Unusually For Me - CAS!

Good morning everyone and hope you all had a good weekend not too affected by all that white stuff of which we had quite a lot down here on the South coast.
A special welcome too to my newest follower Kym, so lovely to see you here and looking forward to getting to know you.
Today sees a new challenge over at Make My Monday and this week your hostess with the mostest is Jacqueline who has chosen CAS and a Sketch (you'll find this under my cards) and I have to admit to rather a lot of head scratching as those of you that know me well will know that CAS isn't me!!!
It was definitely a challenge but I ended up with not one card but two, both the same but very different, if you get my drift!
Here they are:



Do you see what I mean about different?
The first one came about because whilst looking for something else (this happens to me a lot!), I came across my Judikins Klimt cube so I stamped them with black ink and trimmed them to squares then added them to a mat of black card. I finished off with a butterfly which is one of my zentangle style doodles.
The second one uses some of the lovely cottage images from Crafty Individuals CI - 263 which were stamped with black ink and coloured with Prisma pencils. I then cut them out and added them to a mat stamped with one of the free images that Jean and Malcolm of Crafty Individuals are so generous with. I finished this one off with a B Line Designs butterfly coloured with Prisma pencils and Promarkers.

The Design Team have made some fabulous inspiration for you if you fancy having a go at this one and I hope you will.
Have a great day.
Hugs, Fliss xx

  1. So crisp and elegant Fliss and black-and-white always look so smart.

    Seeing your card reminds me I haven't seen that Judikins cube of mine for years, just proves how they all come round again.
