Good Cluck

Hi there. I have a CAS card to share today using a background made with Distress Oxides Sprays, and Lumi Spray from Craftbox UK:

I made a few backgrounds at the weekend using the Tim Holtz Distress Sprays. I have had these for a while and not really played with them, but I like more muted look to them as compared to blending the Distress Oxide inks.

I also sprayed some Lumi Spray in green on top – the green became more muted – but the shine remained.

I cut a square out of the yellow toned piece of card, then stamped the chicken image, placing the square below the opening in the Reverse Confetti cover panel die.

I think a very CAS card, but quite effective with the yellow and shiny tone.

I shall be entering the following challenges:

Coral Rose and Whoa There!

Hello there. I have a couple of cards to share with you today. The first is a card with the Colorado Craft Company ‘Sympathy and Friendship Rose’ – a huge stamp – covering 5 inches square:

The second card is even more CAS:

For the first card, I stamped the image in Catherine Pooler ‘Coral Cabana‘ then heat embossed with clear embossing powder, with my plan to water-colour the image. That plan changed when I saw how gorgeous it looked just as it is -so the water-colour is for another day, with another colour outline!

I layered that panel onto a navy blue card, added a sentiment from a Thirsty Brush and Co stamp and die set, added three Cosmic Shimmer Cosmic Twinkles ‘Decadent Teal‘ drops and left it there.

I think that coral colour with this stamp is very striking, and I may have to explore that colour even further…….

The second card is using an Altenew sentiment, then stamping an image from Stampers Anonymous/Tim Holtz ‘Funny Farm’ stamp set. I thought of this image immediately when I saw the current challenge at CASology, and this Altenew sentiment from the ‘Build-a-Flower Daffodil‘ set seemed to fit just perfectly.

The first rose card will be entered into the following challenges:
