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.
Trendy Feathers 1 (retired)
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!
