Pink & Green Pinecones

Julie Warner –


Well, it turns out my first post today was for a CAS Challenge last week, lol. I got lost in the Challenge list and picked the wrong one. This is for the challenge that’s actually today…(CAS244) Tearing or Distressing. While it may not look totally clean & simple, it actually is CAS. For my pink/green bg, I quickly (very quickly) pounced/sponged 4 colors of ink then stamped the image w/ Versafine on top. It’s die cut w/ a long rectangle and I added a bit of a white marker and stickles to the snowy parts of the pinecones. The black grid looking bg is a long ago leftover from a TLC challenge (TLC235) painted grid. This is also for one of the Hope You Can Cling To Challenges…HYCCT1326, Mixed Media.

I tore the side of the long strip using a tearing ruler (makes it so easy). I attached it to a left over strip then attached the narrow little strip I tore off. I added the greeting on the card front and a few sequins cause you can never have too much bling! The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
