Expand Your Imagination

Hello there.  Squeaking in tonight with a quick CAS birthday card. 


Started by die cutting a Wonky Stitched Rectangle from X-press It cardstock.  Used Copic friendly ink and stamped the critter.  Masked him then stamped the stack of books.  Masked it and a horizon line and blended Vintage Photo distress ink for the background.  


Removed masks and Copic coloured the imagse in fall colours to keep with the season  Heat embossed the sentiment with Versafine black ink and clear embossing powder.  Adhered the panel to a white card base to finish.  



Quick, right?  Thank you for dropping by.  Have a wonderful week.
