Good evening peeps, a new month means a another new challenge. This time I'm up with a post for the CAS challenge at Happy Little Stampers. Here's my card:-
For my take on the theme I went with a masculine interpretation using this Fizzy Moon stamp and a sentiment from Picket Fence.
I stamped the bear and his pint onto a scrap of Copic friendly card, I really must get out and buy some more, coloured him with Copic markers, then fussy cut him out. Still on a mission to use up my odds and ends, I found a circle of white card, a scrap of brown card and a kraft card base that had been stamped and embossed previously but not to my satisfaction. The positioning of the previous stamping dictated where to put my image.
I first adhered the bear to the white panel with pads, then added a die cut brown frame, edging the whole lot with a matching ink pad so that no white showed around the edges and popped it up again on pads. My sentiment was stamped on a scrap of white and trimmed to size. I have a thing about sentences having a capital letter at the beginning, must be the teacher in me, so this sentiment irked me somewhat. So a bit of judicious masking enabled me to stamp the majority of the sentiment and I added a capital 'I' freehand. After I took a photo, I also noticed that the second line needed one too, so I changed the full stop to a comma with the flick of a black fine liner, it looks much better now! This was also added on pads.
So where will the cue card take you, we'd love to see but please remember to keep your card CAS!
