While I dream of my Banketstaaf, I leave you with this card which reminds me of a gingerbread house... oh yum...again! And in case it isn't immediately obvious, I'm attempting a CAS card. My friend Sandie and I decided to challenge ourselves: she "unCASes" me while I "CAS" her... or is it the other way around: she "CASes" me while I "unCAS" her? Oh bother... And in that nebulous fog, I offer thee my CAS effort.
|CAS point 1: no patterned papers. CAS point 2: no fancy die-cutting and layering. So far so good, Sandie?|
|And CAS continues its downward spiral: Embossing: hot for the sentiment and dry for the snowflake background. Some silver mirri stars for festive pizzaz!|
|CAS hits rock bottom: stitching. I'm addicted. Nothing looks right without it!|
|The shame continues inside: more embossing, lashings of Crystal Stickles, layering and stitching. |
Sorry Sandie, I tried.
Stamp: WMS "A Cottage Christmas"
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Versamark, Stampendous Fine White EP
Colours: Spectrum Noir and Promarker alcohol markers. (details to follow)
I'm using the sketch from Waltzing Mouse Challenge #117, which I turned on its head, with a fair bit of artistic licence. Colours and thoughts of festive sweet came from Christmas Stampin' All Year Long#30: "Photo Inspiration" and for sugar frosting - Jingle Bell: "Dashing Through the Snow". As always, you'l find my card over at MIM #109.
Thanks for visiting. I'll update the long list of alcohol markers later, but now we've off to church. Have a blessed Sunday y'all and we'll catch up soon. And Sandie.... can't wait to see what you come up with!
