Hello Everyone - welcome to our brand new challenge at Addicted to CAS. We have been so thoroughly overwhelmed in these past weeks at the amount of entries and the outstanding quality. You're certainly making it very difficult for us to choose our Top 3 and CAS Perfectionist and the Facebook Showcase entry. But, we're loving it - so please keep up the brilliant work!
Our new challenge which is hosted by the lovely Sue is:
This week we are so lucky to be sponsored by Andrea over at Annabelle Stamps!!
Andrea has offered a $10 discount voucher at her store!!
For my DT card I have chosen to use my Stampin Up Feeling Sentimental stamp set and decided on the Penny Farthing stamp and the Celebrate sentiment. I started off by die cutting a piece of cream card with a nestie. I left the die in place and used a paper piercer to prick all around the die. I then inked around with DI Antique Linen. I stamped the penny farthing using Versafine Sepia and then, without re-inking, stamped the image twice more to give two faded images. The sentiment was stamped over the images. The card base is a 5"x7" and has been matted and layered onto bazzill cardstock, two pieces of which have been embossed using a tree bark e/f. I've added some Bakers' Twine and popped the main image up on foam.
I've also made a second card for this challenge - must be on a roll!!! lol
Thanks to the heads up from our lovely Marie, there is a challenge over at The Craft-Room which is "Something for a Man" so am entering these cards. Also, by sheer luck (hehe) the latest challenge over at Less is More is Paper Piecing which fits perfectly with my first card. Pop on over and see the wonderful inspiration provided by Chrissie & Jen.
