Celebrate


The theme this week at Less is More.  It is their 300th challenge and that is a terrific achievement, congratulations to all the team especially Chrissie who is the Co Founder.   It is the direct influence of this challenge that has made CAS so popular.   I've followed on and off for all the years, perhaps taking the micky in the early days when CAS still meant an inchie mat with a topper in the middle of a blank card in my mind.   6 years on things have changed here and I often find CAS is a form that works for me.

Celebrate then; this card uses 3 stamps the champagne glass, and the musical flourish are both probably 10 years old, the stripes are from the Stamping up grungy backgrounds set.   Glass stamped in gold and masked.   Stripes stamped in 2 colours of colour box chalk ink.   Musical score stamped in gold.   Felt pens used to colour glass stamp (including ribbon) and a little more purple felt pen used for shadow and grounding of the glass in the stripes.   The bubbles have been touched with Viva Gel Pen to add a dash more colour and dimension.
