I created this for several challenges:

Less Is More 161 - Yellow and Green
CAS(E) This Sketch
Little Red Wagon - Spring
The Card Concept - Floral Theme - Clean and Simple
The Friday Mashup - Spring Flowers
Virginia's View - Watercoloring
The Paper Players - Spring Thank You card
CAS On Sunday - Color Me Pretty - use markers, pencils....

This was also made for the SCS Inspiration challenge and Featured Stamper Challenge.

Wow I've never made one card for so many challenges before!  I colored this Rubbernecker 4 step stamping image with Distress markers, spritzed them with water and stamped them onto Tim Holtz Watercolor paper.  The sentiment is from Amuse.
The style of this card according to the Card Concept is CAS (Clean and Simple).  Here is their definition:

  • One main image
  • Lots of open space (uncluttered)
  • Limited layers & embellishments
  • Quick & easy to recreate

Here is the CAS(E) This Sketch:

Thanks for coming by!
