AAA Cards Challenge #118 - Use a Frame

For the next fortnight the theme for AAA Cards has been chosen by DT Ksenija and she would like to see a frame on your CAS cards. She has a wonderful post about frames and staying CAS on her blog - HERE.

And since this Concord & 9th stamp and die was out on my desk from yesterday I decided to use it along with some goodies from our sponsor STAMPlorations.

I started by die cutting the frame and then used it to place the string and nail stamp. I then masked off the frame area and used a STAMPloration stencil and distress inks to create the picture background. I added an uplifting STAMPloration sentiment and the paint splatters from Precious Remembrance shop.

To finish off I used a Copic pen to add some shadow to the frame.

Stamps: STAMPlorations, Noteworthy; PRS, Positive thoughts
Inks:Memento, tuxedo black; Ranger distress, picked raspberry, wilted violet
Stencil: ARTplorations, Happy Flowers
Die: Concord & 9th, Furry Friends
Pens: Copic, C1, C5

I have to say you will be blown away by the AAA Cards DT cards and of course our fabulous Guest Designer Natasha too! Find them all HERE.

Thanks for your time today, it's always more fun when I have some company.

And keep crafting!
