LIM #275 and Addicted to CAS

The challenge at Less is More this week is a color challenge to create a card using pastels and the challenge at Addicted to CAS is to use plaid on your card.  I've managed to get the cards made, took photographs, AND now I'm getting them posted before the challenge is over! YAY me!! 


So....here we go....


Very simple...almost one layer card.  I cut the slope with dies from SSS.  The sentiment is from Hero Arts, and the dragonflies are from PennyBlack.  I lightly inked a background for the dragonflies with some tumbled glass, stamped the dragonflies with memento ink and colored lightly with Copics. There's also a little shimmer on the dragonflies, but the camera didn't pick that up.  After I cut the slope at the bottom of the front of the card base, I added a piece of light pink card stock.


This card was also quick and easy.  I inked the area where I wanted to use the Tim Holtz distressed circles die.  After die cutting the card panel I added just a little more ink (tumbled glass). The butter is a two piece butterfly from Clearly Besotted.  I die cut the solid piece from a light pink card stock, and then cut the top from vellum and colored it on the back side with Copics.  The butterfly trail is tiny little bling.  The sentiment looks washed out, but it's really not.  I stamped it in a SSS fog ink.  Popped the completed panel on a white card base and rounded the bottom corners.


I decided to make a little plaid for my card for Addicted to CAS.  I masked off the top area of the card panel and stamped the plaid using pink, yellow, and blue inks from Hero Arts.  I added a small strip of pink card stock for a more finished look.  The sentiment is from PTI.  Added a couple of Darice clear sequins...and popped the card panel on a white card base.

Thank you for stopping by.  I appreciate all of your comments!
