Illeana makes an appearance to share a little bit of Slinky!

Hello again,

Woohoo it's Friday and time for me to share my DT showcase for Slinky Tart and to my regular visitors and followers, don't fall off your chairs but...I made a CAS card!  There I've said it lol

So, here she is Illeana

Illeana digital stamp by Slinky Tart, link in her name above x

You know me by now...match the inserts :D
Here's the what's and the how's:

Once you get over the need to grab the embellishments and the need to sit on your hands to stop you has subsided, making a CAS style is both challenging and fun :D  The use of the white space is not as easy as it should be lol
Illeana from Slinky Tart was coloured in Copics and all in luscious purple tones on 160 gsm super smooth paper, from That Craft Place
She is on an A6 size card blank made from 300gsm Hint of Gold Centura Peal card stock so I could have the fold at the top.  Then matted on black and purple coordinations cardstock.
I used some left over matching cardstock (Top Tip, keep your left overs lol) to die cut the large Ivy leaves. and then arranged them with an added bit of bling.
The coordination cardstock, Ivy Die and the Centura Peal cardstock are from Crafters Companion
The gorgeous sentiment is a digital download from Gingers House and if you haven't taken a trip there yet, my TOP TIP this time is to hop on over...she is so generous and her blog posts are so funny, well worth a follow :D

Here is the close ups:
