Hand-carved monster stamped on DCWV Indian Summer patterned paper and heat embossed with Zing Opaque White Embossing Powder. The hat is hand cut with a border of Milled Lavender Distress Stickles. The balloon animal and the sentiment are from Avery Elle's Party Animal. The balloon animal is covered with glossy accents. The card base is Papertrey Ink Vintage Cream.Simon Says Anything Goes : D.

Homey Greetings

Simon Says Anything Goes so I'm adding a card utilizing a faux fresco technique from Papertrey Ink's Stamp-a-faire 2014. There is also a Crafty Secrets Linky party.

There had been a run on White Embossing Paste before Stamp-a-faire, so I bought some Wendy Vecchi Translucent Embossing Paste (you can see the application texture in this picture)  I applied it to a mat of Papertrey Ink Fine Linen cardstock and when it had dried, stamped this image from Crafty Secrets Home Sweet Home with Jet Black Stazon. It's colored with Memento Dual Markers and Wild Honey Distress Marker.

The sentiment is also from Crafty Secrets Home Sweet Home. The cardbase is Papertrey Ink Tropical Teal, the corners rounded with Corner Chompers. The velvet ribbon (Decorative Trim Jade) is adhered with 0.25 Score Tape.

Carte Postale

The  cue card for this week's CASology challenge is Letter, which was the perfect opportunity to use my Crafty Secrets French Mail set that I bought at the CHA 2010 Supershow for something other than the Eiffel Tower stamp lol.
