I have made a card for the CAS and Christmas challenges to share with you today.
First up, the CAS challenge.
I stamped my poppies and coloured them with my Zig Watercolour Pens. Then I stamped the image onto post-it notes and fussy-cut to create a mask. Yellow ink was sponged over top of a mesh stencil and then I removed the mask and stamped a simple sentiment.
I'm entering this into the Addicted to Stamps & More Challenge #157 - Make Your Mark.
Next, the Christmas challenge.
Lots of sparkle on this card, although it's hard to see in the photo above so I'm including a close-up below. I used brushos on coated card stock for the background (thanks Susan for the card stock!). The coated card stock shows more muted tones of Brushos ... so pretty. Then I stamped over top with a snowflake background and heat embossed in iridescent embossing powder. The hills and trees are die-cut and more sparkle was added with some Dazzling Details glitter glue. The sentiment is stamped using the new Happy Little Stampers Mixed Christmas Sentiments. :)
Here's the close-up so you can see the sparkle ...
We also have a fun Sketch challenge.
I hope I have inspired you to play along. The challenges are open for another couple of weeks. Come join in the fun! :)
Thanks for coming by for a visit. And always, I love hearing from you!
