CAS Daisies.....

Hello everyone: This is CAS week at Addicted to Stamps and More so I made this card to participate in this challenge. I still struggle a bit with this style, sometimes I think I'm right on the money and other times I feel like I totally went to far, I don't know about this card but, here it is anyway.

At first I was going to use one whole panel of water color paper but I found this 3 1/2"x2 3/4" piece so I decided to just use it instead. I stamped the image from a retired SU set called "Every Moment", this daisy is just beautiful, I stamped it once with Stazon Jet Black ink and then, made a mask and stamped it again, I colored it with SU Hello Honey ink and the aqua painter, I added some shade with Baked Brown Sugar ink and some Garden Green for the stems.
I tied a little bow with linen thread and stamped the sentiment also with Hello Honey, I scored the panels to frame the image.
Here is a picture of the finished inside of my card.

The greeting is from a retired Flourishes set called "Lots of Thoughts" stamped with Hello Honey, the frame is from another Flourishes set called "Country Charm Labels", stamped (second generation) with Wild Wasabi, the little basket is from Flourishes "Around the Harbor".
Here is the banner that inspired this card.

Thank you for stopping by, until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.

Oh! Right on the money! Very classy CAS and this would make the most lovely Sympathy too, save that mask! Great layout and overall CAS design!

You've hit CAS perfectly with this, Maria! Love these daisies! Beautifully colored and framed!

Thank you Sonny, I too like the scoring as a way to frame an image.

Thank you Patti, I thought maybe all the layers were going to compromise the CAS design I had in mind, so glad they didn't.

Maria A. said...
