CASology Challenge - Sports



Hi there ~ I haven't played along with the CASology Challenge lately, so when I saw their latest cue card I made sure I took the time to create a card.



Since I don't have any sports-related stamps, I went shopping in the Silhouette Store and found this cute little gymnast. I started with a stitched panel, then blended Tumbled Glass ink for the background. I used black textured cardstock for the image and gold embossing powder for the stars (so sorry for the glare).

Thanks so much for stopping by,






Supplies:
Stamps: MFT - More essential sentiments
Dies: Silhouette Store - Balance Beam Gymnast (#16477); MFT - Stitched Rectangle STAX
Ink: Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Tumbled Glass; Versafine - Onyx Black; Versamark
Misc: Altenew - Rose Gold Embossing Powder

Such a lovely soft halo of colour around this fabulous silhouette gymnast, Barb ... the plume of embossed stars is wonderfully magical and adds beautifully to the celebratory feel! Takes me back a few years!! Hugs, Anita :)

Barb, this rocks! I love watching gymnastics on tv. I did it for a bit as a kid - wasn't that great at it but I had fun. :) I love the soft blue in the background and the stars are such a gorgeous detail. Thanks for playing along with CASology this week!
