Hi all. Another birthday card today, but this time a CAS card for the Less is More Challenge where they are asking for the colours aquamarine and black. I used a NBUS embossing folder called Tied Together by Couture Creations, a folder I have always wanted but could never seem to get hold of but I suddenly spotted it and managed to get it but not available now. I was also lucky enough to win over at the Allsorts Challenge and part of the prize was this pretty stamp called Large Butterfly Border from Stamps by Chloe, and this is also its first outing.
I decided to ink the EF and do a print from it by rubbing the ink over one side of the folder, spritzing with a little water and pressing it down onto my strip of white card for which I used Broken China Distress Ink. I then stamped the border overlapping this lattice pattern using Versafine Clair Nocturne Ink and then stamped the sentiment just beneath using the same ink. I finished by adding it to a piece of black card before mounting it on to my base white card.
I am entering the following challenges:
NBUS Challenge - No. 49 Where we use our Never Before Used Schtuff.
Less is More Challenge - No. 480 - Colours.
Stamping Sensations April Challenge - Anything Stamped/CAS.
