Rubber band bamboo!


Hi everyone, I'm racing to the finish line with this card!
I wanted to join in the fun at CAS Mix Up Card Challenge, where they are stamping with rubber bands!


There are some amazing entries and designs by the DT. I wrapped a few bands around an acrylic block ( don't have a brayer with a removable roller). I thought the lines looked a bit like bamboo and went with that!

My other elements are stamping, fussy cutting and diecutting. The base is a hammer card and it has that great texture when you buy it.

At Simon Says Work it Wednesday, it's a Mother's Day theme.


I'm also linking up to the CAS challenge at Addicted to Stamps & More,


At AAA Cards it's all about the perfect day. Mother's Day is usually pretty perfect for me as I am happily spoilt so that I don't have to do any cooking, cleaning or housework, and if I want to stay in the craft room all day...I can lol!



Supplies:
Mama Elephant panda stamp; black archival ink; versafine olympia green ink;  Crafts 4 u stitched rectangle die; Happy Little Stampers stitched border die; sentiment sticker.

Thanks for visiting,
Cathy x
