stamp sets - Sheltering Tree, Sassy Salutations; ink - Marina Mist, Daffodil Delight, Crumb Cake; card stock - Whisper White, Crumb Cake
My second card, a return to CAS, was more of a challenge. TGIF Challenges, a new challenge blog, has a "Chopped" style Throwdown challenge that I think is incredibly clever, in spite of having never seen Chopped. I waited for my new catalog order to arrive so I could use our new heavier weight white card stock as a base, since only white card stock is allowed (as a pantry item) for #TGIFCTD01, but I forgot to order the card stock. :/ I don't like using Whisper White as a card base unless I'm going to layer it up, and there's no other card stock listed, so I was going to skip the challenge. Then I remembered Shimmery White card stock - I think that's allowable as white card stock. It was still a bit difficult for me, as I don't own the only stamp set allowed (Work of Art), but I gave it a go anyway:
Throwdown ingredients: Gold Foil, Hello You Thinlits, Butterfly Thinlits, Blushing Bride ink, Blackberry Bliss ink
Pantry items: white card stock, doily, Big Shot, sponges, adhesives
I had the "thanks" whisper white die cuts set aside on my craft table from another project. When I saw the "Just Us Girls" Challenge prompt - stacked die cuts - I remembered that a little sponging (or a lot, in this case) would add color to make it stand out even more from the white base.
