This week we are welcoming back the lovely Anne Redfern aka Redanne into the Designer Spotlight. If you haven't visited her blog you are in for a real treat! Please pop by to say 'Hi'

I used Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Grunged and Stitches Cling Stamp Sets for the background and made a couple of birthday cards.


I used Ranger Watercolor Paper and a Mini Misti Stamping Tool to stam the splatters using a selection of Simon Says Stamp Ink Pads, Teeny Bikini, Key Lime, Lemon Chiffon and Orange Peel. I then used a Shadow Grey for the random letters and Maliblue for the stringy looking stamp. I have to say I do love this background and had a lot of fun stamping ;-)

I also used a new Simon Says Stamp Lil' Critters Boston Terrier Die and a Scripty Happy Birthday Die Set






Thanks for looking :-)
