I'm Being CASEd at Time Out!

Hey everyone!  It's an exciting April 2nd as I am being CASEd over at Time Out Challenges!  I was asked by the lovely, Sandie, if I would make a card for the team to CASE.  Of course, I said yes!  They are being sponsored by Clearly Besotted stamps this challenge so I used one of my new CB stamps to make my card.  You don't have to use CB stamps to play along but if you got 'em, why not use 'em?!  :-). Take a look...


So, I decided to try something new with this card.  I wanted to try colouring on black cardstock.  I stamped my flower (Clearly Besotted, Winter Blooms set) in white StazOn ink.  (You might wonder why I didn't embossed with white powder then colour.  In a previous experiment, I had discovered that doing this and then colouring with pencil crayons causes the embossing to chip off). Then, using pencil crayons, I coloured it in.  I added some white dots to the centers of the flowers with a gel pen.  I stamped my sentiment (Studio G) and embossed in white.  Lastly, I raised my panel up on foam dots and attached to the card base.  I like the colouring on the black paper but think I may try some chalk/pastel pencils next time to see if I can get the colours a bit brighter.

I hope you will all try to join in on the fun over at a Time Out and especially go check out the amazing projects the DT came up with.  They are all so talented.  :-)

I'd like to link up to the following challenges:

CAS-ology - cue word is Spring.  Nothing says Spring like flowers!

Thanks for visiting with me and I hope you all have a lovely day!
