Plume Portrait Giveaway on Paper Crafts Magazine FB and Stampendous Blog TODAY!

Today I'm posting a CAS card using the Stampendous Plume Portrait! I'm saying all this upfront because it's being featured today on Paper Crafts Connection FACEBOOK page.

The beauty of it is there are prizes for grabs.  If you make a comment on each Facebook page you have a chance to win this stamp! Just comment, that's all.

I made a postage sheet with some help from my stamp-a majig and tracing tool. Then I colored them all in with copic markers.

I went very CAS with this card, I tried to make it up with the fun layers that indicate the era that this lady was probably wearing the hat, but in the end the CAS style won! I tore out a stamp and spritzed it with some coffee spray (Fran Seiford's special mix of... instant coffee and water.) and then heat set it with a heat tool. The lace are all RAk's from my friend, Lori and the fiber yarn is from the $1 (I think I used it just last week on another card.).

The design team has some inspiration today, too! No need to comment on our blogs for the prize, but we like comment lovin' every once in a while.
