ATCAS #49

Firstly, welcome and Happy World Card Making Day everyone.

Over at Addicted to CAS we have a brand new challenge and I am your hostess for this challenge. Due to a family emergency (and me not being very organised at the moment), I made this card earlier today in about 10 minutes flat. I didn't think I was going to make something in time but all the stars aligned and I was lucky enough to produce something that I was happy with.

Here is the code word -


Stencils are something I have only really just added to my stash. I first bought some from Shery over at STAMPlorations. Then I only bought my first Distress Inks not long ago, either. I know, I know I am a BIT slow. Anyway, stencils really weren't something that I thought I would really go for but then I found texture paste and all those goodies so the stencils were a must have ;)

Here is my DT card -


Firstly I cut my panel to the size I wanted and used painters tape to adhere my stencil (Faded Dots) so it wouldn't move while adding the ink. I blended Broken China, Salty Ocean and Faded Jeans for an ombre feel. 

The stars are Lil' Inker Dies (omg, I love this company and have a new order on the way which I can't wait for). 

The sentiment is from STAMPlorations and from the Sentiment Builders: Celebrate set.

I matted the whole panel onto black cardstock. I only wanted a very thin border of black so it didn't take away from the main panel. 

We also have the pleasure of a brand new guest designer joining us for the month of October - Hannelie from Desert Diva. Don't forget to pop on over and say hi.


I would like to enter my card into the following challenges -




Thanks so much for looking xx
