I created this card for yesterday’s Featured stamper Challenge on Splitcoast. Saturday my latest order of Flourishes stamps, the new release, arrived and I couldn’t wait to try them out. So I picked this card from Mary Beth. It is a CAS card, and I usually have a hard time with them. Casing a card helps, but still I had to add a bit of patterned paper, just a few pearls and some ribbon.

I stamped an image from Flourishes Spring has Sprung in Tuxedo Black Memento ink on Neenah Solar White cardstock, cut and embossed it with a Label 13 Nestabilities die and colored it with Copic Markers (BG000, BG01, BG72, Y21, Y38, G21, G24, G28).

Cloud masks cut with the Cloud Die-namics die out of Tim Holtz Mask Sheets were adhered over the image and it was airbrushed with Copic Marker B12.  I took the masks and carefully airbrushed a bit more with the brush side of Copic B12 to add a few speckles. The image was adhered to a piece of Celery cardstock that was hand cut to a slightly bigger layer. The edges of the paper were colored with Copic Marker G24 to match the image. Both layers were adhered to a piece of black cardstock, cut and embossed with the next size label12 die.

The card base is a 4 1/4″ x 9″ piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock folded half. The lower corners were rounded with a decorative corner chomper, to match the edges of the Label die. A 2 1/2″ x 4 1/4″ strip of October Afternoon Modern Homemaker paper was adhered to the card base and White Organza ribbon was tied around it.

The image was adhered to the card with dimensionals. Silver Recollection Pearls on the top left of the card finish off the card.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day.
Hugs and smiles
