Perfectly CAS January 2021 Challenge

Good evening

I'm here to share the details of the new challenge over at Perfectly CAS.  After a six month break it's full steam ahead, the challenges being for clean and simple cards using just one third or less of the design space.  

And the January challenge has lots of scope for you, here's the cue card...

I decided on some background stencilling and some simple stamping, and wanted to put one of my new stencils to use.  I didn't receive any crafty things this Christmas so I thought I'd treat myself instead!

This was super simple.  I blended through the stencil fading up from the bottom corner.  The leaves were stamped in dark grey and the flower head in two tones of grey.  The sentiments were stamped in black and I finished with some teeny clear gemstones.

Materials used:
  • Stencil: Funky Fossil - Scattered Straws
  • Stamps: Mama Elephant - Brushed Florals, Altenew - Thinking of You
  • Ink: Distress Ink - Shabby Shutters; Altenew - Pure Graphite, Industrial Diamond; Versafine - Onyx Black
  • Gemstones from stash

  9. I love this effect when your image comes out of the corner. Like a colored fog that is heavily thickened in the corner and thinned as it travels to the center of the card. A beautiful and effective CAS card
