CASology Week #235; CAS Watercolor - February; Merry Monday - CAS Christmas

Hi everyone! I'm back to share three cards that I created for a few challenges ~ 

The first is for CASology and the Cue Card for this week is 'Hero'


For this card, I used PTI's set called Boy Basics: Rock On and the ARTplorations stencil: Art Splatters. The guitar die cut is stacked 3 times for dimension, and I used Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn for the splatter. 

********************

My next card is for the February CAS Watercolor Challenge - And, the theme is 'Love' 


I just purchased this MFT set called Otterly Love You, and couldn't wait to ink it up! The water was colored DI's and I used my Zig Brush Markers for the otter and heart. I also layered the Spiral Notebook with a vellum panel, and die cut one wave to tuck the otter inside.

********************
My last card is for this week's challenge at Merry Monday - We are being asked to create a CAS Christmas card. 


For this card, I embossed Ellen Hutson's Christmas Scribble tree in white then embossed it a second time with Iridescent EP, and blended Sea Glass behind it to make it pop. The sentiment was embossed with Liquid Platinum, and for the snow, I dotted the panel with a glue pen and sprinkled glitter for sparkle. So, that's it for me ~ 





I hope everyone's weekend is off to a great start! Thanks so much for stopping by,

Three beautiful CAS design Barb. LOVE the guitar with the splats ... and the white Christmas tree with the soft blue sponging. But it's that adorable Otter that made me smile. :) I'm going to have to look at getting that stamp set! :) Thanks for sharing with us at CAS Watercolour! xx

Great choice for the hero challenge, Barb, and that otter is so cute sitting in the wave. I love what you did with the tree. It's so soft and dreamy looking.

Wonderful cards, Barb! Your hero card is perfect for the "teen masculine" category of cards I seem to need these days. I love that sweet otter creating a total love scene, and your Christmas tree looks perfectly frosty!
