Casing the CAS (once more)

I delved into the CAS favorites thread at Splitcoast again for inspiration before making this card. I came across this lovely sponged panel card and wanted to create something just like it. I prefer Andrea’s beautiful scene with grasses to my silhouetted blossoms but I enjoyed creating something with a sponged panel over a sponged panel; most of my sponged cards lately have been one layer.

I masked the card base to create the horizontal panel, which I embossed in black then sponged in pretty in pink, almost amethyst and going gray.  I then created a vertical image panel which I matted in black and popped up on the card base.


Stamps: Garden Silhouettes (SU), Taglines (Flourishes)
Inks: Versamark, Pretty in Pink, Almost Amethyst, Going Grey
Cardstock: Flourishes Classic White, Basic Black
Also: Black e.p.

    Oh boy, Heather, what a beauty! Who would ever think a black spray of flowers could be so lovely. The black goes so well with your sponged colors, too, and the whole effect is very striking. I DO like Andrea’s grass card…..but I like yours better! Beautiful!

    There’s something rather tropical sunset about this beautiful card. I love a one-layer card but it’s nice to branch out sometimes!

    I think your card is just gorgeous and you have inspired me to give the CAS and one layer cards a try, may have to CASE this one 🙂 Love the image and the colors. TFS.

  9. Gorgeous, Heather! What pretty and clean layering!
