat or hats on a project.

For my card I stamped the image and coloured the elegant lady with Spectrum Noir pencils before masking her and colouring the background with Distress Inks. I created the panel using the wrinkle free Distress Ink technique and over-stamped it with a background stamp that has been in my collection for several years and finally seen the light of day. Now it has come out of hiding I think it will be appearing  quite often on backgrounds. The image, panel and sentiment were all then mounted onto black card before attaching to the base card.

A very nice layout on this card. The elegant lady in the hat looks very elegant and warm, just what we want in January.
