CCC #54... choose beauty

Hello friends!!  Tuesday is here, again, and that means time for a new CASology challenge.  Last week we kept things cool, but now we are looking for that "midas" touch because our cue word is "gold".   Our guest designer this week is the super talented Hannelie who definitely has the midas touch when it comes to card making!  All the details can be found on here.


I recently received some new Hero Arts stamps and one of the sets has a couple of feather images in them.  Feathers seem to be a trend right now and so I decided to make my card using one of the images.  I stamped the image twice on my cardstock using Delicata Golden Glitz ink and then a third one on scrap cardstock and trimmed it out.  The edges were edged with a bit more of the Golden Glitz ink and then adhered to the cardstock piece on top of the stamped images.  Some notices were cut in the sides of the cardstock piece, twine was wrapped around and tied in a bow.  Finally the sentiment, from another Hero Arts set, was stamped using black ink.  I distressed the edges a bit and then adhered the piece to my kraft card base.  Easy peasy.

Thanks for stopping by... I cannot wait to see what "gold" ideas all you super talented papercrafters come up with for this challenge!! In the meantime make sure you check out the cards from the rest of the design team: Melissa, Judy, Meghan, Ardyth, Gillian, Maureen, Kimberly, Jen and Tracey and our guest designer, Hannelie.

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white & kraft; Stamps: Hero Arts:  Remember & My Favorite; Ink:  Delicata Golden Glitz & Tuxedo Black; Twine:  May Arts; Notch punch:  Stampin Up!
