Hi everyone! Yay, it's Wednesday...the week is half way over!!! I have a couple miscellaneous cards today; the first one is for the color challenge at Inspire Create (and while you're there, you need to check out the card that Karen F made....all the cards are cute, but hers is exceptionally so!):
I was just sort of playing around with this new stamp set, It Starts With Art, and thought I would use the challenge colors....it didn't turn out too bad, so I decided to finish it! It's uber-CAS, just one layer, but here we go:
I used markers, ink and an aquapainter to color in the design, but really, the sequins pull it all together!
I am looking forward to playing with this set some more...especially the matching dies!
The next one uses a stamp set from 100 Proof Press, which my friend Colleen always uses and then I feel like I have to have them too! This uses the CAS(E) This Sketch sketch for this week:
Again, I was just playing around with some inks and scrap paper from my stash, and luckily, it turned out pretty good....so I just kept going! I diecut the image with a square stitched die, but it didn't look right with the sentiment going across the shells, so I had enough of a scrap to diecut a wee little bit more, butted the edges together and put the sentiment on top. If you look closely, you can see the stitched line right under the sentiment banner:
I ran a Soft Sky card through the Subtle embossing folder and adhered everything on top. Aren't these shells pretty? I resisted coloring them in, but some day, I'll do that!
Thanks for popping in today!
Although I wasn't doing any coloring, Cassidy was....she is getting Jack and Jill magazine and there are always some art projects in each issue:
Enjoy your day and be blessed!
