CTS#94 and AAA#20



Hi everyone!



I'm combining two challenges today.  Firstly the sketch over at the CAS(E) this Sketch Blog and then I will also be linking to the AAA Cards Challenge Blog where the game for the week is fussy cutting.




 
 
 
 
 
It's raining outside and there's no chance that it will stop soon, so I had to take my photo inside.
This is my card:
 
 


I've started by taping some washi tape strips onto my card base.  I then stamped with a bg stamp by Glitz, not using an acrylic block, for the desired effect.  I then sponged over it with Bundled Sage Distress Ink and put some Clear 3D Gloss onto my stamped and sponged strips.  I then removed the washi tape strips and let it dry.
I've added the 'Fancy Flourish' by MFT.
The scroll stamp and die are from Verve.
The small leaf stamp is from a local craft shop, Great Impressions.  I've stamped the leaves, coloured them with coloured pencils and given it some shine with the Clear 3D Gloss.  I fussy cut them and added to the card front.
Afrikaans sentiment saying: 'Just for You'.
Some black plastic dots round it off.



This is the first of two cards that I've made for the CTS challenge.  Will be back shortly to post the other one.


Thanks for stopping by!!

Keep well!!
Kind regards
Petra
