Addicted to CAS Challenge #144 - Apples


Hi all...it’s time for a new challenge at Addicted to CAS. Our Hostess is Anja and she has chosen the Code Word 'Apples'.
Our Guest Designer is the super talented Ksenija, who has created a beautiful card to inspire everyone!
Our Sponsor is Happy Little Stampers and as always, Kylie is offering the winner a generous $20. GC to the store!


For my card, I used the SSS set called 'You're So Sweet' ~


For a change, I decided to create a square card...I masked the first apple, then stamped the other before coloring them with Copic markers. I then coated the base of each apple with Nuvo Crystal Glaze to give them a high buffed shine! I also added clear EP to the sentiment. Lastly, I added splatters with gold watercolor.


Ok, now we would love to see how the code word Apples inspires you! If you would like to see inspiration from the Design Team and play along with us, visit the ATCAS Blog HERE ~

Thanks so much for stopping by,






Supplies:
Stamps: SSS - You're So Sweet
Dies: MFT - Inside/Out Stitched Squares
Misc: Copic Markers; Versafine Ink; Ranger Super Fine Clear EP; Nuso Crystal Glaze; Gansai Tambi Starry Colors

This is a great card, Barb. Love your masked, shiny and wonderfully colored apples. The square shpe is right for your wonderful CAS design. Love that bit of white on the tops.
