Peaceful Scene

Hi there. I have a CAS card to share today. Here is the card:

I used an image from a Funky Fossil stamp set called ‘Adventure’ , and a little masking of the stamp.

I first masked the bottom half of the stamp – the water – then inked the trees – and remembered to remove the masking tape (!!) before stamping. Then I masked the top half of the stamp, inked the top half – again removing the masking paper – then stamped the bottom half.

I had to ink the stamp a couple of times – I think my ink pads are getting a little dry………….but they are old. I may have to see of they have been retired or see if they still sell the re-inkers.

I stamped the bird, then die cut the image using a square off-set to make a triangle.

I don’t have many washi tapes, but after using my one and only washi tape as a DT card and struggling a few months ago – I ordered some more. This washi is quite wide, so I cut three strips down the length…..my goodness that stuff is sticky! I ended up with bits all over the place initially….

Then I stuck three pieces down along the edge of the card, overlapping a little. The washi has images of the world, an old fashioned map, which I thought suited the stamp set and image quite well.

I then turned to the sentiment – I know, it seems it’s always the last for me to stamp…..but if I use my Misti it seems to work each time. Thank goodness. Just imagine if I messed the sentiment stamping and the card had to be binned – or at least have an extra banner placed over the mess……

Anyhoo – it stamped correctly!

There are few adventure sentiments in this set, about exploring, but with the current global situation – I went for one which meant you didn’t really have to leave home – maybe?

I shall be entering the following challenges:
