CAS ual Friday Challenge




















For the first time in ages I have had time to join in with the challenge over at the CAS-ual Friday Blog. This weeks challenge is 1-2-3.    Create a Clean And Simple project using
1. A Pattern
2.  An Image
3.  A Sentiment
This is my card and I always find CAS really hard but I have managed to stop myself going too mad this time!



































The patterned background is made just using Distress stains straight to the stamp and then the paper, creating this fun water colour effect.  The stamp is one of the butterflies from the HA set Antiques Engravings, just stamped and embossed in gold.  The sentiment is also from Hero Arts.  So a very simple and quick card to make.  I am really pleased with the background and am off to try it out in other colours!!

Have a great day.

HAPPY SPRING, my friend! I think by now, you know how much I adore embossing, especially gold and this couldn't get any more stunning, Sally! That watercolor bg is just so beautiful, this makes for one magnificent card! XO

Oh, I love the effect of stamping with the distress stain! It's a perfect gradient watercolour :) And your embossing is perfect, as usual :)

This is so gorgeous! I'm not very good at CAS because I usually want to add something else, but I love this and it is perfect!
