Hi, and welcome!
Today I decided to make a CAS card. I have to say, even though CAS is not my go-to style, it is starting to grow on me, and I am enjoying the change now and then. It is getting a little easier for me, but I still have to fight the urge to add 'just one more thing!'
I used stamps from Hero Arts. I thought it would be fun to stamp them on kraft card stock, and see what happens when I color with Tim Holtz distress inks. It worked, and I like the effect. It looks somewhat muted on the kraft, giving it a more fall feel, I think. I used a Dove blender to 'watercolor' the ink onto the leaves.
I used masking to stamp the leaf in square three times down my card, and added the same type of lines around the perimeter of the card using my brown micron pen to mimic the lines around the leaves.
A little soft shading with distress ink and my Clarity brush, and a verse stamped on vellum complete this CAS card today.
I made this card for these challenges:
A Blog Named Hero - Geometric (squares)
Stamp, Ink, Paper - Color challenge
Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge - Autumn
Tuesday Throwdown - Add a border
