I’m late doing this post! No reason, no excuses . . . I’m just late!
The CAS Challenge at The Outlawz this week is Anything Goes! It is exactly that – any theme, any colours, any image as long as it is CAS! I didn’t know this was going to be my last post with the CAS team but people seem to love Anything Goes challenges, so it worked out well.
I have loved every second of my time on the DT. I’m stepping down because I have switched gears a bit in my crafting. Although I’m still making cards (ABSOLUTELY!!!!!!) I am also learning to draw and doodle and have been focusing on that. I wanted to open up the spot for someone who is excited about doing their blog posts and excited to promote the challenges. I love my CAS sistahs and have promised to pop in and visit and enter some challenges. (They can’t get rid of me that easily!!) We have a new member who has already started (Donna Rinckel) and she is an awesome addition to a fabulous team!
I created 2 cards for the challenge this week. The first one has been doodled. I’m not thrilled with how it came out. In my mind, I wanted something flowing around the words “CAS Rocks”. It didn’t quite achieve the look but it’s a learning curve. I have never done ‘random’ very well (I know – oxy-moron) but it is true.
My second card is using this cute image Little Snowman from From the Heart Stamps for the January Stamp of the Month Challenge. The digi papers are from Bearly Mine Designs (sadly, Donna has closed shop due to the VAT legislation). I created the layout digitally. The smaller square behind the snowman is filled with the same paper as the background and then I created a bit of a shadow behind it. I added in the .png version of the image then printed and coloured with copic markers. I added some Stickles to the pom-pom, fur around the hat, the snow and a few of the snowflakes. To the other snowflakes I added tiny crystals. I love how this turned out.
Thanks so much for dropping by. I hope you’ll join us in the challenge this week and check out the details for the monthly Stamp of the month challenge at From the Heart Stamps.
