Allsorts Challenge 524/525: Feminine

Hello and welcome! Today's card was made for our new theme at Allsorts challenge. Lynn's turn to host and she picked the theme of "Feminine". We're still running on a 2 week schedule so there is plenty of time for you to join us for your chance to win! Our prize this week comes from Swedish House Crafts.


I made a tall card (approx. 4.5 x 6.75 inchs) for the challenge and kept it mainly CAS, although my first thought was to stamp the image again, color and fussy cut. But once I had the image stamped onto my inked card stock I actually liked the CAS look of just the black white and pink and decided to leave it this way.

To get a perfect rectangle I used painter's tape around the edges, inked with SpunSugar and Worn Lipstick distress inks, then used a brick stencil to add the brick design. After removing the painters tape I stamped the image and sentiment from the 2 piece Penny Black set Birthday Balloons with Versafine Clair Nocturne ink using my Tonic Stamp Platform. I framed the card onto a white 110 lb card base and finsished it by adding sticky rhinestones. 







I'm playing along with these challenges:
Simon Says Wednesday - CAS // Double D Challenges - Rhinestones // TIME OUT Challenges  - Fashionable // CAS on Friday - Use a Stencil // Penny Black Saturday Challenge - Anything Goes //

  1. Really like the clean and simple approach to this card Ellie, the colours of the stencilling let the image stand out and must say I've never noticed this PB stamp before but might so searching.
