FS284 - StampinAK/ LIM 76 - 3





For this week's Featured Stamper challenge, I was inspired by this card that Cynthia made:


It's so lovely and serene. But I decided to go with a completely different feel. My friend asked me to make her some 'job well done' cards, so this is the first. I loved the idea of the 3 brush strokes and the drama of the stark black image. My 'brush strokes' were done with copics, the sentiment is from Michael's and the stars (I think) from an old Verve set.

Since I used 3 'brush strokes' and 3 stars, I'll link this one up to this week's Less is More challenge, to use 3 of something, on a one-layer card.

Are you ready for the next CASology challenge? It will be posted on CASology on Tuesday morning, 9 am CST (8 am here in Toronto). I know the whole Design Team will be so happy if you drop by!

Holy Cats! In my other life (Before MASKerade) I wouldn't have dreamed of using neon colors on ANYTHING. Now here I am, placing an order for neon ink and resurrecting the neon Sharpies I never thought I would use.

This card ROCKS, Ardyth, But then I've yet to see one of yours that doesn't.

Rock On!
