Buttons,bling,and CAS

Morning guys hope you are all well,I have come down with some bug,spent all day yesterday in bed,and today just feel Like I have been hit by a truck,not like me to stay in bed all day,with no TV and not once on the computer.
So,will try and catch up with some of you today.
Bless you for the all the info about the dyes,I was asking for so kind of you love your guys,I popped onto the scales this morning and oh,wow I have lost a stone in just under 3 weeks,think its all this worry with my daughter and now,getting this bug has made it worse.
Oh well,just hope things get better soon.
Right enough of me,going on over at creative Craft this week the theme is BUTTONS,AND BLING.
Well I decided to go with one of my vintage ladies,  and made this card,hope you like it,

DP's,papermainia,flowers wild orchid crafts,twine,swirls marrianne pins,buttons,and the shape I cut myself then added some distress inks to it,also around the edge of the card too.  Image colored with my pencils.
So we would love to see you over at Creative Craft again this week you guys have been,amazing with your wonderful support,and we really appreciate it so much so many thanks to all of you for your continued support.
Next I made this card,for the fab,girls over at LESS IS MORE,these girls have had an amazing success with there blog,and I can see why as they do,super challenges,and always offer constructive advice too which I find,brilliant.
So the theme they have set this week is Double take,so here is my version of the theme using one of my new Kan ban stamps.
I stamped onto,Kan ban card for the first image,then stamped the other image with coffee archival ink ,then just placed the first image onto,foam pads,and placed on top of the first image.

Mandi said...

One Layer cards need to be just that onel layer with no additional layer, but, can include minimal embellishemnts, such as gems, ribbon etc.
HAd you stamped the frotn one first, masked, then stamped the other, it would have been fine. you could still colour the front imagie in.
Suepr card however!

Thank you, good to see you

Chrissie said...

Our challenge this week needs to be just one layer, I love your image, but as Mandi said, the second image needed to be stamped directly onto the card.
We have a few guidelines on our blog to help you sort out some of the terms etc.
We'd love you to join us again... not all weeks are for One Layer Cards!

Thanks so much
