Flowers and feathers

Hey there, this is my second post already today. Because I made two CAS cards that I'd love to share with you:

First up is a flower card.
I cut out the flowers with my silhouette and while they were still on the cutting mat colored them with distress ink in spiced marmelade, worn lipstick and picked raspberry. I dropped some water onto it to give s some texture. Orange and pink with a lot of white always looks stunning, right?
And a pop of black makes it even better, so I also cut the sentiment, colored it black and adhered it.
Very simple but eye-catching (that's what I love most ;) )



I'd love to play along at Addicted To Stamps and More (anything goes) and the Cutting Edge Challenge, with this inspiration picture:

My second card is simple as well. A bit of patterned paper  and some wood veneer paper that I cut with Simon Says Stamp dies. I also cut those shapes out of brown cardstock and layered it to get the look of wood veneer embellishments.




I made this card for the CASology "Wood" Challenge

  4. Pink und Orange? Wow, Christine, das ist eine ungewöhnliche Farbkombi für dich. Aber das Ergebnis kann sich echt sehen lassen. Toll gemacht! Und deine Faux-Wood-Veneer-Federn sind auch ganz großartig. LG, Sonja
