African Continent

Hello Everyone,

As I said in my first post I created a set of three cards with an African theme. I never knew I had so many stamps that could relate to Africa. Anyway, I am going to essentially copy/paste my beginning and ending text. The challenges I used were mostly CASology and Freshly Made Sketches. Well here is the first of three cards for today, enjoy!

I created a stencil using the retired SU stamp called 'World Map' (Image below). I used the bottom left of the stamp as my guide to peel off the removable masking tape. The continent of Africa was left unpeeled that placed the rest of the masking.

The set of three cards using the African theme.

With the masking finished I started sponging Distress Inks on the card. I used Barn Door, Vintage Photo, Scattered Straw, and Spiced Marmalade. You can see the same stamp that was used in the first card, this time I stamped repetitively to create a pattern across the continent. 
A simple 'thank you' sentiment finishes off the design.

Challenges Entered:


Thank you so much for stopping by and do appreciate you taking time out of your busy day to spend time with me. I hope you all have a fantastic day and lots of good crafting vibes headed your way.
