CAS 2 ~ Day One

I enjoyed last January's CAS card on-line card class so decided to do CAS 2.  Due to the time the posts come and having to work full time, I'm always nearly a day behind.  I managed however, last night to get a Day 1 card made.   I used Kristina's sketch and adapted her card to fit my stamps.

CAS2-Day One


I took a panel of white card and used a Dylusions stencil, Wet Cement ink and sea sponge I sponged and pounced the ink.   I punched the circle and edged the entire panel with the ink.  I used a Hero Arts sentiment inside the circle.  As my coloured sentiment suited being at the top of the circle, that's where it went.   I know it is a CAS card, but I felt it needed just a touch of colour... hence the little flowers and dots of Liquid Pearls.

I am pleased with the results.  And day 2's post was fabulous.   I will try and get a card made later this evening... I will get a bit behind as I'm off to the beach again this weekend.... this time we are taking a few extra days... not coming home till Wednesday, which is a public holiday for us... two short weeks in a row.  6th of February is Waitangi Day, when we commemorate the signing of the Treaty of Waitangi .  I won't have much access to a computer... only my i-phone.  I will be scheduling a post or two so you won't miss me!!!   I'll be catching up with the classes next week.

Thanks for stopping by.  I appreciate all my visitors.

Hello Dawn
I quite like this effect for CAS, it is not too plain and holds your interest with just the right amount of elements.

I'm in the same boat! As I am about to post my card the next day's class comes up and I always feel I am lagging behind! But I am really enjoying it! I loved this sketch too and am glad that it appealed to you as well! Beautiful background on your card.
