Happy midweek to ya! Nothing strikes fear into me more than CAS (clean and simple) cards. I love playing with paper - I feel safe with that. Stamping directly onto a card? Scary!
I used a technique from the Clean and Simple card class for this card:
I white embossed the flowers onto black and then colored over them with Inktense pencils. I've tried this technique with other watercolor pencils and couldn't get the color to stand out, but those Inktense pencils work so much better for me.
This card is based on this week's Unscripted Sketch #216:
I used the same Hero Arts stamp to make a card for the OWH midweek throwdown CAS challenge:
I used an Impression Obsession woodgrain stamp for the background (stamped directly on the card - yikes!) and white embossed the stamp. I used Crushed Olive and Wild Honey Distress Inks over the flowers. The Happy Birthday is from the Hero Arts Big Hugs stamp set.
I wanted to add twine or brads or something else, but stopped myself.
This was a good challenge today!
Thanks for looking.
