It’s time for a new challenge at AAA Cards! This fortnight we’d like you to create a CAS card with just one image; our optional twist is ‘inspired by TV. Our sponsor is Cas-ual Fridays.
The twist was a bit of a challenge for me as I don’t watch many TV shows. I do try to watch Gardeners’ World, so I pulled out an old Hero Arts silhouette stamp and got to work. I stamped the image in black ink and then embossed it with clear embossing powder. Taking inspiration from this fun card by Jenn Shurkus, I splattered some coloured ink across the background. I used watered-down Distress crayon rather than distress inks or sprays – I think the colour was more vibrant as a result.
The sentiment is by Clearly Besotted.
My team mates have come up with some beautiful cards which are on the AAA Cards challenge blog. We are also joined a previous challenge winner, Jasleen, who has some lovely cards on her blog!
Hope you can play along with us!
Thanks for stopping by!
That’s beautiful. I love the image and the background looks gorgeous.
Great card, love the stamped silhouette and Gardener’s world, esp when Chris Beardshaw was in it…swoon 😉
Thought it must be a gardening show that inspired this card. I always enjoy makeover type shows, but you wouldn’t think so if you saw my garden!
I just love the colorful background to the silhouette. A lovely card for sure.
This is beautiful. The die is so intricate!
So beautiful, I love the background.
