City Crafter Challenge Blog - On the Border



Stella has chosen this week's challenge at City Crafter and she has chosen : 'on the border - add a border to your project.'
The Dutch border near Stella's home
For my DT card I created a background using Distress inks and Perfect Pearls and stamped it with a script stamp (Inigoblu). Then I stamped a border of pencils down the side. (This is a UM with no branding - could be Art Journey?) . Finally, using the Silhouette electronic die-cutter, I cut the sentiment from glitter paper.

Our Guest Designer this week is Brenda. I hope you'll come over to City Crafter, see what Brenda and the rest of the DT have made, and join in the challenge.

I'd like to enter:
