Seriously, You're The Best - CAS-ual Fridays Stamps!

Welcome back!  Today I'm sharing a fun background and way to create some dimension with your stencils!

I started by ink blending some Milled Lavender and Dusty Concord Distress Oxides in an ombre like pattern... dark at the bottom and lighter at the top through the Modern Petals Stencil.

After the ink was applied, I lifted the stencil and shifted it over just a bit...

And applied some Inca Gold over the purple.

As you can see, my Inca Gold has grown hard and cracked.. but I don't mind.  I just add a little water before I use it and I keep that little sponge right in the jar so it's always there.

I love the shadowy look it gives to the background!

I stamped, colored and die cut the floral from Mon Ami and framed it with two circles.. one from vellum and one from gold cardstock.  Then I added one of the sentiments from the set to a strip and attached it to my card.

Should you see something you need to have, I have this for you:

That's me for today!  Thanks so much for stopping and I hope you enjoyed it!  Come back again soon for more CAS-ual Fridays inspiration!
