Not Really CAS

Welcome.

I love this card because at first glance it has the look of a CAS (Clean and Simple) card, in reality, it was anything but.
And I had fun making it, which was most important!


I started with a "new to me" stamp, and stamped it in Timber Brown Staz On ink, as I knew I wanted to play with various mediums over it, and did not want the ink to run.


I coloured around the leaves with a water colour pencil, and blended it sightly.
Painted the daisy with gold perfect pearls and then an orange pencil for the centre.
The centre of the large flower was coloured using the perfect pearls, and the petals with Perfect Passion Glamour Glaze.
The whole panel was then sprayed with Perfect Red Perfect Pearl spray.
I could not capture the wonderful shimmer with the camera, 
but is is there and it is gorgeous IRL!


The edge was then cut using an S/B edgabilities die set, and the red card was cut to correspond.


The feature panel was mounted over the purple card, the ribbon added, and then layered onto the white base, with the sentiment embossed in gold.

  4. You put a lot of thought into this card and it is a lovely design. I love the edgeability dies. I have the scalloped set and I use them quite often. I can imagine the shimmer even if it doesn´t show very well in the photos. Well done. Kate x

  15. CAS or not, this is just gorgeous, Maxine. I love how you've highlighted the nature elements with colour, and the diecut border is very pretty. It certainly is a lovely stamp and you've showcased it beautifully.

  16. Maxine, it's stunning. I am loving all the different mixed media techniques that you've got displayed on this brilliant card. Again, you've reminded me about the edgeability dies, which I forget to use. Looks very pretty as the edge on this card. Love that music background and all the layers you've got on this one. TFS & Happy Sunday.

  21. This is such a pretty card! I really like the stamp, didn't realize it was all one image at first. It looks like you built it from layers of stamps!

  22. Wonderful card- love the flowers and your coloring- and the Kanji is a cool look too. Is that one collage stamp? Love the pop of color you added with the red edging.
