PaperArtsy Challenge with inspiration from Keren Baker.

Hi Everyone,

At the beginning of this week over on the PaperArtsy blog we were wowed once again by Guest Designer Keren Baker.  I really loved her project this week, the techniques for which were spread over her 3 day spot but as per usual I left myself very short of time so had to make a much less involved project.  I decided to make a card (especially as I need to get a few cards in hand for emergencies ;D) and although I don't suppose I incorporated too many of the techniques Keren demonstrated I definitely took inspiration from her beautiful bright and clean looking project the second part of which you can see HERE.





Short and sweet from me tonight.  Have a good Sunday everyone and Happy Father's Day to all you Dads out there.  We're off to our Son and DIL's for dinner today and chance to spend some precious time with our lovely Alexa.  I'm spoilt this week as I got to spend time with Izzy and Charlie at the beginning of the week too!

See you again soon.

Hugs
Lesley  Xx

So beautiful, the contrast between the white space and the vivid colours makes the image pop!

Great work Lesley. I love that focal stamp (might have to be tempted) the blue and yellow work together a treat in your design and really pop out from the black. A really lovely card. Have a great day today. Elaine xxx
