Back to the studio…

Today's project is for the CAS -ual Fridays (Clean and Simple) blog challenge.  The challenge is to make a CAS card in shades of grey.  I used Distress Ink Pumice Stone for the background - used a torn piece of scrap paper to mask off the sides to create the tattered window effect.  Then I stamped the Tim Holtz images Umbrella Man and the movie reel along with a pensive sentiment in Stone Grey Stazon Ink.  Finally I matted it also in shades of grey.  Umbrella Man is my absolute favorite image by Tim! www.cas-ualfridays.blogspot.com

Paper Smooches Sparks-a third entry!!

So I was yet again inspired to test out my creativity for another entry into the Paper Smooches anything goes challenge.  This time using the Sugar Rush stamp set with a colorful rainbow theme!  The background was done using Tim Holtz Distress markers on watercolor paper and then spritzed with water to create the rainbow watercolor background.  Used a bubbled embossing folder to create some texture. Stamped the lollipops and colored them with distress inks and used distress stickles to create some sparkle! I used the sentiment "hey sugar" from the stamp set with a piece of red polka dot  ribbon under creating a banner effect! www.papersmoochesstamps.com
