Tuesday Talk

Today I'm sharing a card I made for a couple pf challenges - CAS Mix Up and Addicted to CAS.

http://casmixup.blogspot.co.uk/2016/09/cas-mix-up-september-challenge.html        http://addictedtocas.blogspot.co.uk/2016/09/challenge-97-stitch.html

Such a brilliant combo of elements to include. Here's my card:

I used a piece of shaving foam marbled card and stitched down one side of it with my sewing machine. This strip was then adhered to the left side of a white base card.

I added my stamped sentiment -  love using inspiring word stamps like this one - using my misti to get that good heavy cover of ink that I was after. The I finished off with a trio of enamel dots to draw the eye. The stitching and the dots are the 'choice' element from CAS Mix Up.

Stamps: Visible Image, smile sparkle shine
Inks: Memento, tuxedo black; Ranger distress re-inkers, peacock feathers & mowed lawn
Emabellishments: Doodlebug sprinkles, beetle black asst.

Thanks for dropping by today, your visit has made my day.  And keep crafting!
