CAS374 - COUNTING DOWN

Hey there, this week's CAS challenge, Let the Background Talk, is all about open space with a burst of color.  I decided to break out My Favorite Thing's Out of This World stamp set and create a sponged galaxy background.


On a 4.25" square piece of Neenah Solar White, I sponged Memento Pear Tart towards the corner.  From there, Summer Sky, Danube Blue, Paris Dusk and finally Tuxedo Black was sponged onto the background panel.  When it was done, a paint brush was used to speckle water drops onto the panel.  Then white acrylic paint was thinned down with water, speckled and set aside to dry.  While it was drying, the spaceship was stamped with Tuxedo Black onto Neenah Solar White, cut out with the coordinating die then colored with Copic markers.  A clear glaze pen was used for a nice, subtle shine on the window.  The medium sized circle frame was used to create the track for the spinner card.  So much fun!

COPIC COLORING:
SPACESHIP:  T6, T4, T2, T0, B45, B41  ALIEN:  YG03, YG01, YG0000  WINDOW:  B00, BG70

The lilac is a Susan's Garden die.  Love how realistic the flowers are!  The sentiment was embossed on vellum and attached to the back of the MFT frame.  The ladybug was made with Viva Perlen-Pens...so fun!

CAS363 - HI, FRIEND!

Hey there, I'm popping in with this week's CAS challenge, Round and Round...to use circles on our projects.  I actually colored this last year for one of Kia's challenges, but wasn't feeling the layout so I set it aside and kind of forgot about it.  This challenge reminded me that it would be nice to blow the dust off and get it finished!  LOL



The image was stamped with Tuxedo Black onto Neenah Solar White then colored with Copic markers.  Instead of going "Out of the Box" with the flower, I stamped it a second time, colored it with Copics, fussy cut it then glued it directly over the top of the tag.  Out of the Box for cheaters!  Ha   The butterfly was created the same way.  The fun sketch was a recent one by My Favorite Things, Sketch #268.


COPIC COLORING:
MUSHROOM:  R59, YR18, YR15, YR31, W3, W1, W00  MOUSE:  W5, W3, W1, W00  EARS, PAWS, BELLY:  R30, R00, R0000, W00  FLOWER, BUTTERFLY:  V17, V15, V12, RV10, R59, YR18, YR15, YR31  SKY:  B00, BG0000  GROUND:  G21, G20
