Miles Apart, But Close At Heart

Hello there, I have a CAS card to share for a couple of challenges:

I wanted an opportunity to use this Simon Says Stamp die again, as I’d previously used it with an alcohol ink background.

I took a piece of textured cream card from Papermill Direct, and cut the heart into it. I then put strips of double-sided sticky tape on the back making sure the sticky showed through the heart, and stuck it down onto a black card base.

I again cut the heart using a plum/purple card-stock, and paper-pieced the ‘streams’ of the heart into place onto the exposed double-sided sticky tape peaking through the heart……..no glue required……..

The sentiment – appropriate for the current times – is from a Heffy Doodle stamp set – lots of really, really, good sentiments in this set.

So – stamping in black onto a textured piece of card – it only took about four goes – thank goodness for the Misti!

Tropical Summer Corners

Hello once again. A new challenge has just begun at The Alphabet Challenge. We have reached the letter ‘I’ – and we want to see your ‘Island Fun’ – anything tropical.

Here is my card:

I used the ‘Summer Corners’ stamp set from Clearly Besotted, stamped with Gina K amalgam ink, then coloured with Copics.

The ended up being e a one layer card too – something I struggle with – but felt I just had to give it a go again.

I actually enjoyed colouring these images, enjoyed the colour selection process and just playing around with blending. The sentiment is from Heffy Doodle – and required some surgery……..!

I know – I don’t do this very often, and instead of masking and failing – which would ruin the hard colouring work I had already done – I cut the sentiment in half to place as you see………..I must have been very brave that day!

I hope you can come and join us with your Island and tropical makes – I look forward to seeing you in our gallery. xx
