It's CAS-ual Fridays and the theme is Both & Beautiful or pastel colors with an accent of black. What I loved about this particular challenge is that it could be played any number of ways with any number of pastels colors and still be amazing with a black accent.
Here is my take. I had previously colored this digital stamp from A Day For Daisies. It is actually a row of jars and flowers, I had experimented with a different way to color it and then set it aside. I thought it would be fun to cut out one of the jars, the coloring was pretty pastel and pretty subtle.
Do you love the dotted background? I stamped a dot stamp by Paper Smooches a couple times on white cardstock and then embossed the dots with white embossing powder. Next I used some Distress Stain to color the background. One thing I really like about using the stain is that you can get an irregular color and I really like that look.
Next up, my Card Positioning Systems sketch card for this week.
The Stamps of Life is the sponsor and I picked this great verse stamp. I love it in every way.
I added the three hearts, this isn't really on the sketch but that is what is cool about using a sketch is you can interpret it any way you want. I did some spraying and rubbing to distress the white cardstock that I had stamped the verse on.
