CAS 8 banner

FYI, I made it!! On Sunday night I finished my last two CAS online card class assignments!

I was really happy to be able to carve out enough time to get them done by the deadline I’d set.  I really didn’t think I’d make it as I woke up a little under the weather and was lying down most of Sunday but I came around enough in the evening to make 2 cards.

In the meantime, here’s card 8 – I was initially going to make the circle plaid but I liked the way it looked with the stripes just going in one direction so I skipped the rest of the stamping:

CAS 8

The blotches on the circle are actually on the card IRL – I didn’t have a plain striped stamp so I used the back side of a more detailed stamp and there were a couple of imperfections in the stamp itself. (and using the back of a different stamp is one of the little tips I picked up on day 8)

I can see a big difference between this card and the last “one layer” card I made using circles and the same colours.  I’m still having trouble embracing all that white space so I stamped some grey splotches here and there to break up that wide open white.   What can I say?  I’m just not quite ready to go completely CAS.
