A new challenge

I saw Lady LIM's blog tonight and she had entered a brand new CAS challenge - CASual Fridays (http://cas-ualfridays.blogspot.com/2011/05/cas-ual-fridays-challenge-cfc1.html) - a CAS challenge that isn't LIM - is that allowed?  Well I decided to have a play, but now I've done it, it does feel slightly like I'm cheating on LIM......


Anyhow - the challenge is to have text prominent on your card in some way.  I have this gorgeous Reflections paper pad in A4 size from Prima and lots of the papers have text on them.  I decided to use a stamp that also had text on it as well so opted for this thistle from crafty individuals which I inked up with my favourite - mix the inks on the stamp technique as you never can tell what you will get.  I used peeled paint and broken china distress inks and momento tuxedo black.  I finished it off with a tiny butterfly cut from the prima paper.

I may play on Fridays too but I will always be a LIMette at heart......  

....see you in the morning LIMettes :-)

  4. What a beautiful entry! So glad you dropped by The Break Room at CAS-ual Fridays! As I mentioned to Chrissie, my husband is from Manchester & my bestie lives in Cheshire, so it's always fun to have the UK represented in both my challenges! So glad you could play with us!
