I've been having so much fun with it, I think can honestly say I'm addicted to it, specially now that I discovered how to participate in a bunch of challenges, this has helped me with my confidence about showing my cards out there for all of you to see. The CAS(E) this Sketch challenge is one that has pushed me to get out of my comfort zone which means, trying to make pretty cards with very clean and simple designs, I have a bit of trouble with this concept, not because it's not fabulous, which it is, but because CAS cards are not easy for me to create, I get nervous about a lot of white space left in them but on the other hand, this style is elegant and fun.
So, here is my card, I think it's the most CAS I've ever made.
And this is the sketch that inspired it.As you can see, there is not much going on here, this adorable little SNAIL is from Purple Onion Designs and the artist is Stacy Yacula, her images are just so adorable. I stamped the image onto a Ninah Solar White panel with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored it with Prismacolor pencils. The grass is stamped with two teeny, tiny grass stamps from Art Impressions.
So I hope you like my interpretation of this CAS(E) sketch. Believe me, my hands were itching to add another layer or maybe some pattern paper or something to fill in that empty space at the bottom but I resisted the temptation, all I added were those teeny, tiny hearts.
Please leave me your comments or questions, I enjoy reading both and I will respond to you right away.
Take care and keep on stamping.
Hugs from Maria.
