This is my first entry into a Tuesday Throwdown
challenge, and my fifth entry into an Addicted to CAS
The theme for TT is "Shopping Spree," to be interpreted any way participants choose. I just so happened to go on a craft shopping-spree before I read about the challenge! I went to a few chain stores just to replenish items (black ink, kraft cards, and clear EP--I have two clear EP'S and they just get speckled over time...). Of course I can't walk by sale stickers without stopping or leaving without some paper or a Tim Holtz ink product... Here's the loot:
It's Addicted To CAS's 3rd birthday! Their current challenge code word is "dimension." I think this card has great dimension, what with the background, then wires, then popped-up focal point.
OPINION POLL: I was so close to buying an embossing/ cutting machine while shopping, but I think I'll hold out and ask for the one I truly want for Xmas. Any input? I'm leaning towards a Sizzix Big Shot for my entry-level machine...
Anyway, here are supplies and notes about this entry:
- (New stuff used from my spree: the wire, stamp, and EP)
- The wire is Darice
- "Rad" stamp by Recollections, and the stripes are SU!
- Tim Holtz Ranger Distress Embossing Pad with Recollections EP in Clear
- Tim Holtz Distress stain in Broken China over the "Rad", and Chipped Sapphire for the stripes
