One week flew by again and it's time for a new challenge at Less Is More. We have a recipe week ahead of us and we'd like to see CAS cards with shimmer! This week I unfortunately have only one DT card for you but I'm sure the other lovely LIM ladies have several samples for your inspiration. Have a look at their cards and all challenge details HERE. We are very happy to be sponsored by Uniko Studio and to celebrate that I'm using my most favorite Uniko set in my stash called Pure Florals: Chrysanthemum.
I'm afraid for one month from here on I'll only have one LIM DT card per challenge: I'll be very sadly parted from my crafting supplies! Yes... It's a tragedy! What will I do all days when I can't craft?!? Well, for most of this time I won't be at home so I think I'll survive. In the end of June I'll be back on my normal card making track. I'm already looking forward to that time... Then I'll be on holidays for 6 weeks! :)
So, my card this week:
I've stamped my flower- leaves cluster with the help of some masking and then colored in the images with Copics. I'm not going to lie, coloring this in took a long time... The chrysanthemum is pretty detailed and I stamped lots of leaves! My shimmer is in the leaves and in the sentiment die cut -I simply used Wink of Stella shimmer pen on top of my Copic coloring. This must be my favorite way to add shimmer to my cards. I couldn't resist using the hidden sentiment die technique again... Love it! I was holding my breath when die cutting my colored panel... It would have been NOT FUN if I would have messed up the die cutting! Luckily all went well and I love the outcome.
I'd like to enter:
I used my favorite red and green Copics for my coloring... And in general I just love coloring + am at the moment obsessed with the hidden die cut technique!
Thanks for popping by and happy crafting -I can't wait to see all your wonderful shimmer CAS cards!
