ATCAS #24 - TRANSPARENT

It's time for yet another challenge at Addicted to CAS and all our dear CAS lovers get set as the code word this week is TRANSPARENT selected by our sweet and talented Christine. She is also the host for this challenge. 
Our winner will get a $20 gift certificate from our amazing sponsors Nicecrane Designs.

For my card, I decided the work with the idea of things that are transparent and if I could recreate them on a paper project. I had ideas like glass pane on a window, a glass tumbler, an aquarium and finally the idea that clicked the most was a magnifying glass. 
Then the question was how do I show that its a magnifying glass, of course I used my MS word to type this quote I found online.... I worked on the font size and spacing, increased the size of "you" which will be seen under the magnifying glass. To make this I used my sizzix dies to cut out two frame like circles and a transparency that was sandwiched between these. I added a handle too. Rest I cut out the text and gave it a look of a torn piece of paper with a note. Gave it a little vintage look by inking and stamping a watch dial (from Prima stamp set). Final touches were added by the hearts stamped (from Studio G-iClear set)and fuzzy cut . The magnifying glass was stuck with foam dots.

Our DT has come up with some amazing projects this week. Pop over to our ATCAS challenge blog here and take a peek. I am looking forward to the challenge this fortnight and am very excited to visit your blogs.

I want to link this to the following challenges too
CASology Week 65 - CRISP (because paper is crisp ;p)
Inkspirational #41 - ANYTHING GOES  (I am not sure if I can link this up at inkspirational because ATCAS and Inkspirational went live almost at the same time, but I just want to try :D)


Have fun in creating CAS :) and thank you for visiting my blog.
