CASology Bloom - take two
OK, this card is for those of you who called me the "crazy dot lady" (I know it was said with love! lol!) for this card I made as my sample for this week's CASology Cue Card, Bloom. I hope you'll get a chance to play along - the deadline's tomorrow at 4:00 pm CST.
And it's for one of you who last week wondered if her card was CAS enough for CASology. I mentioned in my comment that I had made two for this week's Cue Card, but opted for the one with more white space. But it shows how one idea can go in different directions.
And finally it's for the person who wondered how many takes it took before I landed on the card I actually used for this week's challenge (let's see, there was one with Stickles (yuk!), 3 with glossy accents, (which I thought was SUCH a good idea, but I couldn't actually hit the dots exactly and ended up with 3 gooey messes) and this one here, so I guess you finally saw number 5, which really proved that sometimes less really is more!)
This card used the same original idea, but kicked up a notch or two. I quite like the 'mosaic' feel of this, created with two green copic markers, and completely eliminating the white space, which is really what takes it out of the CAS realm. I also messed up the centre, so I just cut it out and popped up the layer over this Hero Arts sentiment.
Finally, I should say that this technique is really quite simple and soothing and not even all that time consuming once you accept that you'll never make the dots all the same size! ;-)
