Addicted to CAS Challenge 24 Transparent

Hello Lovely Ladies

A huge thank you to those of you who passed by recently to welcome me back to blogland I was touched by how many of you came to pay a visit after such a long absence. I wasn’t expecting such a crowd otherwise I would have laid a buffet on and a had a drinks bar !

Onto the matter at hand and  its time once again for a new challenge at ATCAS and our super host for this fortnight is Christine , you should really pop over and visit her blog she is one talented lady, so what did she choose for us this time……

ATCAS - code word transparent

Well I’m sure you will agree that there’s lots of room for interpretation here and if you visit the other members of the DT at ATCAS you can feast your lovely eyes on their fabulous take on the theme.

So what did I do , well…………



Both made mainly by my gorgeous Cameo , under my direction of course. On the first the sentiment is printed directly onto acetate and inserted into the frame , the black border is created by Spellbinders Edge-abilities and the base by Spellbinders Card Creat-abilities,  well I think that s what it’s called.

For the dapper gentleman again Ms Cameo did her thing,  including the sentiment which seeing it now here on my blog looks really teeny-weeny and a bit out of proportion . Since Silhouette America haven’t come up with making 3D googly eyes yet I had raid my stash !

I thought I would include for your perusal some shadow boxes that I made a while ago but never blogged  .I’m afraid there is a rather tenuous link to our theme  and am not sure how CAS they are except for the flower, but here goes anyway







On some of the boxes I have placed images both on the front and back which I’m not sure is obvious from the photo’s , a piece of thick vellum has also been attached at the back of the box and when darkness falls I light a candle behind each of them .  Of course all made using my Cameo except for the shadow boxes which are made from thick MDF. Sorry about the photo quality but its a bit tricky trying to capture the images with a candle behind !

We have a fabulous sponsor again for you this time Nicecrane Designs who is most generously offering $20 worth of digital images


We would love for you to join in the fun again with us at ATCAS,  it’s always such a pleasure to see your creations and you do make it hard on our hostess to choose winners each time .

Well I’m sure I’ve kept you long enough so wishing you all a wonderful weekend and will be popping by later on to see what you have been up too
