Addicted to CAS #39 (Texture), Annabelle Stamps #May (Sketch), Colour Q #244 (Bashful Blue, Night of Navy, Old Olive, Tangerine Tango), AEI♥U #8 (Fathers Day/Masculine), SSSW 28/5 (Anything Goes)

A card came together tonight that was inspired by a few challenges … and as a couple are closing very shortly, I’m posting it quickly!

ATCAS 39, AS May, CQ 244, AEI♥U 8, SSSW 28-5I stamped and white embossed the Annabelle Stamps lined border a few times onto textured card, trimmed it to an angled panel and watercoloured the spaces using a smooshed ink and water mix.  Once it was dry, the panel was popped up on the textured card base on foam dots and I stamped and embossed the Avery Elle sentiment.  IRL there’s loads of texture here (imagine running your fingers over all those embossed lines!) … it just wasn’t catchable with the camera.

I’m playing along with these challenges …

    Wow, this is so cool looking Anita! I love those beautiful summer colors and I can just imagine how the embossing feels! So hard to capture the texture on camera, but I know in real life it is just awesome! The picture of it is pretty awesome too. Hugs, Brenda

    You handle stamps and ink like professional artists handle paint and brushes, Anita. This is spectacular, as usual, and another winner in my book! (And way to handle the melding of challenges, too!!) Thank you so much for your kind words and for playing in the ATCAS texture challenge!! Hugs, Darnell

    Fabulous card. I really wish I could touch those embossed lines, but I will have to take your word for it. The water colored panel is just gorgeous.

    I closed my eyes and imagined running my fingers across your card …corduroy instantly came to mind! I adore the angled panel – looks so cool with the lined image! Yep, I agree with Darnell…we’re looking at another winner here!

    Sorry that I’ve been MIA – still trying to get all my planting finished!

    Stripes…lovely; embossed, water-coloured stripes…swoon-inducing! Gorgeous texture, gorgeous colours, gorgeous everything! WOW!! Hugs~c

    Anita this colouring looks so precise, goodness knows how you manage to do this so beautifully. I struggle with these angled cards, the colours are so perfect for a guy x

    This is fabulous, Anita! For a second I thought you’d hand-coloured the panel (no embossing)! It’s still a feat of engineering and skill to have colourwashed so perfectly within the embossing. I predict a win or five with this one 🙂

    Here’s me, late to the party again! Fantastic card, my dear friend. It’s one of those cards that I just want to stare at and examine for a long, long time. Just gorgeous. Pure brilliance, and not just the colors either. You sooooooo rock. Gotta go with “winner” here. LOVE this. Have to pin this too. big ol’ hugs. : )

    Amazing and I can totally imagine how it would feel, awesome!! Brilliant colours, design and execution. Your such a whizz with your creating and well done for making a card for so many challenges. Was about to wish you a happy weekend but just realised that even though its 4pm Friday here, you may not have started Friday yet! Anyway, when the weekend finally turns up I hope its a good one!!!

    Thanks so much for joining us at Avery Elle!

    Oh, the colours are so delish, Anita!! …and I can imagine how lovely those embossed lines must look and feel IRL!!! Must have taken some time to do all the colouring, but it was definitely worth the effort – very neatly done!!! The stripes look beautiful mounted at an angle and the sentiment fits perfectly!!! Stunning!!!
