You're in my Thoughts



Hi everyone.  Another two weeks has rolled around so we have the start of the next Addicted to CAS Challenge.  This time the challenge is being run by the multi-talented Deepti (Dee's Art Utopia).



This challenge is sponsored by



I used my chevron stencil (cut with my Silhouette Cameo), and sprayed lightly with lime green watercolour spray onto card stock.  I quickly removed the stencil, otherwise the spray will seep underneath and blur the image, so the quicker it's removed, the more crisp the image.  Then I simply stamped the flower heads and sentiment in black.  Quick, easy and CAS card that only took a few minutes to make. :)

This month we have Kathy K (Purple Princess Diaries) joining us as Guest Designer. I hope you'll drop by the challenge blog and check out Kathy's chevron card, along with the rest of the inspiring cards done by the design team.

I hope you'll join us for this fun challenge.  As always, the challenge runs for two weeks, so there's lots of time to play along.  Hope to see you in the gallery!

Love this Loll, I love the way you cut all your own stencils too? Do you design them, or buy them? I have a Scan n' Cut but don't use it as often as I should . . . the mats are so expensive and flimsy! Have a lovely weekend my friend! Hazel xx
