CAS Colour & Sketch Challenge #222

I was looking for some ideas to make a quick and simple birthday card. Voila! I cam upon the Clean and Simple (CAS) Colour & Sketch Challenge #222. I just received this Penny Black Stamp and decided to see how I could combine the stamp design and challenge.

CAS Sketch Challenge #222, Penny Black stamps; Memory Box; Spectrum Noir

Penny Black Stamp: Collage of Wishes 40-385

Memory Box Distressed Windham Collage Die 30041

VersaMark ink

The Ton embossing powder in Rose Gold

Ranger Archival Ink in black

Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pens: Peony, Red Berry, Holly Leaf; Moonlight

Tombow Markers: blue, orange

Kraft Card Stock (stamped image)

Mirricard Card Stock in Copper (A2 card base) and Blue (die cut panel)

Detail Cutting Scissors

Stamp the image with VersaMark on kraft card stock; heat emboss with Rose Gold embossing powder. Color the floral mage with the Red Berry Sparkle pen; color the butterfly with Tombow markers and then lightly go over the top of it with the Red Berry Sparkle pen. Color the borders of the stamped image with the Peony Sparkle pen. Color the background around the flowers with the Moonlight Sparkle pen. Using archival ink, stamp the sentiment that comes with the floral image.

Heat set. Fussy cut around the stamped image.

Use the textured collage die on blue Mirricard card stock cut to 2-5/8" wide and 4" long. Adhere the the die cut to the A2 card base with 1/8" and 1/4" double-sided adhesive; adhere the stamped image to overlap the die cut.

Clean and Simple (CAS) can be a quick card-making style. Thanks for stopping in. Go to this link and enter your own "CAS Sketch Challenge" . . .
