Guesting at CAS-ual Fridays Stamps

Stamps: Rad (CAS-ual Fridays); Abstract Art (MFT)
Ink: Tangelo, Lady Bug, London Fog (Memento)
As part of my winners package from CAS-ual Fridays in March, I get to feature MY stuff on THE CAS-UAL FRIDAYS BLOG.  Me.  Where all the cool kids hang out.  How awesome is that?
I was sooooo excited when my parcel came through the post.  I had been planning this card ever since I chose the rad stamp set.  Still took me several attempts to get the inking right though.
I had an epiphany when it came to lining up the paint splatters on the 2 layers:
  • temporarily adhere the top to the bottom, mark where it goes
  • remove top & stamp splatters on bottom (not my bottom...)
  • temporarily adhere acetate to bottom layer
  • place top layer on acetate in previously marked position
  • line up stamps so they fit over existing images
  • stamp
  • remove top & acetate (clean & save for another time), permanently fix top to bottom

And now for my next card, a much simpler affair...
Stamps: Bold Wishes (CAS-ual Fridays)
Ink: Lime Green, Soft Pool (HA)
Other:square punch; Diamond Stickles (Ranger)
Yup, just the 2 inks.  The lime green is a new purchase from SSS, with the other part of my CFC prize.  The pale green is a second generation stamping of the lime green (& if I'm being really honest, I think I prefer it).  The bluey green is a happy accident of the 'whoops-I-didn't-clean-my-stamp-properly' kind.  A couple of simple spacer pieces helped to keep the squares even & true.

Thanks again to CAS-ual Fridays for the great prizes & for the fantastic challenges that they keep coming up with which allow us all to share in the fun.
