I'm back with a Viva La Verve post.
Well, my attempting to post these in order has failed already!! Ah well, I wouldn't be me if I did things in the order they were intended :)
I still have the cards for the Weeks 2 and 3 to make - I'm a bit scared as the sketch for Week 2 is not me at all! Having said that, Week 4 is the 'CAS sketch' and I've gone all out of sorts! Something most peculiar has happened to me lately and my cards are coming out all girly and dare I say it, almost shabby!!? (Shabby for me anyway, I'm sure most people would still say that it's fairly CAS!) Actually, I think I am going to steal Julee's description for this style - CASS - Clean and [sort of] simple! I think it's brilliant and it'll really catch on :)
Here's the sketch and my card for this week;
I can only apologise for the ABSOLUELY dreadful photograph! The light here is astonishingly poor and it didn't matter what I did in good ol' Photoshop, the light situation could not be entriely rectified. You should've seen the original photograph - c'est terrible!!
Anyway, like I said, this was supposed to be the CAS sketch - well, my card is anything but somehow! I don't really know how it happened, it's not like me at all to keep adding layers and embellishments but I actually quite enjoyed it :) I made the flower using cardstock and tracing paper - it gave a full look but was just transparent enough to not be too heavy or overbearing - I think anyway :)
Let me know what you think about my departure from the CAS - I'm intrigued to know whether I've pulled it off or not?!
Thanks, as always, for stopping by :)
