Daisies on Kraft....STAMPlorations October 2017 CAS Card Challenge Reminder Post~Anything CAS Goes (optional twist: Orange)


The days are passing quickly and already, my wonderful teammates and I are back with a STAMPlorations CAS Card Challenge #19 Reminder Post.  If you haven't joined us yet, you still have time to create something CAS, with or without the optional colour twist: orange.

Back in September, I enrolled in the monthly online colouring classes over at Kit and Clowder, where we're taught by incredibly talented, motivating, Alyce Keegan.  She is, in a word, amazing! One of the (many!) perks of joining when I did was access to several additional classes, one of which was colouring on kraft. I've done this before, with 'meh' results, so I let it be. After watching Alyce's video, though, inspiration was renewed...and here's the result...two of my favourite STAMPlorations flowered, prisma pencil coloured on kraft.

I'm amazed at how well kraft takes colour (when you sort of know what you're doing) and how wonderfully it blends.  Yes, I still have LOTS to learn and practice, but this is a good start - and I'm delighted to share it with you. 

I also made a couple more cards...for fun and to practice masking panel strips using distress and oxide inks. Kind of straight-ish *grin*

Please head over to the main blog to see the incredible cards created by my wonderful team. You'll be dazzled and, I know, inspired to play along!  The guidelines are simple; the rewards for joining us, wonderful:
  • Players can link up to 3 CAS cards.
  • Players can enter a CAS card with or without the optional color twist.
  • Non-STAMPlorations products are OK.
  • Prizes: $10 GC for the winner; $5 GC to the top picks.
  • If there are 50 or more entries: 1 random winner of product of choice (3x5 stamp set OR 2 standard size stencils OR 1 CUTplorations word/phrase die)
Easy and so inviting!  
Looking forward to seeing your CAS creations in the gallery!

Thank you for dropping by; your visit is both welcomed and deeply appreciated!

Fabulous cards Miss Carol! Love your sweet daisies and amazing masking. Sorry to be so far behind in commenting, taking 2 vacations so close together will do that!
