Hey everyone! How is your week so far? Mine has been crafty which = fun! I'm here to share with you my card for the new challenge on the Creative Knockouts Challenge Blog. Our fabulous sponsor this week is A Day For Daisies, and they have some of the most beautiful stamps! I always love having the chance to work with their images. You won't want to miss this one - the prize for the winner is a $12 gift certificate to their store! Awesome, right?
The theme we have this week for you is CAS or 'Clean and Simple'. I have to admit, when I saw that a few months ago, I was a little scared. If you've read some of my recent posts you might know that I am new to CAS cards (so please be kind!). But I have to admit, I am quite enjoying the challenge of keeping cards CAS. The image I am using Dreams is perfect for this challenge. The image is so beautiful that not much else is needed. What do you think?
The Copics I used are: skin - E000, E00, E11, E21 & E93; hair - E08, E19, YR14 & YR18; tail - BG10, BG11, BG13 & BG18; rock - W00, W1, W2, W3 & W5; ocean - B0000, B000, B00, B12 & B16. The image is printed on x-press paper. I tried the dotted effect (I think it's called 'stippling') which I've seen other people do. Not perfect, but it was fun, and a technique I would definitely try again!. Here is a closer look at the image:
For my CAS card I used Bazzill cardstock, MME paper (Lost and Found) and ribbon. That's it. But again, I think the image stands out more this way:) Head on over to the Creative Knockouts Challenge Blog when you have a chance and check out the other beautiful CAS cards by my fellow teamies. We hope you'll join in our challenge too! Hope you have a great rest of your week! I'll be back soon with more to share.
