Trying that CAS again

Amy made the most lovely sketch for the challenge over at 365 cards. And her card! WOW! Check it out here! I was blocked by the amazing papers, colors and patterns and the total beauty of her card at first, but decided to go the opposite direction. Keep it simple. Use a black background.  And use my new Geisha stamp from Prickley Pear Rubberstamps  that I colored up a while ago.Geisha The circle is made out of Liquid Pearls, and I used some of that as details on her Kimono as well. It’s a terrible weather around here today, so even though I was just outside the door, under the roof, the snow came in and made white dots on my photo. Oh well. Also, I love the corner punch, and the hint of the inside red in the upper right corner, but it didn’t photograph that well.

This was a quick fix, took me like ten minutes since the stamp was all done. And now it’s back to work. It will be a long day!

Take care!

Dom kom med ett Youscraptoo paket, eller i två olika då, dom är från Heidi Grace två ark med clearstämplar, det ena heter Winnefred St & det andra Marina Dr.
Jag föll direkt för dom, så himla användbara =)

Förresten så blev jag lite ha-galen när jag kollade din blogg häromdan, så jag slängde in en beställning hos Prickley Pear, herrejisses vad svårt det va att sluta stoppa stämplar i korgen =D så mycket fint!
