Today I have a card I made for the current addicted to CAS Challenge #158 codeword contrast. I just love cards with good contrast so I got out my distress inks and made this:

I recently bought a pack of "life changing" blender brushes and have fallen in love with blending, you get a wonderful smooth blend and you can really load the brushes with ink so you can get a vibrant colour. The rest of the card was easy, the poppy die is by Memory Box and I cut it from black glossy coated card from Clarity Stamp. I have used the same card for the base and heat embossing a simple greeting.

You can see the shine on the card in this picture:

And here is a close up:

A gorgeous, dramatic yet very beautiful card. The warm glow from the orange provides a wonderful backdrop for the poppy silhouette. Superb use of die cuts. Thank you so much for joining us at Less is More xx

I do like the hint of gloss on the black poppy die, it really stands out against the colourful background. Chantell Just Add Ink

Love the silhouette with the warm blend behind, a really striking design. Unfortunately, I think you've missed that our challenge this time was for one layer cards so on this occasion it won't qualify for a showCASe or prize. Please do join us again. Thanks so much for sharing with us at Less is More, Anita x
