You Are Full Of Magic

It's time for a new challenge at Addicted To CAS. Our Code Word for ATCAS Challenge #183 is SILHOUETTE. Vicki is our hostess!

We have a wonderful Guest Designer with us for this challenge - Jane Taylor of Purplejet Loves Crafts. Jane is a very talented and prolific paper crafter. Her style is largely CAS, and her designs are amazing. She dabbles in all sorts of other crafts as well. Treat yourself to a stroll through her blog for a real treat.

I am thrilled with this card that I made for a dear friend who is always comforted by Mary Poppins when she needs a lift. God knows, we all need a lift these days from all that is happening in this world and on so many levels.

To create my card, I stamped the moon with all three images from Altenew's To The Moon with PTI Soft Stone and Altenew Evening Gray and Morning Frost inks. I then die cut it with the smaller circle die from the matching die set. I die cut the black panel with the moon die and inlaid the die cut moon. I used a sponge dauber to create the halo effect of the moon with Picket Fence Distress ink. I then stenciled Mary Poppins from JB Cookie Cutters with VersaFine Black Onyx ink. I mixed some glitter powder with embossing paste and applied it to the card base using Tim Holtz's Speckles Stencil. Finally, I stamped a sentiment from Gray Muse's You Grow Girl and die cut it with a Pink and Main Sentiment Strip die and popped it up. I adhered fun foam to the balck panel and then adhered that panel to a while Neeneh Solar White 110# card base.

Please head on over to the ATCAS Challenge Blog, take a look at the wonderful inspiration pieces the Design Team has created for your inspiration, and make something to share in the gallery. Challenge winner will be offered a Guest Designer spot for a future challenge. Happy crafting!

Please remember that this is a CAS challenge. Here is a definition to remind you:

I am also playing at:

All stamps and Mary Poppins stencil are all new to me, and never before used "schtuff".
