Create. Just because.

Yesterday, I sat down to get inky and painty.  

But got stuck with what I was trying to do.  

So, just got a blank piece of card, picked a couple of distress inks I haven't been using lately, and went for it.  

Distress stains started the background, then some stamping and stencilling in similar colours.  More background added with stamping in black and white. Then topped off with Glinda from The Octopode Factory, coloured in with Neocolors.  

Now, what to do with this piece of whatever? Stick it onto a piece of corrugated card to "frame" it.  Just needed some words to finish it off.  I looked at a set of sticker words I have, and they jumped out.  

And now I have a piece to remind me to Create.  Just because.

What have you been creating lately? I'm coming to look...


  1. Love the colours and the textures! X

  2. Hey sweetie ... great to meet you properly today ... What a fun afternoon and we seem to have so much in common. Hopefully I can give the Creative Quakers a miss one of these Saturday's and pop across to see you in Fairfield instead. Glad I've found you, off to eat cake ~ Sarah x
