Mannequin CAS

 Okay this one went much better. It took me only one time to do this card.  I did use painters tape with this one and I used Distress Oxide ink to make the strip. I taped a strip on white cardstock and I took 3 colors of Oxide ink and colored the background inside the strip. I then took some water and sprayed it on the ink to make the spots.

Next I stamped the corner flourish with a gray ink before I removed the painters tape..
Then I stamped the mannequin stamp at the bottom with black ink.

Clean and Simple card

This was a challenge for me. It took me 4 times to get this one card. I did it though and I love how it came out.
I started out with watercolor paper.( that makes a difference with this card)
Next I used masking tape.(I did try painters tape but it didn't work for me). I masked off a strip on the front of the card. Next I took my nuance powers. I must say if you have not tried these powders you should. They are so rich in color. I just love working with them.
I mixed the powder with some water to make a watercolor. I then took the watercolor and colored in the strip that I masked off. Dried it with a heat gun. Then I added more color to get the look I wanted. Again Dried it with a heat gun. You could let it air dry but I wanted to get to the next step faster. Then I took out my silhouette man with cane stamp  and stamped on the bottom of the card. Then I called it done.
  Please come and try your hand at CAS.
To link up your entry. Hope to see what you did.

Dia De Los Muertos

Hello all  here with a Day of the Dead piece .

I started of with a wooden stand and I painted it black. As it was drying I stamped winged skeleton onto white cardstock. Colored the heart with a red copic marker. Next I cut out the image. 
Then I glued it to my painted wood piece. Then I glued the flowers to the bottom.
