Fun and Games

It’s my turn to set the challenge at Daring Cardmakers this week and I'd like to challenge you to a game — indoor games, outdoor games, whatever sort of game you like!

I chose chess and used another of the Katzelkraft bargains I scored a while ago. I picked this set because hubby and eldest grandson sometimes play chess when they get together — the tables have turned and grandad’s experience doesn’t always mean he wins these days! 

This needed to go airmail so my preferred one-layer aesthetic was perfect, a bit of masking to place the pieces on the board and protect them from the inks (smooshed on with acetate), a doodled border and a few glossy dots keep it all light and flat. 

King’s Gambit (Katzelkraft)
Essential Messages (Hero Arts, retired)

Bristol board

Shadow Ink by Hero Arts (Charcoal and Soft Granite)
Versafine by Tsukineko (Onyx Black)
Tim Holtz Distress and Oxide ink by Ranger (various blues, I lost track)

Pearl pen by Viva Decor (Anthracite)

Thanks for stopping by.

Terrific card for a young man with that smooshed BG. And a nice contrast to the B&W-perfect for a chess player! hugs Margot

This is stunning, Joanne - what a great design. I was just about to email you as I've not seen you posting much recently. I hope you and yours are all ok, Jo x

Your card looks very "artsy" and intellectual ;-). Love it!
