Hello CAS fans ..... We're Back!!!!

Happy Thursday ......

And welcome to the STAMPlorations CAS Card challenge.  Have you missed us?
Well .... we're back after our summer break ...... all refreshed and raring to go.  Are you ready to create those CAS designs?

Rules are the same as before ..... it's Anything Goes (CAS that is) and as always there's an optional colour twist.  For the month of October that colour is ..... ORANGE

Not a colour I tend to use except at this time of year ..... orange works so well with all those autumnal shades.

For my inspiration piece for you today I've used a technique I came across from the lovely Jennifer McGuire ...... split colouring.
This is a great little technique because you can create two cards at the same time by mixing and matching the pieces

Using my MISTI I stamped the gorgeous STAMPlorations Blossom Spray #2 first onto a piece of orange cardstock using Versamark ink and heat embossed the image with a clear powder.
I then stamped the image again, this time onto a piece of white card with black Versafine ink and heat embossed in the clear again.
Using the MISTI to do the stamping means that I get the image in the exact same position on both pieces of cardstock ...... so that when I chop them down the stamped images match up perfectly ....

I coloured the flowers using ZIG Markers and a water brush to blend the colours

I then cut both pieces of card in the same place and pieced together the top part of the white card with the bottom of the coloured.
A simple strip of black and white card hides the join and gives a neat finish.

A simple sentiment and a few splatters of ink across the background and we're done!

So .... will you use the colour twist, or not? 
The challenge linky will remain open until the end of the month, and you can enter up to three times.  You don't have to use STAMPlorations products to enter ... although it's great if you do! And you can find full details of the challenge ..... the rules, prizes etc., if you click HERE

It is nice to be back!

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

Cheerio until next time ....
