ATCAS #19 – Summer

Another card for my sister’s birthday last week & which I decided was just right for entering into challenge 19 at Addicted to CAS, where the code word this time is Summer. This was my first try at brayering ink onto an acrylic block then stamping with it.  I masked off part of the block to make an “ink pad” about 10cm square then inked my cardstock with it. (I later discovered I didn’t need to use the brayer at all, just swiping the ink pad across the acrylic block worked just as well.)  Once it was fully dry I stamped the images & greeting with Versafine then decided to resist the temptation to add any further embellishment.  I’m pleased to say my sister loved it!
Cardstock: Xerox Colotech Plus 300gsm
Inks: Adirondack Cloudy Blue, Sailboat Blue, Distress Antique Linen
Stamps: People & bird – freebie, Greeting Elzybells (no longer available)
