CAS with one color...


I have many friends, luckily, but one is going through a very rough time right now and I want to send her this card so she knows how "fabulous, amazing, terrific, awesome and fantastic" she is!
The base card is water color paper as well as the main piece.
On the main piece I stamped the verse from CAS-ual Fridays "truth is" set and the flower from their "mon ami" set using Versamark ink and black embossing powder.
Before coloring the image I heat set the embossing powder then water colored the flower with Distress worn lipstick marker and a water color brush.
I glued it to the base card and it was finished.


Okay, so I'm not anywhere near 30 but someone is and this is their card.
The card is white card stock.
Using the Tim Holtz "mini numeric" stamps (you could make any number from these) I dabbed Distress inks to the numbers then spritzed it before applying to the front of the card.
The verse (unknown company) is stamped using StazOn jet black ink.
Happy 30th to ...

When it takes three sets and a pen to make a card...

The base card is white card stock.
The next layer is Lawn Fawn's red with white hearts and a circle die cut from it.
The little girl (MFT Stamps "i heart you") is stamped on another piece of white card stock using StazOn jet black ink.
The "love" is from MFT's "love is in the air" set and a partial inking of a longer stamp.
The "happy birthday" is from MFT's "perfect harmony" set, again partial inking of a longer stamp.
The "2" I hand drew in with a Micron 05 black pen.
I colored her using GUANGHUI oil pencils, trimmed her out and glue dotted her to the front of the card.

Hope you aren't getting tired of the Autumn cards...

I got this set from Verve Stamps a while ago and never used it, but since I'm on this Autumn kick I thought it fit well for this challenge.
The card is kraft card stock, on which I stamped the verse and acorn from Verve Stamps "tall oaks" set using StazOn timber brown ink.
The coloring was done with Faber-Castell polychromos.

Still thinking of Autumn...

Autumn music playing and dark and rainy out..perfect day for stamping and thinking of Autumn.
The base card is black card stock and the main piece is water color 
I sponged the antique linen and fossilized amber Distress ink to the main piece.
After cutting out a leaf from craft foam using my Tim Holtz Sizzix Tattered Leaves die, I used it as a stamp with fossilized amber, seedless preserves and wild honey Distress Oxide inks.
The next step was to spritz the piece and blot it with a paper towel.
Next I stamped the dots (small circles cut from craft foam) and the word (Tim Holtz type lower foam stamps) using black soot Distress Oxide ink.
To finish I inked up the leaf again, stamped off on scrap paper then spritzed it before stamping on the main piece several times.
I distressed the edge and applied it to the base card.
