Addicted to CAS ~ Challenge #189

 Loving the code word for our next challenge at Addicted to CAS

As a Canadian, I love snow - as long as I don't have to drive in it nor have to shovel it! It can be so pretty. For my card, I was inspired by Laura Bassen at her old blog with this card

Here's my card

I started by heat embossing with white embossing powder, two sizes of snowflakes using CASual Friday Stamps' Sugar Plum Fairy stamp set arranged randomly towards the top of an A2 card panel. I did the embossing in three stages as I didn't want to accidentally stamp on top of another snowflake and I was concerned that the Versamark would lose its stickiness. To add the color, I punched out with a 0.5" circle punch and a 0.75" circle punch some paper masks. I then added distress ink (candied apple, picked raspberry, wilted violet, spiced marmalade, peacock feathers, salty ocean, mustard seed) with an ink blending tool. For the sentiment, I used Hero Arts Winter Silhouettes and Hero Arts Summer Sky ink. There it is, a snowy, one layer card.

We'd love to see how you're inspired.
