Here's a CAS card I made using a fun lemon image from The Alley Way Stamps.

To create this look, I first sprayed water on a piece of white card stock. Then I stamped the image with water based inks (I used Memento and Distress inks). The combination of water based ink on top of wet card stock makes the ink bleed a bit. Then after the images dried, I stamped over them with black ink. Super easy technique, I love the results!

Hope you are having a great holiday weekend!

Paper Girls - Birthday Card

Charity's daughter turned 13 this week, so you get to choose from several challenge options at the Paper Girls this time. I chose "Birthday", and made this birthday card that features a castle stamp by The Alley Way Stamps. I'm so proud, because I actually colored it with AC Stamp Markers and managed to do a little shading!

I had a lot of fun blinging it up a bit with some glitter and sequins too. And the velvet trim was the perfect royal touch!

Hope you can play along with us this time! As always, there is a prize up for grabs!
