January 2013 Calender
This is my first post for 2013. I have not been very well over Christmas, but I am on the mend now so have had a little play.
I have not crafted for about 3 weeks so I was a tad rusty.
I was having a look around blogland when I noticed that the talented Kate Crane was doing her Calender Challenge again for 2013, so I thought I would have a go again. I did not get a chance to do them all last year, but I did do a few and I really enjoyed getting inky.
For all the details of the Challenge go here and take a look at Kate's fab blog.
I have chosen to use some Cosmic Shimmer Ink Sprays (I won these with Katy on Scrap 365, if you are a scrapbooker you should check out this magazine, it's fantastic, I just cannot wait for mine to drop on the doormat each month).
I have also used a Paperartsy vintage button stamp, a free star stamp from the December Craft Stamper magazine, and a few stamps from a "Park" collection by American Crafts.
The date squares are cut from a sheet of Basic Grey "Aspen Frost" paper and the edges have been inked with Walnut stain.
I have highlighted with a white posca pen on the stars and in the background I have used a "Crafters workshop" mask which is called mini flower frenzy.
