It's over a week since I last blogged.  It was so hard getting my crafty mojo back after the busy Christmas celebrations, but here is CAS card I made today. Not the best of photos, I find metallic elements on cards are always difficult to photograph under artificial light. I haven't used this old wood mounted stamp for quite a while, but it's my favourite for teenage girls.  I first used it when my daughter was a teenager, many years ago! I just love the sentiment.....'I have an attitude & I'm not afraid to use it!'

The stamp is a Funstamp, 'Fairy with Attitude' and coloured with Promarkers and a silver Wink of Stella glitter brush. The purple clothes were then covered with a clear Wink of Stella glitter brush to add some extra sparkle.  The image and silver mirror card mat were die cut using Memory Box 'Stitched Octagon' dies.  I add three white and two silver brads.  That reduced my brad mountain by another five! LOL!

I am joining in the following challenges:
Memory Box Challenge #19 ~ Marvelous Metallics
Less is More Challenge #307 & #308 ~ Children
HLS December Anything Goes with Dies Challenge
That's Crafty Anything Goes 2016 Challenge

  5. I love this sentiment Liz just perfect for the difficult teenage years and the stitched octagon shows the fun image off beautifully. I love the purple dress which looks so pretty with the complementary background too. I know what you mean about getting going after the break. I have been trying to sort my crafting stuff out and am determined to finish this before doing any new cardmaking, but I still have a long way to go. x
