Congratulations.....

Inspired today to make a CAS card......
I started by stamping the flower and heat embossing with white.
I made a mask so that I could stamp the black stripes.
I coloured in the flowers with a few colours using Zig pens and water.
The green around the flowers is also Zig pens and water.
I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment onto black card 
and raised it a little using foam pads.
I am still playing with my Zigs and enjoying them x
Thank you for finding time to stop by....

This is gorgeous! I had thought that the black stripe was patterned paper, but it is so fun that it is actually a stamp! Really great design.

Stunning - I also thought the stripes were patterned paper, until I read you stamped them. Amazing!!!! What stamp is that - the stripy one?

Oh Mac this is amazing - love the sense of dimension you have achieved with you green colouring behind the flowers. The stripes make your card really dramatic.

Absolutely beautiful card Mac,, at first glance I thought you had coloured the flowers then fussy cut them out. They look stunning and actually look as though they are higher in level than the black strips.

Susan said...

When I first saw this, I thought the flowers were fussy cut and laid on top of the stripes - what a great job you did masking them so that you could stamp the stripes over them! Love the sentiment being on black cardstock - ties in perfectly with the black stripes. Thanks for joining us at CAS Mix Up.
