#CTC232 Artistic Expressions

Welcome to the new catalogue! This week the crew are CASEing from the Artistic Expressions section from pages 106-159

No photo description available.

I've chosen the shaker card on the bottom of page 114, and CASEd the layout:

I started off with a piece of Pool Party DSP, and worked out where the oval would be placed and traced it loosely with a pencil. I've sponged the lower half with Balmy Blue and the top left with So Saffron and a tiny bit of Pumpkin Pie. I've stamped the fisherman from Best Catch with Basic Gray, and used the same ink for the greeting from Perennial Birthday.

I used a piece of Basic Gray cardstock for my top layer and embossed it with the Subtle 3D EF before adhering to the stamped piece. I've used dimensionals to add all this to my base card.  I've stamped and die cut a fish hook (Catch of the Day dies) then coloured with Stampin' Blends and glued to the bottom corner. The fish are diecut from a scrap of Blushing Bride, sponged a little with Balmy Blue and then had the markings stamped with Basic Gray.

For my little fish I masked off some of the spots before inking. Fun bringing my love of cardmaking together with my husband's love of fishing, so off to his box of pretties for my photo.

If you would like to join the challenge this week, simply make your card and tell us which photo you've used from the pages listed above, take a photo and add it to our Facebook page using the link over to the right. Before you go, please continue on the hop by visiting Monique:

  2. What a great fisherman card! The embossed main panel looks great as does your colouring inside the frame, I assume it was sponged onto the card?
