I was so happy to get back into the Craft Cave today for a good few hours. I did 19 days in a row at work and when I'm in the thick of that I struggle to keep my mojo flowing. Today was good though. Despite feeling a bit rusty at first I managed to get a few cards made that I'm pretty happy with.
First up is an entry for the Addicted to Stamps and More! photo inspiration challenge. I embossed the Skipping Stones Designs sentiment in white and then painted the background with Gansai Tambi paints. The butterfly (also SSD) was embossed on vellum and popped up with strategically placed foam tape.

Next is a really simple card using the palette from ColourQ. I paper pieced the Mama Elephant Freestyle Florals and highlighted them with markers and Stickles. I love this Essentials by Ellen sentiment die. I cut it three times here and covered it with Glossy Accent. I finished it off with faux enamel dots - hole punched card stock topped with Glossy Accents! I'm also entering this in the Just Add Ink - Just Add "F" challenge and the Simon Says Wednesday Fabulous Florals challenge.
That's it for tonight. See you tomorrow for CASology!
