Letters and Numbers for Try it on Tuesday

Hello and welcome to Try it on Tuesdays first Challenge of 2016 where the theme is 'Letters and Numbers'.


Regular visitors to my blog might remember that I did Marjie Kemper's online course 'Creative Ink' a few months back,  so with this as a starting point and the fact that this PaperArtsy Lady has been languishing in the drawer, uninked for a while, and her 'dream'  gave me the inspiration for this page.
I've used Cracked Pistachio, Abandoned coral and Wilted Violet for the background and the same inks for some background stamping and stencilling.  The main images were stamped with Archival Jet Black.
The rest of the DT have some wonderful inspiration for you, so please pop over to the main blog, and you will also find all the details there.
That's all for now, Thanks for visiting, I do appreciate it,
Avril xx

I had to click on this and make it larger as I wanted to read all the sentiments. I wish I had good dreams - it seems that most of what I dream are nightmares!
The background colors are wonderful - a very thought provoking card!

I love the PaperArtsy Lady image and the colours that you've used. I've just bought last year's Distress colours so this is great inspiration for me as I haven't had chance to use them yet. Sandra X

Diggin all the stamps in the background. I had tk read em all. Hehe! Wonderful colors and the main image sure does pop. Aspiring to reach out dreams gives us motivation, and you certainly motivated me to try the different stamping techniques. Hugz ~Niki
