I made a CAS card, the image is an old one from Penny Black - Message from Above - stamped and heat embossed on Bristol Vellum paper then colored using distress inks diluted with water and a Zig Detailer brush. I used a clear Wink of Stella glitter brush on the flowers and bird for some sparkles.
The sentiment from the Penny Black set Friendship has also been heat embossed. You may notice the hedgehog is popped up with foam tape. This wasn't originally planned but I messed up coloring the hedgehog's face (a blue smudge somehow seemed to appear out of nowhere) and there was no way to save it. Since the rest of the card was almost finished I didn't want to start over again, instead heat embossed and colored the hedgehog again, then fussy cut.
I picked some papers from my stash that coordinated well with the way I colored the image, then tied some jute twine around the card and finished off with a bow.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope to see you joining in this week at Allsorts!
