CFC90 - Horsey Thanks!


This is a quick post for this week's CASual Fridays challenge:


And a quick reminder about this week's CASology cue card - flame (this could qualify - I certainly hope you'll be playing along if you haven't already!)

This is another card for my sister's dressage trainer - I'm up to about 40 cards and just about ready to send them out to her.

This was a fun technique that just evolved as I was playing around with the Muse challenge (I ended up going in a different direction for that card). I stamped a large circle in Daffodil Delight, then a smaller one in Summer Sun and then finally an even smaller one in More Mustard. Once it was all dry, I stamped the (unknown) horse and sentiment in Onyx and embossed with clear powder.

I liked it so much that I also made this one, with the same technique, although it does not qualify for this challenge:


Tomorrow I'll be back with this week's CAS(E) This Sketch card at 10:00 - see you then!

Most impressive. I love the multiple one.

These are both amazing! Such a clever idea to layer the inks like that and I love that horse image. Serious coolness.

That circle within circle layered stamping is sooo cool ... both completely splendid! I particularly love all that white space on the first and the vibrant colours on the second! Anita :)

Love it. So simple and clean looking. My favourite though is the multiple one.

What a wonderful idea!
bye, Alex

Absolutely stunning, Ardyth! This technique looks so striking but still simple - the best kind ;) I love the yellow on its own, but have a soft spot for the multicoloured one for sure!

Lynn said...

Wow! Both cards are beautiful, but I love the spectrum of colors on the second one. Thanks so much for playing with us at CAS-ual Fridays!

Kristie Goulet said...

Love both of your cards. Fun technique!!!

Fiona said...

Superb cards Ardyth, very striking.

Happy Dance said...

I always look forward to seeing the horse cards you create. This is so gorgeous (well, they both are!), and the circles of color are perfect behind the image. Another amazing card. Love it. Bev

Stunning! Awesome idea! I love the card with the four different colors.

I'm glad you metioned that the first card would qualify for this week's CASology challenge (I'm assuming color). I have been sooooo literally hung up on "flame" and coming up blank...this might help!

Crisp and beautiful!

Both cards are beautiful, Ardyth!! LOVE the bold use of color and the simplicity using the image and sentiment! The four colored one is just wonderful x 4:)!! So happy to have you in the challenges each week at CAS-ual Fridays:)!!

Wow, this is so stunning!

Kelly Griglione said...

Hmmm, this could be a really fun technique to play around with, especially to enforce your focal point. Great idea, Ardyth! I hope you'll do more with this concept.

BTW, with all the square cards you make, I've been wondering if Canada has the same premium on mailing them (vs. the rectangle ones?) If so, do you mail them in a rectangular envelope, or just pay the extra postage?

Love the ombre color circles behind the horses! Very pretty!
