CAS-ual FRIDAYS - CFC 79





CFC79:  Create a CAS winter project featuring blue.

Card number two for this challenge.  I knew that I wouldn't stop at just one entry!

This is absolutely my favorite stamp. The softly curving swirls create infinite movement within the image, shifting from one swirl to the next, to the next, to the next....

I used the same stamp on a black card base in an earlier post. Loved the stark contrast of the b/w combo.  The blue base, however, changes the tone of the card and seems to speak "winter".

I embossed the image using SU White embossing powder. The deep blue paper reflects in the embossed image, casting a silverish sheen on the image.  Hmmm... is silverish a real word?

The challenge will remain open for two weeks so that the good folks at CASual Fridays can take a bit of a break and spend time enjoying Thanksgiving with their families and friends.

Happy Thanksgiving to all my US neighbors!

  7. Loved it on black, love it on blue. My next attempt would be Egyptian Gold ep on gold, if I were you - it will be dazzling! (and I don't think you'll even need to add any bling!)
