ShowCASe #310 Colour

Hi there LIMettes it's time for our weekly ShowCASe post.


It was absolutely wonderful to see so many of you participating in our ombré challenge and you all totally rocked that one! It's never an easy job to select our favourites but we do love seeing 
all your stunning takes on the challenge in our gallery each week.

So here goes with our choices, in order of entry for 
Week #310 - Colour: Ombré

Cornelia

This gorgeous winter scene from Cornelia uses different colours of ink to make a stunning night sky in glowing purples and blues. The white silhouettes and expanse of white background keep it beautifully CAS and very striking. Great job, Cornelia!


Liz

Liz has taken a creative and highly effective approach by using shades of coloured card to create a dramatic ombre sky behind her hot air balloon. This simple scene packs loads of impact and is a great example of how well-thought out details can make all the difference in a CAS card. Well done Liz!


Hannelie

Hannelie's card had us all wowed. The neutral colour palette and delicate, elegant detailing look incredible - stylish, sophisticated and oh-so-pretty. Made using a 'leftover' frame, this card goes to show that us crafters never need to waste anything, and looking at uses for our stash can deliver stunning results!

ShowCASe #309 - Lucky Dip

Hi there LIMettes it's time for our weekly ShowCASe post.


We were blown away by the number of you that joined us for our dimension challenge and your cards were fantastic! It's never an easy job to select our favourites but we do love seeing 
all your stunning takes on the challenge in our gallery each week.

So here goes with our choices, in order of entry for 
Week #309 - Dimension




Elaine




We loved this super clever layout. The dimension achieved from the different sizes of squares at various levels is super effective. And the sunny colours are great too.


Cathy

So much dimension here from the popped up butterfly, the embossed sentiment and the crisp lines of the embossed border.  So classy and perfectly CAS.

Toni

We loved Toni's attention to detail here.  The image contained within the sentiment is a genius idea and the knitted embossed background ties in brilliantly within the theme of the card.

Congratulations ladies and please help yourself to a ShowCASe badge

We hope you'll display it proudly on your individual blogs.
