Color my world with family, friends and some time to be creative making cards!

High Tide or Low Tide…


Hello, It is time for CAS Week at Just Us Girls and sweet Lisa Elton is our fabulous hostess. What she wants us to do is use a silhouette on our card. Boy did the team and our fabulous guest Claire make some amazing cards that you must check out.

I know you have seen me make this background before but I just love it. I like that the break in the stencil makes the seafoam.

I would like to take a moment and thank Claire for being with us this month at JUGS, we certainly have enjoyed all your fabulous cards. come back and see us when you have time.

Card Details: You know I love to make ink backgrounds, so that is what I have done on today’s card. I used the Watercolor Wash Rectangle stencil from MFT, and straight piece of acetate for my horizon, and some Oxide inks to make my simple background. The stamps I have used are from one of my favorite Stampin Up sets- Hide Tide. A ten-minute card at most, with fun results.

I am also linking up over at Happy Little Stampers for their Anything Goes Stencil Challenge.

I hope to see you in our gallery at Just Us Girls this week! Take care and happy crafting, Nanc’
