I was absolutely delighted to win a recent challenge at CASology and thrilled when I received Melissa's email inviting me to guest design at CASology once again. I love CAS designs so this challenge is right up my street and I love to join in when I can.
So, this week's challenge has just gone live and this is the cue word this week...
I had a few ideas flying around in my brain, some of which were better in theory than in practice. I did end up making two cards to share with you though. Here's the first one...
I blended three Distress Inks across my card base, one of which is my new fave shade, Abandoned Coral. I then took a panel of white cardstock and die cut the pierced border to split it into two parts. I placed them back together to stamp the flower, to ensure the stem was straight, and then stamped the sentiment. I adhered the panels flat to the card base, leaving a gap for the 'line' of blended ink to show through.
- Ink: Distress Ink - Abandoned Coral, Spiced Marmalade, Mustard Seed; Versafine - Onyx Black
- Stamps: Clearly Besotted - Flower Arrangement
- Die: Avery Elle - Dotted Borders Die
Sketch Saturday - Week #370
Here's my second card using the word 'line' as my inspiration...
I used a stamp by Lawn Fawn which is one line which forms a curvy line and sentiment. I thought it looked like the wire for a string of lights so I stamped little bulbs along it. The bulb and screw fixing is one stamp so I used my ink cubes to first stamp the thread part in silver, and then the main bulb in blue, green and red. I then added Glossy Accents to each bulb for some shine.
- Stamps: Lawn Fawn - Scripty Sayings; Card-io Majestix - Deck the Hall
- Ink: Versa Color - Silver, Camelia, Green, Royal Blue; Versafine - Onyx Black
- Accents: Glossy Accents
