First Post for AAA Cards ...

How exciting is this ... I've joined the design team at AAA Cards!  I'm delighted and honoured to join such an amazing team of designers ... now all I need to do is design and inspire you all to join in with the challenge!

Today's challenge is:

I chose to use heat embossing as a resist and then smooshed the panel with distress inks.

I adhered the panel to a white matt using fun foam to add some dimension and then added some splatters to the card base before adding the focal point.  Close up you can see how the heat embossing resists the distress inks.

I also added a piece of vellum for the heat embossed sentiment.

I used:
UNIKO - Doodle Flowers Background Block
            - Simply Said
Distress Inks - Squeezed Lemonade, Carved Pumpkin and Ripe Persimmon
WOW - White embossing powder
Lawn Cuts - Stitched Rectangle

Why not pop along and join in with the challenge ... remember it is a CAS challenge, the following explains what we mean by CAS.
