52 Week Mini Art Card/Tag Challenge

Vibrant Background Challenge Card

Today, Thursday 13th April, Eileen Godwin set a challenge of creating "A background of vibrant colours'.  I think I have fulfilled the brief with this card.  

I have used a selection of colours of Archival Inks through the Clarity Stamps "Abstract Squares" stencil in the background.

I then used Versafine Clair "Nocturne" black ink through the Funky Fossil Designs stencil called "Ava".  I used the same ink to stamp the "Happy Birthday" sentiment, which is part of the Clarity stamps set called "Christmas & Celebration Words".

When I showed the completed card to Hubby, he said "that's not at all your style", which is true it isn't my normal, but I enjoyed making it all the same.  I guess that is what taking part in challenges is all about!


  1. Absolutely gorgeous and you have fulfilled the brief, bright and beautiful Sam x

  2. Thank You for visiting my blog, apologies for not visiting,my mobility issues and pain have increased in the past few weeks and I have really only been visiting cards submitted to the challenges where I am on the DT . Hopefully having surgery at the end of the month. You've made an absolutely brilliant selection of cards,especially love the butterfly and today's one

    1. So sorry for the delay in replying, we've been away in the caravan for a few days. How horrible for you to be in so much pain. I hope the surgery goes to plan and you are feeling more comfortable. Thank you for your kind words on my makes x

  3. This is very cleverly done Sam with the different brightly coloured shapes for the background and the stamped face is so striking over the top. You have done a few of Eileen's challenges, but I can't seem to find where they are happening. Is it Eileen's facebook page?
