Casing CAS

Hello.  Welcome.  Over at PaperArtsy Joanne is back with a CAS style card.  Jo always makes it look so easy and for a change this is my first attempt, so that's a definite plus.  Usually it takes me a few goes because there's not enough, or more likely, too much ink somewhere I didn't want it. 

I say my style is simple, not CAS, so the urge to ink the edges and add a large block of London Bus is almost overwhelming.  Resist.  Resist.  Have some chocolate.  Resist.  My stamps are all PaperArtsy. SIDD5, the swirl and the sentiment, and then the long fringe is from EDY06.  I've used Fresco Finish Pansy and Rose and also added some gold dots using a Pilot gold marker.

  2. haha @ London bus, so funny. I am the same. CAS is near impossible for me.

  3. I'd say the same thing about adding more, but I'm going to give it a try. It looks like fun and yours turned out wonderful.

  4. Glad you resisted the urge, that card is wonderful! So glad to have found you through the Simon Says Stamp challenge.

  5. Brilliant card! Fab stamping and sentiment's font. xx
