Crafty Individuals Challenge #1


This month sees the launch of the CI challenge blog.  The challenge runs until 26 April, so plenty of time to get an entry in.  The theme is 'simply squares'.  So in keeping with the theme, I kept my piece very simple indeed using only squares!!!  The background is a 4" square of corrugated cardboard with the top layer torn off and coloured with walnut stain distress stain.  I then stamped my favourite CI-110 image with wild honey distress stain.  The stamp is rectangular so I cut it out using a spellbinders eyelet squares die cut.  I inked the edges with antique linen distress stain.  I attached it using two square brads and added three square gems top right.
