So Suzy Stamps is sponsoring this weeks AAA card challenge. How exciting 🙂
There’s just one problem – I don’t do CAS style cards 😛
AAA challenge 89

The good thing is that the new So Suzy Stamps release is so pretty even without any extras, so it was rather easy for me to overcome my little problem.

I started by inking up the first swan with the Tiki Torch and Tutti Frutti, both Catherine Pooler inks. I wanted to create an ombre effect, so I inked up one half with one color and the other half with the other. I overlapped them a little by wiggling back and forth with the ink pad.

I did the same with the second swan, but used Aquatini and Fiesta Blue this time.

That’s it. I just added a sentiment and was done. I ignored the urge to add more to the card and created a second one with the same technique instead. I wanted to try a different paper to see how Catherine’s inks react. The top folding card is regular card stock, the one that I always use. The side folding card is using Catherine Pooler’s new card stock. I have to say that I really enjoy it. It’s sturdy and doesn’t let the ink soak in too much. So the swan’s look crisper on it.
