Calling All Sistahs Oct Encouragement Challenge

Hi all! There’s a new Encouragement Challenge over at The Calling All Sistahs Challenge Blog and we have a great really Zen inspiration photo for you.

To join us, all you have to do is:
1. Make an encouragement card inspired by the photo or colors or both.
2. Link up here by 12am EST on the 13th
3. Share with your friends and followers so we can get the word out about our challenge!

One person will win a $25 gift code to use on anything in the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps store. All products are welcome, but if you use CAS-ual Fridays stamps or dies on your card, Michele will DOUBLE your prize!!! Isn’t that amazing!


I decided to be inspired by the flower in the picture and the colours and keep my card clean and simple. I first stamped the lotus from CAS-ual Fridays Mon Ami stamp set with Momento’s Rose Bud dew drop ink and coloured it in with my Zig clean color real brush. I took one of the 3 cute ballerinas from the Tutu set (I adore this stamp set!) and stamped it above the lotus to give the impression that she rose from within it.

I used Versafine Onxy black ink to stamp it and this ink gives really good coverage as you can see above. I also used it stamped in the sentiment which comes from the Tutu stamp set with Versafine ink. To finish I took my pearl pens and added little drops into the middle of each flower. I think they add an interesting touch to my otherwise CAS card. I really struggled not to add anything else to it!


Well I hope you will pop over to the Calling All Sistahs challenge blog and see what my “Sistahs” there have created to inspire you and I look forward to seeing your creations there too!

Thanks for stopping by and I really love reading all the lovely comments you leave me.
