Come fly with me

Happy Sunday everyone!

It’s time for a new challenge over at AAA Cards and this fortnight we want to see moonlight in your CAS creations. Uniko is our sponsor.

Last year, the talented Vicky Papaioannou demonstrated the super-cool ‘glowing moon’ technique and it quickly became one of my favourite techniques for this season.

However, I must confess it took me a few attempts and colour combos before I created a background I was happy with this week! In the end, I used purple regular distress inks, together with a little Antique Linen to create that glow. The witch stamp is by Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous.

And then I tore my card when I was removing the masking tape! Argh!! I certainly wasn’t going to abandon this little scene so I added a raised black frame. The sentiment is from an older set by Krumspring stamps.

My teammates have shared some gorgeous CAS cards on the AAA Cards blog and we are also joined by one of my favourite CAS card makers, the talented Trina from Phamtastic Design as our Guest Designer. She’s a regular player in our challenges – she has some beautiful CAS creations and is a kind-hearted and encouraging member of our community. You must pay her a visit!

Thanks for stopping by – I do hope you play along with us!

  1. Beautiful glow technique, Lucie! The purple suits your enchanting witch. The black border is a brilliant save after the masking paper mishap (hate it when that happens too). xx
    And thank you for the sweet shout out, too! 💙

  2. Lucie, your card is so lovely that i am ready to fly away with your witch. The colors you chose not only highlight the moon and its glow but also add a certain magical touch. Antique Linen did the magic i guess. I can’t believe you had such a mishap while creating this one. everything looks so perfect at the end. mark of a talented crad maker , indeed!. happy crafting, hugs – bharati
