Always Being There .....




A clean and simple card from me today.  This meets the weekly challenge No. 275 over on the Less Is More Blog which asks us to make a CAS card using pastel colours. I started with a white 5 x 5 inch card blank and die-cut a slightly smaller matt using a square stitched edge die out of more white card.





Onto this I stamped two bears from Crafty Individuals using Memento black ink.  This was then selectively coloured with pastel alcohol ink markers.

I added a touch of Glossy Accents on the noses and eyes of the cute bears.  The matt was applied on the card front using foam pads for relief.




The sentiment (Inkadinkadoo) was stamped on more white card with Versafine black ink, trimmed and edged with ink before adhering onto the card as shown.

Craft Stamper Magazine has a Take It Make It Challenge in the theme of 'Anything Goes'  for May so this fits the bill.

Crafty Individuals also have a challenge for the Month whose title is 'Anything Goes' so this uses one of their cutest stamps as the focal point on this card.

Simples !!

    Sid did you know you have no reply blogger on your comments. That means people cant rely directly to any comments you leave, this is apparently a new thing that people need to fix themselves. Check it out by making a comment to yourself then click on to email reply.

  35. Absolutely adorable.
    Coloured so sweetly and I like the addition of the Glossy Accents. As for that border, you fooled me as I actually thought it was machine stitched.
    Thank you for joining the Crafty Individuals challenge.
    Good Luck Wishes
