CAS on Sunday

As much as I love making elaborate cards, my favourite has to be the Clean and Simple Style. Over at Addicted to CAS the theme is HOME.

I created this card using a PaperArtsy set of stamps, stamping the image onto different coloured papers before paper piecing the image. To frame the card I used a thin black liner pen to doodle!

Quick, Clean and Simple!

I am also entering the following challenges with this card :
Oh La La - CAS

Snow and Ice

Unfortunately, or some may say fortunately here in the South of England we have had no snow (sad face) this year.

However to indulge my love of the cold weather I decided to make a card using the
Aurora Wings Digital stamp - the Ice Queen.

I wanted a mixed media type feel so once I had printed it onto card I used spray inks in a shimmering blue. I then coloured the image using Promarkers and added glitter glue to highlight areas. The sequins, beads,shaved ice and glitter I added at the end to give the suggestion of falling ice.

I am quite pleased with the finished result.

I am entering this into the following challenges:
Simply Papercraft - Anything Goes
Dream Factory - The Ice Queen
