I have not been around for ages. This is my latest card which I hope will qualify for the ATCAS Challenge 'Gold'.
There is not a lot of the 'shiny stuff' but hopefully the gold ink and the pearl will make up for that!
Supplies: Clearly Besotted 'Leafy Accents' and 'Fancy Florals' stamps and dies.
Die-namics 'Circle Stax Set 2' and Memory Box 'Parker Numbers'
Simon Says Stamp 'Happy' die.
I die-cut the leaf and stamped it in Hero Arts Shadow Ink 'Field Greens' and then used Color Box pigment ink 'Canary' for the flowers.
I lightly flicked a piece of white card with green Distress Ink and then cut out the circles.
'Happy' was built up with three separate dies which I glued together and then inked with a few layers of Hero Arts Shadow Ink 'Butter-Bar'.
Tried to be as subtle as possible with the '50' - another big milestone for someone who wanted it to pass un-noticed!
All for now.
Thank you so much for visiting.

There was a lot of sponging involved in this card using some new Hero Arts inks that I had
for Christmas. A very simple technique using a torn piece of scrap paper.
This stamp set from Clearly Besotted Stamps is so useful. Stephanie has released yet another wonderful set of stamps this month - you could always pop over there and have a look!
Well I have to be quick this morning. I have got a Pilates class to get to - I can really recommend it!
Thanks so much for visiting.
Supplies: Clarity Stamp - Little Boy Fishing
Sentiment: Clarity Stamp
The background to this was a bit of an experiment. I smeared a small perspex stamping block with Distress Ink (Tumbled Glass) sprayed it very lightly with water and then randomly dabbed over a piece of white card. When this was dry I repeated this process with Distress Ink (Tattered Rose).
I then stamped the little boy fishing and the sentiment with a dark blue ink. To finish off I added some sequins and mounted it on to a piece of blue card stock.
Perhaps I should point out that the sentiment does show up better in real life!
Well, that is all for now.
Thank you so much for stopping by.

This is perhaps too CAS - I will leave you to judge! This stamp set is so versatile with the different shaped hearts.
After I had finished the card I realised that it did not have to be a one layer card.
This has meant I made it more difficult for myself than it needed to be.
