SC318 & CC308

Today I have a couple of cards for two challenges on Splitcoast. The first challenge is for Color Challenge 308 to use River Rock, Gray and White. The second one is for Sketch Challenge 318 on Wednesdays.

I wanted to make the first card more subtle than the second one so the main image got a softer, shadowed look. The image was lightly stamped in white pigment ink onto Basic Gray cardstock. This piece was placed in the upper left corner with paper piercing in the lower right corner. The punched butterfly was lightly stamped in River Rock with the French Script stamp. A glue dot was added only to the body of the butterfly to give it flight. Tiny silver rhinestones were added.

The second one I stamped the image more distinct with a piece of satin ribbon around the upper left corner.

Stamps: Take Three: Summer (PTI), French Script (ret. SU)
Paper: White card base, River Rock, Basic Gray
Ink: White pigment, River Rock
Accessories: Satin ribbon, MS butterfly punch, Silver Rhinestones, Paper Piercer, Rectangle Deckle Nestabilities, foam adhesive.

Though I enjoyed making these it was hard to not to more to them. I really like the CAS style. Thank you for looking.

  1. Beautiful CAS cards. Thanks for voicing your process and highlighting the distinctions between both. Both cards are subtle but you accomplished your mission with the softer approach on the first. Thanks for sharing.
