Blackberry Summer

      A new challenge is starting at Your Scrapbook Place and our theme is always "Anything Goes."  Our sponsor this month is the fabulous Andrea from SheepSki Designs!   They supplied wonderful images for the DT but I chose to use one from my own collection called "Berries."

     I used ProMarkers and gel pens to color the berries, opting for blackberries this time, although I've used this image before and did them as raspberries.  I kept the card design fairly CAS but it looks much fancier because of the Spellbinders die I used to cut the image.  It's inlaid into the background which was also cut with the same die.  Notice the embossing on both the image and the background?  All from that same die.

     I wanted the open spaces from the die to be dark so I used the die one more time and cut a piece of navy blue CS.  I inlaid the bits which fell out of the navy blue die cut into the white image piece.  Again, a way to make a CAS card look fancier.  The bow is one of my signature bows with a purple pearl.  The sentiment was printed and cut with an Avery Elle die.

I used Purple, Green and Navy Blue from the
color board at CMH Color Dare.


     Happy Crafting and come play with us this month.  :-D  NanaConnie
