A little reminder for the STAMPlorations CAS card challenge ......

Happy Thursday ......

It's time for a quick reminder about this months CAS Card challenge over at STAMPlorations.  As always Anything Goes ..... CAS (Clean and Simple) that is, with the Optional Colour Twist of Magenta for the month of May .......

You don't have to use the colour twist .... you don't have to use STAMPlorations products, but it would be fabulous if you did!

I've gone for both .......

I've used the STAMPlorations stamp set City Girl from the Bees Knees collection
I simply stamped the lady onto a piece of white card, uisng black Versafine ink.  I added colour to her coat using the Adirondak ink Soft Plum, and then I fussy cut around her.

I added a touch of black to her hair, and the belt on her jacket and then gave the belt and her sunglasses a thin coat of Glossy Accents to give a touch of shine.

For the background I used the acetate technique for smooshing the ink onto my card ...... I applied some ink onto a craft sheet, spritz with water then used a piece of acetate to pick up some of the ink. I then dabbed the acetate onto a piece of white card applying the ink randomly to create my background.

Once this was dry I used another of the stamps from the City Girl set to add some extra detail to the background, and embossed with a white detail embossing powder

I then attached the lady onto my card using foam pads to add dimension .....

and finished everything off with a sentiment, again from the same stamp set

More smooshing and another fab stamp from the City Girl set inside

Have you entered the challenge yet ..... there's still plenty of time.  Pop over to the STAMPlorations CAS challenge blog for more inspiration from the Design Team and full details on how to enter .... Happy stamping!

Thanks for popping by .... enjoy the rest of your day.

Cheerio until next time
