We have a brand new challenge at Time Out and for the next couple of weeks, it's a theme with an optional twist challenge. The theme: celebrations. The optional twist: die-cutting or fussy cutting.
I went with the twist -- sort of. I was working on a few new designs and I cut the framed flutters using my electronic die-cutting machine and then used the die-cut as a stencil/mask. I placed it on my card base and then sponged mustard seed Distress ink all over. I removed the stencil/mask and I stamped the butterflies (Trendy Butterflies) in pumpkin pie HA ink. I stamped the sentiment (cut from the sentiment in Framed Christmas: Celebrate the Season) in black ink. I decided to trace and doodle the frame with a brown Crafter's Companion Aqua marker. I added tiny blue splatters by flicking a waterbrush against the tip of blue Inktense pencil.
Check out the cards the team + guest designer Elizabeth made and then link up your own project. We can't wait to see them! CAS-ual Friday Stamps is sponsoring this challenge.
I'm joining in again at the CAS Mix Up April Challenge. I've got stamping and stenciling. For the third element, I went with 2 products -- Inktense pencil to create the tiny splatters and Crafter's Companion Aqua marker for the doodled frame.
Also playing once again at One Layer Simplicity Challenge (it's so nice to be able to play there again not once, but twice, this month!), where for April, we can create anything we wish (as long as it's one layer, of course!)
Thanks for stopping by! Don't forget to smile :o)
