CASology Week #27 & CAS-ual Fridays CFC86

Hi guys

Well here I am with my next attempt at blog challenges. 

I'm entering the following card into the following two challenges:

This challenge is to make a card using a Blue theme
This challenge is to make a CAS card with one long and one short side.
I've always enjoyed using tall cards but on this occasion I decided to use it with a landscape orientation rather than portrait. 

I started by ripping a plain piece of paper and laying this over the white card base.  I then used cotton wool to swirl on some chalk to create the blue background.  Next I stamped the large flower and heat embossed with clear embossing power.  I then made a mask over this image and stamped the leaves so that they appeared to be behind the flower.  This was also then heat embossed.  I then created the sentiment, butterfly and small flower in the same way.  I then finished with a few glazed gems.

I've not used this chalking technique or heat embosssing for a while so thought I'd give it another go and I'm quite happy with the finished result.  Apologies again for the dark photos, although its daylight I still needed the light on!

Materials used:
  • Chalk: Decorating Chalks by Craf-T Products
  • Stamps: Hero Arts - Share Laughter stamp set
  • Ink: Versacolor - Sky Blue, Baby Blue, Royal Blue, Turquoise
  • Embossing Powder: Rubber Stampede - Clear
  • Gems: Papermania - Glazed Gems (Iridescent)

Thanks for visiting me today.
