Quickie cards required...........D

Hi all
I supply simple greeting cards to our team at work for when one is needed in a hurry so here they are.  

Really quick makes.  

I scored A5 card in half to make A6 cards.  I wiped over the card using TH distress ink pads and sprayed with water.  Some are darker than others but they were never meant to be identical.  I then stamped images using various stamps onto the same type of card.  Wiped with ink, sprayed with water, distressed the edges and wiped more ink over the top with a final spray of water.  Sentiment stamps from my hoard were used and VOILA all done 


Hope you like my quickie makes!

Hugz to all

Elaine aka Ellapu xxx
