Sunday Spot

Have you played along with AAA Cards Facebook group's Weekend Workout? It's all about creating a CAS card that's FUN.

I was really inspired by the graphic when I created my card:

I started by masking off a strip at the bottom of a square card and then inked all over it with shaded lilac distress ink. Then I used Funky Fossil's Diwali Candle to create a bokeh effect on top of the strip with five other colours of distress ink. 

I wanted to add a really light colour to finish off so chose a distress oxide ink in squeezed lemonade. The oxide inks tend to be much more intense, creamy and opaque and have the ability to stand out on top of dark colours.

I stamped over this bokeh panel with Guitar Hero and added the sentiment - which I love - above it. I'm thinking this card is pretty fun and I love the bright happy colours!

Stamps: Funky Fossil, Guitar Hero
Inks: Ranger distress, shaded lilac, cracked pistachio, mermaid lagoon, picked raspberry, wilted violet, blueprint sketch; Ranger distress oxide, squeezed lemonade; Versafine Clair, nocturne
Stencil: Funky Fossil, Diwali Candle

I'm hoping you'll pop over to facebook and join in with this fun challenge. There's really no closing date, but you do need to be a member of the AAA Cards facebook group. 

Thanks for stopping by, I've loved having you visit my blog.

Stay safe and keep crafting!

  1. Smashing card, a sure winner! I couldn’t resist buying more stash from Funky Fossil this weekend. I really need to ask them to record my purchases on my account so that I don’t duplicate my stencils!!!!
