I'm pretty proud of myself today! I actually created a CAS card that I like! (smile) Usually I can't seem to pull it off - at least not to my satisfaction, but this one makes me happy!
I recently got this gorgeous Zentangle leaf from Cropstop and once I'd water-colored it with distress inks I didn't want to distract from the image with too many layers or designer papers. Lots of white space just seemed to be the perfect fit.
(There’s still two days left to enter our CURRENT CHALLENGE, so be sure to stop by and link up any project that uses products from the companies CROPSTOP carries in the store. There's always a nice prize for the random winner, so you'll want to check it out!)
 Supplies and Tools:
Zentangle Leaf, Versamark Ink, Black Embossing Powder, Distress Inks (Fired Brick, Rusty Hinge, Fossilized Amber, Mowed Lawn, Pine Needles, Gathered Twigs, Ground Espresso), Scotch Mounting Tape, Stampendous Sentiment, Burlap String, Christmas Quilt Embossing Folder (Coutture Creations), Washi Tape, All Occasions Sentiments (Heartfelt Creations)
