You Are Special

 Hello Friends . . .

I was looking for a CAS challenge to play along in and spotted the new March challenge over on The Creative Craft Cottage blog. 

 I decided to color up another image from the Altenew Simple Rose stamp set.  After coloring using my Derwent Inkpencils I fussy cut the flower.  The leaves were stamped & colored right onto my white panel.  A little sponging (ink left on the oxide ink sponge) helped give my flower a bit of a glow.  Nuvo crystal drops were also used as an accent.

 Quick post today ... hope you're inspired to give CAS a try if, like myself, you struggle with that design style.  But I must admit I think I'm getting the hang of it and find it great fun.

Challenges to share in:

Please stay safe & healthy ... remember to wear your mask!

 As always . . .
