CAS-ual Fridays #125: Colorful Fingerprint Card

by May Park-

Hello crafty friends! I hope you are having a great weekend! Today I’m sharing a card I made for the CAS-usal Fridays #125 challenge. The challenge is to create a card using a word that represents what you hope for the new year. Last year I wanted to learn swing dance with my hubby, but I couldn’t. So my first thought was dancing! Here is what I came up with:

I was inspired by all of the beautiful colors and the fun technique from the fingerprint art at Etsy. I wanted my card to be bright and unique with a burst of colors. So I created my own background by pressing down my fingerprint onto the card base with different shades of Hero Arts shadow inks. Just a lot of fun! I chose the sentiment from Good Times stamp set by Mama Elephant which is perfect for my resolution this year.

FYI, these are the supplies I used to create my card: my index finger wasn’t pictured. 😉 That’s all for today. Hope you enjoyed viewing my creation and got some inspiration.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Happy crafting!

    Hi May!
    Your card is really beautiful but for the TAWS Be Inspired challenge you have to use Alley Way Stamps!
