Hello Friend … Just For You

I would like to thank Uniko for selecting my card as a winner in their challenge #66 Flowers.

Hello and welcome back

Today’s I decided to play along with AAA cards Challenge – using 2 quarters to create a CAS card. I don’t make many CAS cards so thought it was a good chance to make something different and test my design ideas.

I divided the card front into quarters and used Uniko – Floral Vines Clear Stamp Set to go diagonally across each quarter. The images were watercoloured with Distress Inks using some of my favourite colours.

After erasing the pencil lines and masking off the triangles, I used theTim Holtz – Mini Collection Stencil 11 – Stripes to fill in using the same pink Distress ink.

The senitments are from the same set, stamped in Brilliance -Lightning Black ink. I added a little Gelly Roll to go over the little spots and add a few more.

I was really happy with the way it turned out. I really wasn’t sure as I planning it. 🙂

Thanks so much for taking the time to visit.  I love to read your comments and will be sure to check out your blog.

I hope all is going well for you all! Stay safe!

Cheers

Helen

I live in sunny Queensland, Australia with my husband and daughter. Since I was a child, I have always loved to create and have enjoyed all kinds of crafts, sewing and painting. China painting helped develop my understanding of colour and design. Over the last few years card making has taken up a major part of my crafting time as I love to play with new techniques and mediums. Since beginning my blog, entering various challenges has encouraged me to grow my skills and creativity.
