This month for Letraset I wanted to try my hand at CAS style (clean and simple) it really isn't something I have had much luck with in the past. I am a grungey crafter, and clean things always end up with smudges on them. But over on the PaperArtsy blog I have been inspired by Joanne Wardle and Keren Baker, both these girls do great CAS projects.
So I decided to do my best at a minimalist card. first I crocheted these petals..
and stitched the into a flower. You can find the instructions to make one HERE.. You could of course just buy a ready made flower.
I then started to colour the flower using flexmarkers. i began with the darkest shades in the middle, and worked my way out to the edges..
It didn't take long at all, I used a medium pressure dabbing motion.
I added some white sheer ribbon to a white card blank, then added a thinner piece of ribbon on top. I coloured the top ribbon with a Flexmarker.
I glued on the flower using Glossy Accents.
Next i printed a sentiment out onto Safmat, stuck this over white card and mounted that onto some toned card.
It looked good, but there was just too much white, so i used my Flexmarkers to ink up a couple of stamps, and added a little stamping in two areas.
To finish the card I added a white stick pin, and some dots of white dimensional paint around the flower centre.
Amazingly, all the white parts stayed clean and are all still white.
I have a pack of Flexmarkers (6 pack Muted tones) to give away..
