Over at CAS-ual Friday, the challenge this week is to use dies/punches on your CAS card. I needed a sympathy card and as I was looking for something simple but thoughtful I decided to use the challenge as my jumping off point.
I used a Spellbinders circle die to cut a mask. I then blended some Squeezed Lemonade distress in onto the card. I used a technique I saw Vicky over at Lily Pad cards use.... to go round the die shape with the pen, in this case round the mask. Before removing the mask I stamped the flowers from Stampin'Up in HA Cup'o'joe ink. The Hero Arts sentiment is also stamped in this ink. Punched some butterflies to add a finishing touch.
I also am entering this into Play Date Cafe challenge
I'm not sure if my brown ink counts.... but my faux stitching is black and the card is off white.
The weekend is here... so I'm a happy camper. Wishing you a happy weekend too.
