One Card, two styles

morning everyone, it's been a lovely week down here in the Cornwall.  Changeable weather but beautiful blue skies in between the showers.  Sadly not quite warm enough to go dipping in the sea though. (well not for me anyway).  Thought I'd share a couple of views across the mouth of the River Fal with you.  A Navy ship had just arrived for renovation in the docks.  It looks so small from the hill but was actually mahusive.  

My card today was one we made back in January.  We took JOFY Stamps, chose one style and used two distress inks, Worn Lipstick and Evergreen Boughs to create two different looks by adding a distressed and water blown background to the one on the left. Simple but effective cards. Hope you like:-)  

There's still a few days left to leave a comment on this months giveaway post.  Two winners will receive the digital PDF project sheet for my Communique Album, below.  If you haven't left a comment and would like to be in with a chance to win just click here to go to the post.
Time to get up - and then who knows where the day will take us :-)  Have a great day yourself, thanks for calling by and look forward to catching up again soon x :-) C

  4. Hi Clare, Lovely piccies of Cornwall, I have never been there, but I have watched Doc Martin haha, and it looks gorgeous. We have just had massive thunder and lightening and huge balls of hailstones, it's awful !!
    I love these two cards, the first one with the watercoloured background is my favourite although I do love the second one too. I really love JOFY stamps, I just wish I could afford all of them that I want haha.
    Lots of love from Patricia xx
