CAS Challenge


The Challenge this week from my Ocean's 11 group is to make a CAS (clean and simple) card. Our challenge was issued by Peggy Sue. This is the first one I have made in a while. After learning to layer, match different papers and adding embellishments, it was kind of nice to go back to a simpler card. I used a Studio G stamp from Michael's that I stamped with Memento ink. After stamping the image, I went over the outline of the chick body with a Sakura Glaze pen. I really like these pens, they come in several colors and leave a slightly raised, glossy look. Then I added yellow fun flock and then went in with the orange Glaze pen and added some color for a beak. I also tracked the legs with the orange pen. I used copic markers to color in grass and the sky and tried to draw in the grass. I think I should have use a slightly darker shade for this because it blended in with the overall color. I used my long rectangle Nestabilities to make my scalloped mat. To finish the card I scored three lines on the bottom border of  the card using my Scor-Pal.

I had a lot a questions asking me where I got the frog stamps from the spinner card. I got it when I went to the Stamp Scrap Art Tour and it was made by Repeat Impressions. It's one of those booths that I purchased several stamps from. Okay truthfully there wasn't a booth that I didn't buy stamps from!
