Smile Card (CASology Week #395 mid-inspiration)


Hi everyone! :o)

I hope you're all well. It's been a while since I've posted here on my blog.

Today I'm sharing my card for CASology mid-inspiration challenge. This is also my last project as DT member for CASology. I've decided to step down from the team, as I don't find time to fulfill my duties as DT member, neither to craft as much as I did previous years. I endlessly enjoy being a mommy to my baby boy Fran and I don't want to build up any stress in my life by having commitments that I can't fulfill. Thank you Melissa and DT Ladies!! It was a wonderful experience and a great fun. You've all inspired me a lot. ♥

On September 7th, 2021, a new challenge started at CASologyThis month's cue word is One. :o)

There's still time to join the challenge, which ends on Monday, October 4th, 2021, 9 AM, CDT (UTC -5).

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

Design defined: 
One layer, one image, one word in a sentiment.

For my card I used stamps from BEAUTIFUL Jane's Doodles 'Old Is Gold' stamp set.

How I made my card...

I stamped a camera image and a sentiment directly on a white top folded card base.

Then I watercolored the camera with Distress Inks. I had to be very quick while coloring, as the paper I used is a cardstock paper and not watercolor paper. If I add too much color, there is no way to 'pick it' or blend it like it works on a watercolor paper. :o) I colored one part at a time, drying colored parts with heat it tool.

As a finishing touch, I drew white highlights on the camera and my card was finished. :o)

Card measurements: 89 mm x 121 mm (3 1/2" x 4 3/4")
