By The Yard by Karen Wright

 Wow where has the summer gone? We’ve spent the whole of the summer on our SplodgeAway alphabet, and this week sees the last letter Y, and the challenge was by the yard, so I’ve use ribbon and also faux stitching.
Project By Karen Wright
I started by taping the star SplodgeAway mask onto Easy ink card, and using the SplodgeAway mat I applied several distress inks in autumnal colours, I used spiced marmalade, shabby shutters and walnut stain.

For the owl, leave and phrase I used my cricut and give a hoot cartridge once assembled I heat embossed with clear powder to give it a glossy coat, once the card was assembled and the American crafts ribbon attached I used a white POSCA pen to make the faux stitching.

I love the new mask, to me it gives the impression of a quilting pattern and I know it will be very versatile for many projects.

Thank you for joining us through the summer and I know weve got many new exciting things coming your way on the blog including some challenges and give aways, be sure to pay us a visit again real soon.
