Hello crafty fellas! Happy to see you! Today I challenged myself to create a CAS card which I don’t do very often. But for the needs of the AECP program and the Clean And Simple Boutique Cards course by instructor Jennifer Rzasa I created a CAS card with a bit of dimension to suit me better. And here it is!



The BAF Cattleya stamp set is a layering stamp set, meaning you can go ahead and stamp all the color layers to create a realistic flower. But lately I find myself enjoying coloring so I stamped the outline image onto a piece of Arches cold press watercolor paper and pulled out my watercolors. I used the Sakura Koi Watercolors Sketch Box and the Tim Holtz Glass Media Mat as my palette (love working on this mat!)



After all the colouring was done, I die cut the flower using the coordinating dies and started working on the background. For that, I used a piece of Tim Holtz watercolor paper and applied shades of dull blue and a few splotches before stamping the sentiment and die cut it to a circle.

I continued by applying some splotches directly onto the card base and then I foam mounted everything on top.



BTW, have you seen the Simon Says Stamp/Altenew collaboration for Stamptember? Gorgeous or what?!

Well, Thank you for dropping by! I hope you found this post inspiring! Keep crafting and I’ll see you soon!
