Over at Stampingforpleasure Sarn has specified that TWO cards must be submitted in order to be eligible, so, check out Sunday Sketch and Stamp who have a super CAS sketch which I thought I would have a go at - for my second card .......
And here is my make .....
- 15cm square white, 250 gsm, card blank and matching sized envelope
- 13½cm square white card (x 2 including the insert)
- Black card (x 2 including the insert) for matting at 1/16" cut using my perfect layering ruler and a craft knife.
- The snippet left from the A4 of white card was the perfect size for the image panel so all I had to do was cut to 13½cm width and mat on black card too - perfick!
- Distress Inks: worn lipstick, festive berries and aged mahogany applied to the panel using a Tim Holtz mini distressing tool and foam pad and set aside to dry
- Hero Arts sentiment stamped on to the white base panel using Ranger Archival jet black ink
- Penny Black foliage image stamped on to my distress ink panel using Versamark ink and then pan pastels in bright gold, bronze and a touch of silver added using a pointed Sofft tool - once done it was buffed using a cloth
- Paper Artsy "splatter" image stamped randomly using the worn lipstick ink
- Spray and Shine used to set both the ink and the pan pastel
And the peeps at Pan Pastels have specified Pink, Pink and more Pink - I know one crafter this would be PERFECT for - Wynneth, you KNOW who I'm talking about!!! Maybe later ....
Have a great Monday
