Happiness is ...


I've really been bitten by the CAS bug, and made a couple more yesterday.

For this one I decided to make the sentiment the focus of the card to fall in with theme of Allsorts #90. I then balanced it with a sponged moon/sun/whatever inked through a circle mask using blue and lilac pigment inks, and a stamped slightly-oriental-looking flower in the opposite corner. Quite difficulat to get a good picture of this one for some reason ... couldn't get the colours quite true and the flower looks a bit faded ... but never mind!

Recipe:

Sentiment: Penny Black "the journey" (3177F);
Image: transparent Butterfly Kisses set, inked with Brilliance pearlescent ink;
Supplies: lilac sparkly gems by Papermania.

Challenges:

Allsorts #90 - It's All About the Sentiment
Wee Memories #43 - Live ... Laugh ... Love
Secret Crafter #121 - Stamped Flower
Incy Wincy #81 - Colour Me Wonderful
(2 colouring media - mine were Colorbox Queue pigment inks for the moon, Brilliance ink for the flower).

Back tomorrow with another "less is more" card for the Less Is More challenge :-)
