CAS Birthday

Good Morning Crafty Friends,

Pinch and a Punch the first day of the month!

WOW where did July go?

Today I am super excited as my new website has gone live!
I hope you get the chance to hop along for a visit!

Today sharing another card using John Lockwoods new stamps, media plate and stencils.

Step by Step

1. 7 x 7 white square card base from Anna Marie Designs
2. Matted and layered green and yellow card.
3. The background for the topper is what I brayered excess ink of my brayer so it has a mixture of colours.
4. I added red, yellow and green to the rectangle media plate and stamped onto the card. I then stamped the autumnal flowers in black. I then stencilled the acrylic mask in yellow.
5. To finish off I stamped the sentiment and drew around the rectangle and the edge of the topper before adhering to base card.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
