Good morning. Happy Sunday.

Here is a card for 5 challenges:

Crafty Creations #128 - Seeing Double
The Paper Shelter #23 Colour Green
Totally Papercrafts - One for the Boys
Crafty Catz #92 No Pink or Blue Allowed
CES Challenge #46 Humour / Funny

I hope you like the two sentiments. I find them funny but that I have a weird sense of humour.

For the seeing double you actually have a reflection. This was done by inking the stamp with die based Adirondack Bottle ink and transferring the image onto a brayer. This ink was then rolled onto the white card. The image was stamped again in the usual way  and then both were cut out.

The main image stamp, the cogs and gears and the quote from Thomas Edison are all from Creative Expressions - designs by Sam Poole. The other sentiment is by Clarity Stamps.

The card is made from a dark green base A5 card. Layered onto this is another piece of green card which had been sprayed with Glimmer Mist through a Tattered Angels screen.

All of the images were tinted with Shabby Shutters Distress Ink before being bonded into position with paper glue.
