CASology: Week 182 ADORE Challenge

I have been trying to keep busy since I injured my ankle and I'm looked in the franken boot. UGH! So, what better way than to craft. It keeps me from going stir crazy. I have not played in many challenges in the first month of this year, but I'm ready to get back to it. 

This little guy is so adorable and I thought he was perfect for the ADORE challenge over at CASology. The card base is 80lb white CS the background is watercolor paper that has been distress inked with festive berry, spiced marmalade and mustard seed. I used my distress sprayer to add some splotches and splattered it with mustard seed and festive berry using a paint brush. 

The Image is from Whiff of Joy "Henry with a Heart" he is copic colored and then fussy cut. I mounted him with 3M foam mounting tape to give a bit of dimension. The sentiment is card stock that has been distress inked with the same colors as the back ground and them cut out with a set of Quickutz word dies. I used several layers of the word dies to also give a bit of dimension. The heart and sentiment was then colored over with a little Wink of Stella to give a bit of shimmer. 

Hope you like the little guy, I know I sure do. Also, go see some of the other great cards at CASology. 

Enjoy and Happy Crafting!!!!

CAS On Sunday Challenge # 75 Paper Piecing

Good Sunday to you all and what a beautiful day it is here in Texas, sunny and warm. It s a nice break from the cooler weather, but all good things must end and it is about to cool off here starting tonight. The pretty weather made me think about all things out doors. So, I thought I would break out my new Skater Kids set I just got from Simon Says Stamp and play along with the Paper Piecing challenge at CAS On Sunday.

The card is 4 1/4 X 5 the base is made from 80 lb. white card stock. The back ground is a combo of PP from The Paper Studio, Raven CS from Bazzill and a watercolor paper that I used distress ink on the colors are festive berry, spiced marmalade and mustard seed. the bottom was die cut with a paper smooches edge die.

I embellished the card with various Washi tapes, sequins and enable dots. The little skater dog is stamped with momento black tuxedo ink and colored in with copic makers and his pants and shirt are paper pieced from solid red CS that I stamped and the shirt too. The sentiment is also part of the Skater Kids stamps set. The dog and his board were fussy cut.

Hope you enjoyed todays creation as much as I did making it.

Enjoy and Happy Crafting!!!!
