CAS Card

Good morning everyone,
I’ve a cute CAS card to show today that I made for Rubber Dance.
It uses the Textured Spring and Textured Flowers stamp sets.

CAS cards are always a challenge for me, but those that know me know that I like a good challenge!
So I will keep plugging away at it.  I really enjoyed this one because I used water-colour pencils and just played with them. It’s amazing how quick time flies when you are colouring in. It was very relaxing.
To try different styles is a really good way to help you know what it is that you love to do too.

Please pop over to the Rubber Dance blog and check how heaps of amazing inspiration that the girls have shared.

Our challenge for the month you can choose from a colour combo, or to alter something.  So for the mixed media lovers there is something for you too.


I would like to enter this into the CAS-ual Fridays challenge – #196 Spring Fever

Also in Lost Coast Portal to Creativity challenge #50 – Pretty as a Picture

Thank you for stopping by my blog.

Happy Stamping!

Beautiful Blooms for FSC

Beautiful Blooms
is the new challenge this month at Fashionable Stamping Challenges.
There is beauty in simplicity.
With this in mind, I have done something a little different to my usual style this month.
A CAS creation!  I know, shock…horror! lol
The Flower INKognito stamp from Visible Image is a new stamp in my collection and I thought it would be a great one to use to showcase simplicity.
I like how the stamp has held the original ink for so many stampings.
The main image is done using Versafine Onyx Black.  Then followed with 3rd, 4th and 5th generation stamping.  The way that some of the ink has caught around the edge of the image (probably from me pressing down hard) is a nice, though unexpected, highlight.
The ghosting of the images, when using multiple generation stamping, is best when it is not ‘cluttered’ with a background – so no distress ink is used on this one.
The metal leaf is textured with black and quite gesso, as is the string.
It was really…really…really difficult for me not to add more splashes, or words, or colour, or go around the ghosted images with something.  
In the end I am happy with the whole look of this CAS creation.
The girls at FSC have come up with some inspiring and very different versions on the same theme.
Please pop on over and check out the awesomeness of their creativity,
 be inspired, and maybe join in our fun.
Flonzcraft are our sponsors this fortnight and have a generous $20 gift voucher up for grabs,

there are spotlights and a top 3 picked by the DT as well.
Stamping must be the focal point on your project!
