Hi Everyone. Happy Saturday.
It's the fabulous Doni's turn to host our Addicted to CAS challenge this week and she has a great code word for us:
I had a new stamp set called Artsy Leaves and realized that this was a great set for this challenge as the leaves are just silhouettes. I decided to go with a more masculine and neutral color scheme. I used three different shades of warm gray for the colors on a soft gray background and used a pop of teal/turquoise for the sentiment. I love the soft color scheme, but realized it needed just a little something-something :-) So I pulled out my Pico embellisher and added a few white dots into the negative spaces created in some of the leaf silhouettes.
Herre's my card:
Even though this has a more masculine feel, I do think it could work for females who like graphical CAS designs. Just like someone I know... errrr... me :-)
If you are looking for some inspiration, you have to look no further than the wonderful cards of our design team.
On a personal note:
I have a couple of photos to share with you tonight, including this shot of an amazing butterfly. When I saw the underside of his wings he looked just like bark... I could understand how well he would be camouflaged in a normal environment. He did stand out on the rotting orange, but he was amazing.
Seriously.... does that look like a butterfly? If you had seen him against a tree... you really would have found it difficult to identify him. Amazing.
Of course, I can't help but share a photo of the this......
I'll be back tomorrow with another card - and some more photographs. In the meantime warm hugs and prayers for those of you who need a little lift tonight, including my Pammie.
