Quick and Easy SplodgeAway

Hi there friends, hope you're having a good weekend. I had all good intentions of spending the day in the garden but the weather soon put paid to that so I've had a lazy afternoon watching tv and eating chocolate (much more fun lol). My card today is a very quick and easy card made with SplodgeAway masks and some of my old favourite stamps from Chocolate Baroque.

I've used the gorgeous Vintage Birdcage masks and one of the pretty feminine border masks with dylusions spray inks. Once the background was dry I stamped the sentiment, bird and the swirly border using stamps from Fly Away with Me by Chocolate Baroque, a bit of black card for matting and layering and the card was finished. Easy peasy :-)

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
A Gem of a challenge: things with wings
Creative Corner: things with wings
Sweet Stampin: clean and simple
Totally Papercrafts: clean and simple

I'm off back to the TV and chocolate now so enjoy the rest of your day and I'll be back in the morning with my DT project for PanPastel UK
Thanks for popping by,
