I used the colours from Colour Me! - CMCC#26 and from CAS - Colours & Sketches - CASC&S#80 we have to make a shaped card - not square or rectangular. I decided to use my Spellbinders Labels 10 dies as I knew I had some fabulous stamps from Waltzingmouse that coordinated perfectly.
First I cut the card base into shape using the largest die; I let the die overhang the top so that there is a join (You can see the fold on the photo of the card's inside). Next I used the same die to cut a panel of designer paper and adhered it to the card base. I inked up the frame first with Versamark and then Chocolate Chip so that I was able to emboss the image with clear powder, then I cut it out with the matching die. I used my SU marker to add a touch of turquoise around the edge of the frame and then attached it to the card. I did stamp the sentiment directly into the frame, but sadly got finger smudge marks on it, so I had to die cut a circle and stamp the sentiment again. I added some yellow to the edge to make it stand out. On the inside I simple cut a mat of design paper and on the white card stamped a dotty border.
I realised after I'd finished the card that it is not as clean and simple as the CAS - Colour & Sketch team might want! Sorry ladies!!! The inside is perfectly CAS :))) And that's all from me today. I plan to spend the rest of the day editing photos. Last night Jonathan, Kathryn and I went to a photo shoot at Birdsong Photography. We took photos of two of our favourite models - Jasmine and Onikaa - both beautiful women and both totally mad! It was such fun!! Bye for now.
