April Calander

Hello and welcome to the Sarah Hurley inspiration blog.

I't's my turn (Clare) to post and I should mention the Easter bunny has been and I'm currently on route to an Easter egg hunt hence the scheduled post lol.

We are now onto month four of our calendar inspiration post and did you know you too can join in the fun? 

We have had a few really good days of bright sunshine which is rare here in Scotland  so that may explain my bright colour choice lol.

As a newbie to using distress inks I don't have many colours but it proves you can still achieve a great background.

Whenever I wanted a subtle colour, I stamped once onto a scrap bit paper before stamping directly onto the page. Another tip is you don't always have to use an acrylic block, just ink and press down onto the page with your fingers.

Here's a list of stamps I used from Sarah's shop, my particulate favourite being the mini texture background stamp set. You get 4 in total which I think is a great starter set for creating your own backgrounds.

That's all from me today, hope you are having a great Easter weekend and be sure to pop by soon for more inspiration from the design team.
