Now, I LOVE clean and simple (CAS) cards, but often feel that they are not enough in some way for me to share here on Blogger - I always feel that I should add more to them or show more technique, but for a change, I decided to make something VERY clean and simple...
Digi Stamp Boutique and thoroughly enjoyed colouring her up with my Pro/Flexmarkers. Here's the list of colours I used :
Skin - Blush, Dusky, Sinkissed Pink, Coral
Hair - Champagne, Sandstone, Caramel, Cocoa, Umber
Top - Soft Aqua, Cool Aqua, Duck Egg, Marine Blue
Leg warmers - Cerise, Shocking Pink, Vermillion (one of my fave marker combos!)
Hairband - Buttercup, Mustard, Sunflower
Grass - Meadow, Leaf, Bright Green
I printed my image quite big (I used the 10 x 15cm print option in Photo Viewer) so decided that I wanted to simply frame the image in some way. I created the white and aqua frame using square dies and mounted using 3D foam pads to give it some lift. I then mounted onto a nice hot pink matt to bring in the colour of her leg warmers...
...I have seen paper bows around a lot recently and had C&C on in the background whilst having my dinner the other day - I noticed that the paper bows shown looked very similar in shape to an XCut tag die that I have and so decided to experiment! I cut 4 of the tag shapes, which have a hole in each end, then cut the ends of two them to create the fishtail ends. I curled the other two with my pokey tool and then attached them together by threading the stem of a paper rose through the holes and twisting around the centre to secure! I am really pleased with how it turned out and shall be having a play with some of my other tag dies to see what they look like!
Hope you like my CAS creation and thanks so much for dropping by to see me! Don't forget there's still a little time to enter into this week's Have a Heart Challenge over at Passion for Promarkers - a new challenge starts tomorrow morning!
Big crafty hugs,
