Time for another challenge ......

Happy Thursday ........

And a Happy New Year to all you STAMPlorations CAS challenge fans. It's time to get this years challenges underway.
As always the theme is Anything Goes ...... anything CAS that is, with an optional Colour Twist.
For January it's ........ SILVER or GRAY

I've gone for the SILVER option ..... with a little bit of heat embossing and some sparkly silver glitter card  ............ not the best combination to photograph though!

Very CAS ...... making the words the focal point.
Using Versamark ink I simply stamped one of the sayings from the STAMPlorations Power of Words stamp set, onto a piece of cardstock from my stash (previously coloured using Distress inks I think) and then heat embossed using a silver powder

This was then die cut into a circle along with a larger one cut from silver glitter card and then layered together using foam pads to add a touch of dimension

A few dots of glitter glue adds a little more interest to the design

Which colour twist will you choose?
Check out the STAMPlorations blog for all the challenge rules and details of the prizes up for grabs ..... you'll also find some fabulous inspiration on there too from the rest of the DT.

If you love the STAMPlorations range of products and you are inspired by any of my inspiration pieces, or you like any of the STAMPlorations products that I've used, then I have a little something for you.
