Who caught our eye ½ way post

Good Tuesday Morning to you all! 

We are ½ way on our Top Tip Tuesday Challenge and I know its a difficult Challenge being one Layer and I have to say that the entries we have had are awesome!

I have to say I am amazed with all the creative talent of the challengers that have entered so far! There's still one week left to join in on the One Layer Card Challenge.
So come and see who won the Guest Design spot on our who caught our eye post! and if you have not joined in yet then come and show us what you got!

If you are looking for MORE inspiration, our fabulous Annette has created another card to awesome card and also written you a tutorial too!
I also wanted to have another go as one layer cards always scare the life out of me…. 
So I have had a play with distress inks and tried a new technique.. 
So my Tip is to try using distress inks on your Acrylic blocks for stamping colour blocks, Ink, Spray and stamp, let dry and stamp another image over the top. 

Really simple and very quick and even my Husband said wow that is really great! 
The challenges I am playing along with are:

Craft Your Passion - Power of Three – 3 blocks of colour
Lollipop Crafts - Anything Goes
The Crazy Challenge - Anything Goes

Have a great day
and don't forget to come and join us at
