Good morning crafters, hope you are all well, bit of a miserable day here today - where did the sun go? I have a few posts today, and will start off with a card for Colour Create Challenge week 8 - Navy, Turquoise and Lime, with an extra option - create your card or project without using any design papers. I have chosen one of the new Whiff of Joy stamps from the Spring Collection called Oakley with Slipover. He has been coloured with WC Brushes, and Sukura Gel Pens, and has then been cut with Label nesty, and layered on Lime green and Navy cardstock. The backing paper was made using a Turquoise Moon Shadow Ink, and the "cling-film" technique. I punched some lime green card with a Photo-corner punch, stamped a senitment from Lili of the Valley, and finished the card off with some paper flowers, pearl brads, and green gems from my craft stash.

What a lovely card. I'm curious; what's the cling-film technique??

Oooh, love the blue- what a great technique. I've never used any inks like that but got some in the little freebie package I got so hope to try them out at some point x

Thanks for your explanation of the cling-film technique (I learn a lot English since I've been making cards).
