Another Clean & Simple Card with Dreamweavers.

I decided that I enjoyed the Clean and Simple Challenge from Dreamweavers Stencils, so much that I decided to have at it again. This one, I admit…I am itching to do more to, though! HERE is the card I made last week. I felt that it was finished. It didn’t need anything more. I feel the same way about today’s card, however, I can see that it could have more. I may need to make a non-CAS version! You be the judge.

I adore this damask stencil! It’s so intricate and beautiful. Which, I suppose, doesn’t really work for CAS, but I really wanted to use it. I used my Dreamweavers stencil brush to apply Walnut Stain Distress Ink. I think it looks so pretty. I have a few ideas on how to change it up, so hopefully I’ll be able to share that with you soon.

I double stamped “cherish” from Heidi Swapp in Tattered Rose and Vintage photo Distress Ink. And (I couldn’t help myself) I used some Antique Linen to bring out the texture of the pretty pink (I know! I never, ever use baby pink!!! Crazy right?) cardstock from Prism. 3 small pearls…and that was…it. I stopped. And I do like it this way, but it’s not quite my style. When/if I re-do this I will distress the edges, probably emboss the sentiment, ink up the edges more…there’s a bit of a list. But, I stuck to the challenge as best I could. So what do you think??? Should I make a second version?
Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

I love the way you have the ink inconsistent in the depth of color. That makes it BETTER and even prettier. I would have been all worried about it being the same and lost that.

I always want to see more from you, but this is wonderful!
Alison...loving this CAS creation too! That stencil is one of my favorites and I love the "cherish" sentiment you've added.

Alison! So glad you played with us again! This is gorgeous CAS, but now I'm curious to see where you would take it next.

That's lovely. Great job doing a CAS card. They're insanely difficult for me.

The inking you did with the Damask Stencil is Lovely! And since my Retail Store is named "Cherish", this is my favorite card this week, tee hee. I'm having trouble with CAS this month, as I want to distress, and layer, and add one more thing...and, well, you know, so I would LOVE to see how you would redo this card, your description intrigues me!

Standing in the Clouds with ADfD

Hello! I have a new card with a lovely image from A Day for Daisies to share with you today. The digi is called Standing in the Clouds.

I colored this beauty with Zig Clean Color Markers and a water brush. Here's a close up.

My background was created with the Piasso Stencil from Dreamweaver (available from Stampendous), White VersaColor Ink (from Imagine), a sponge dauber, and Detail White Embossing Enamel. Then I sprayed the background with Sheer Shimmer Spritz in Frost. You'll see that better in the photo below. The entire background looks frosty. My sentiment is from the Soaring Sentiments set. I edged it and my card base with Bahama Blue and Danube Blue Memento Ink, which really matched her jacket perfectly.

See the pretty shimmer? I love the Sheer Shimmer Spritzes, and I encourage you to give them a try. I'll have another project for A Day for Daises soon, and our February challenge will be posted on Friday. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
