The Flower Challenge #57 CAS


CAS (Clean & Simple)

First card I coloured the flower with Copics RV10 R81 R83 R85 R89
I then fussy cut with great care. I picked a card base that I had cut with a section die
from Tim Holtz.

I decided to add a strip of waterecolour cardstock I had added Distress Oxides to as I felt it looked both pretty inside the card and behind the die cut section on the front.

I then added the flower with dimensional foam to lift it slightly and finished off
with a die cut sentiment in silver glitter card 'precious'

I dont know if this is blurry or me but anyway after doing the other card that is ultra CAS (for me) I decided to do a slimline card using some of the other flowers I had coloured and fussy cut at the same time.

I used the same colours as I did for the other flower. Leaves I forgot to mention and now I cant remember exactly, closest is YG01 YG05 and I think YG 25. I used a panel that has been imprinted with a neat dots pattern. 'Birthday Wishes' from The Ton Sentiments die.

I really hope you like these and now its time to go check out what  the amazing creations from The Design Team at The Flower Challenge Blog and our Guest Designer Rachel from  Rachel Alvarado Designs
I have chatted with Rachel on and off on Instagram and I have followed her Instagram and Blog for years, a true inspiration to me. Every time I see another post I dream of being able to colour and design just like her.

Thank you so much for coming to visit 

Happy Crafting

Two fabulous cards, Aileen. I love that die cut corner on the first one and what a great idea to run a full panel inside. The design on the slimline is great with the sentiment between the flower segments.

Well Aileen, both of these cards are just amazing!!! I love the die cut on the first one and the gorgeous background peeking through.
The Second card looks amazing too, those bright blooms look beautiful against that embossed background.
Love the golden sentiment too.
Stay healthy and safe, my friend.
