CAS Above and Beyond- 10 Minutes to Completion :-)

Hi Stampers!!

One of the lessons I learned this past weekend from the Virtual Stamp Night (VSN) at Splitcoaststampers was that I can create a card n 45 minutes or less, so I decided to start timing myself :-)

When I saw the colors from this week's DD56 Dynamic Duos Color Challenge, I decided to create a Clean and Simple (CAS) card based off one that I had created this past weekend- plus it only took 10 minutes to create!!

To create this CAS card:

On Whisper White cardstock, use the AquaPainter™ to watercolor Blushing Bride Classic Ink across the cardstock on a diagonal.  Allow the ink to dry (I blotted the ink with a paper towel to speed the drying process) and stamp the script stamp with Soft Suede Classic Ink.  Using the Color Spritzer Tool with the Soft Suede marker to add a bit of interest.

Stamp the focal image from retired set, Nature’s Wonder using Soft Suede Classic Ink onto Whisper White cardstock and color using Stampin’ Write Markers- Blushing Bride and Soft Suede.  Watercolor a bit with the AquaPainter™, add a bit more marker  and finish off with Moonlight Smooch™ Pearlized Accent Ink on the wings.  Trim and adhere to Soft Suede cardstock.

Stamp the sentiment at the bottom, adhere the focal image using Stampin’ Dimensionals® to the background panel and mount the entire panel to the Whisper White card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals®.

Stamp Sets:  Nature’s Wonder, Botanicals, One in A Million

Ink: Blushing Bride, Stampin’ Write Markers- Blushing Bride, Soft Suede

Paper: Whisper White, Soft Suede

Accessories:  AquaPainter™, Color Spritzer Tool

Thanks again for your visit – have a great Wednesday!

Lovely card using these colors. I don't enter those challenges at splitcoast, because it's almost impossible for me to do a card in less than 45 minutes! LOL! I'm a slow card maker.
