Loli-El Taller

What a wonderful interpretation of CAS, combining the guitar strings and a background of
vibrant spots and circles makes the guitar pop and showcases perfect masking on a one layer card.

Doni

Another perfect use of masking here, a cheery fun image, vibrant colour and an ingenious way of showcasing spots and stripes. We love thinking outside the box!

Viv
LIM, One layer, Chick, CAS
Who can resist this 'tweet' bespectacled little chick! Viv shows how to stretch your stamps to the max here by adding hand-drawn stripy tie, glasses and dots. What a funky and cute character she's created.

Hi there LIMettes, it's time for our weekly ShowCASe post!

It's a pretty tough task selecting our favourites but we do love seeing all your stunning takes on the challenge in our gallery each week, and the colours of the last challenge made a really beautiful gallery,

So here goes with our choices, in order of entry for



What better than a rat with attitude?  We absolutely loved the humour of Maaike's creation 
and the mix of techniques - digital sentiment, stamped image and fabulous freehand cheese!

We adored Michelle's use of this beautiful stamp set.  The white embossed flowers 
with the two tones of yellow and grey accents is just stunning.

Claire also used two tones of yellow on this super classy design.  The superb 
placement of the crisp stamping together with the stitched border make this so stylish.

Congratulations ladies and please help yourself to a ShowCASe badge from the page at the top of the blog with our thanks. We hope you'll display it proudly on your individual blogs.

ShowCASe #326 - Shadow

Hi there LIMettes it's time for our weekly ShowCASe post.

It was wonderful seeing all your beautiful and creative entries for our lucky dip challenge and you certainly made our choice difficult. So here goes with our choices, in order of entry for 


 


The beautiful shadowy forest scene that Cornelia has created is so atmospheric.  The subtle shadows that she has created with the moonlight really draws your eye in to the scene.
 
 
 
The silhouette animals sheltering under the shade of the tree really pop against the beautifully inked background that Liz has created.  The elegant oval frame sets off the scene perfectly.
 
 
 

The shadowy shark looks perfectly at home in the ocean depths on Birgit's fabulous card!  The watery effect and curved die add real dimension to this CAS design.


Congratulations ladies and please help yourself to a ShowCASe badge from the page at the top of the blog with our thanks. We hope you'll display it proudly on your individual blogs.

We're sure you'll agree these are a wonderful trio and worthy of our ShowCASe badge this week. Do pop along and congratulate them on their win.
