Obliteration room

A friend of mine sent me this link yesterday. Wow.

I had been looking for inspiration for a friends birthday card.. and this was it.

Spots made using cotton buds and the ends of wooden kebab sticks.
ETA: I've entered this one into the CAS-ual Fridays Birthday challenge - thanks for the heads up, Tara!

This one is based on last weeks Less Is More sketch again... which I am going to come back to time and time again, I'm sure!

Also, some exciting news.. I made the top 5 in the Allsorts Challenge with my pirate shaker card from the last post... my excitement was only slightly dimmed when I realised there were only 18 entrants ;)

Hope you all have a lovely bank holiday weekend. I just need to finish packing my things, and I'm off for the weekend!


  1. Wow M, love your cards. The colours are fantastic, just like a rainbow!

    Well done on winning, it feels great to win something, doesn't it? It's real recognition for your cards.

    Have a lovely weekend, don't forget your bikini, it's scorching out there lol


  2. I love the inspiration photo - could do with a room like that to thrash out my tensions! I really how you've interpreted it too - inspired idea to use cotton buds and kebabs as ink dabbers. You could enter the birthday one into this week's CASual Friday challenge as it certainly fits the bill.

  4. The photo gave me an immediate headache and I'm so impressed you made such fabulous cards using it for inspiration! I particularly like the one where you use the negative from a punch/die cut. Great technique too. Don't let anything dim your excitement about winning a challenge - that pirate shaker card is absolutely top class! Vicky x
