Well Done Card (CASology Week #349)

Hi everyone! :o)

It's time for a new challenge at CASology and I'm showcasing my first card as a Design Team Member. :o)

This fortnight's cue word is Grill.

And here is my take on the challenge: CAS (clean and simple), masculine, Well Done Card. :o)

Design defined: 
Adding dimension gives CAS card special interest.

How I made my card....

To make this card I used a super cute grill image from Drawn by Krista 'Summer BBQ Set' digital set. I received this one for free years ago as a part of another Design Team I'm on.

For a sentiment I used a free font I downloaded from here: Spicy Sushi Roll by Kevin and Amanda. Love it!! :o)
Important: Read licences before downloading.

I printed one grill on a white watercolor paper and one on a white cardsock paper. I left images to dry over the night to prevent ink smearing while coloring.

I colored the grill in watercolor technique using Distress Inks. After drying, I fussy cut it and traced edges with a black marker.

Then I colored the grill printed on the cardstock paper with a grey marker, fussy cut the grill, leaving white thin border around it, and glued the watercolored colored grill over it. I did this because the watercolor paper I use is very thin and I needed thicker image.

Next up was the sentiment. I wrote it on my computer and printed it on the white cardstock paper. Then I die-cut it using smallest speech bubble from Create a Smile Cool Cuts 'Speech Bubbles' die cut set.

With all pieces ready, I assembled the card. I glued 3-D foams on the back of the image and the speech bubble, glued them on a white top folded card base and my card was finished. :o)
