CAS-ual Fridays’ challenge this week has gone OVER THE EDGE! And I just had to join in! I colored the ACN LOVE BIRDS image with copics and cut them out. I placed the birds on a watercolor background that I painted using Corel Painter Essentials.

I also added a tab ribbon in the bottom right for Splitcoaststamper’s challenge ‘tags &tabs’ that I think helped balance out the over the edge look of the birds at the top left.

Although I know I could not make a card that comes close to her beauties, I do take some comfort in knowing that I can take a few elements of her gorgeous style and incorporate them into my CAS style. I loved the look of her ‘Speak love’ CARD and I took the element of key and banner and made a little tag to mount on on this lavender 4 1/4 square card. The CAS challenge at Splitcoaststampers this week is ‘tags & tabs’ which also helped inspire this card. The vintage key was a gift form a fellow blogger and the paper is digital dp that I created using my own Pear Blossom stamp. I paper punched the heart and used a metallic gold paint pen and glitter pen to give it a golden …
This week’s Case Study caught my eye! This is my take on it. Instead of a painted backdrop, I made a sponged grunge frame in green and added my cherries image. I painted the CHERRIES using Corel Painter. I created the sentiment (computer generated), printed it on canvas textured card stock and finished with a little red button . Have a creative day and thanks for stopping by! Deena
I’ve created the sentiment using My Memories Suite Software‘s word art feature. I replaced the O with my ACN CHRISTMAS WREATH image, and embossed the whole panel with a Cuttlebug Holly Ribbons folder. I love the festive look the embossing gives this simple card!
