The Beach at Night

 Another colored cardstock entry for the LIM and AAA CAS challenges, but I also wanted to play along with this week's CASology challenge, "Wish" and Addicted to CAS' "Summer" challenge. I used a dark navy cardstock to give it a night sky look, and heat embossed the chair, which is from Stampin' Up, with a sliver gray embossing powder. The sentiment and star are from Lawn Fawn's Upon a Star stamp set, both stamped with Versamark and heat embossed with clear EP. As an afterthought, I wanted a little hint of a shoreline feel but couldn't put it through my Big Kick once the jewels were added. So, I went old school with a rolling ball embosser, making a few wavy lines on the back of the card. Then I roughed them up just a little with a Mono sand eraser.

  4. Super card Kathy. The silver embossing on that deep blue looks so elegant and gives an 'expensive' air to your card. Super images too. Unfortunately, I don't think you have added a link back to us at either Less is More or to AAA Cards. It was lovely to see your design though. Please DO join us again in future challenges at Less is More xx

    1. Thanks, Sharon! I had some technical trouble linking back to LIM and AAA, but better luck next time!
