Addicted to Stamps & More #194 - CAS



Hello there, blog friends ~
It's time for another CAS challenge at Addicted to Stamps & More! Our Sponsor for this challenge is Happy Little Stampers, and Kylie is offering a $15.00 gift certificate to her store for the winner!



Here is my card:


I'm really enjoying my new Reverse Confetti dies, so for this card, I created an ombre effect with Distress Inks, and colored this sweet little girl with Copic markers. After I stamped the sentiment strip, I thought it ‘needed something’...so, out came my embossing paste and diagonal stripes stencil. A few small silver sequins, and it was done and dusted :)

I hope you'll have some time to stop by the ATSM Blog to check out all the beautiful inspiration by my teamies...and of course, we would love it if you play along with us!

This week's Cue Card at CASology is 'Stencil', so I am adding this card to their challenge, as well.



Thanks so much for stopping by,

A precious card in every way, Barb! The darling little girl looks exactly like my niece, who sits just that way when she's 'fascinated' by a story I'm telling or a show she's watching. The embossing paste and 'sweet' die cut...amazing! Love this!
