CASology #113 (Grass), SSS Monday 15/9 (Rock The Techniques), SSS Work It Wednesday #8 (Stamping)

It seems like ages since I was here … it’s not, but life has been full since my Happy Birthday To Bev post, so it feels a long time ago!  Popping in with a QACAS (Darnellism for Quick and Clean and Simple) grasses-at-sunrise card …

CASology 113, SSSM 15-9, SSSWIW 8I stamped and heat embossed the Annabelle Stamps grasses on a white card panel, sponged them with sunrise coloured inks, edged the panel with black and sprayed it with shimmer spritz (you may just be able to make it out) to represent the dew.  The base card was masked to create a square slightly larger than the grasses panel and it was sponged in the same graduated colour.  I stamped the Stampendous sentiment and popped the panel up on foam tape.

I’m playing along at …

    Your grass card is so tranquil and gorgeous, with my favorite sunset colors, Anita! It gave me a much bigger smile than your sweet little sentiment =] Michele

    I love your delicate grasses with the perfectly paired sentiment!
    The “shadow” outline of the square is so lovely and well thought out too. It does seem a while to me that you have posted…so happy that you were able to have some time to play 🙂

    Such pretty, soft colours. This is really lovely and perfect for the CASology challenge. Feels like ages since I posted too (been a week) but have 4 cards staring at me pleading to be posted. Will have to wait till everyone in bed tonight, I can’t blog and answer fifty million questions from the kids at the same head might explode!!

    This is so pretty, Anita! I love how you blended your inks to create the sky, and your silhouette of tall grass is perfect!

  12. Geri G

    Wow! Sponging the base with the same gradient ‘sunrise’ colors is absolutely brilliant and creates the perfect mat for your pretty sunrise scene! What a FABULOUS effect! Love all the white space, love the colors and love the subtle touch of ‘shimmery dew’. Yep….winner, winner!

    Just look at those scrumptious colors – like sherbet. So effective. Just wanted to let you know that, a day late and a dollar short, I did get my “Getting to Know Me” post up today 🙂

    And a beautiful sunrise it is Anita!! 🙂 Love the soft colors and the pretty grasses blowing in the wind. Great design with the large sponged panel in the background. Loll xx

    This is a beautiful card Anita! I love the pretty colors you have used for this one and your silhouette is so pretty. I so love to look at silhouettes in the evening outside. And your card makes me feel like I’m right out there with the view. Hugs, Brenda

    Elegant, classy and truly exquisite! Your grasses at sunset should be framed…perhaps a series of grasses at dawn, afternoon, and sunset…three little images set in a single frame with three apertures. Ohhhh…now that would be a wonderful gift!! Love this! Hugs~c
