Guest Designer at CAS-ology


Hi everyone.  I'm so excited to be the Guest Designer at CAS-ology today!! :)  I was given this opportunity because I won a couple of weeks ago with this card.  Thanks Melissa!!

Here's the new challenge ...




I don't have a lot of musical stamps, but I did have this wonderful sentiment and every time I use it, I sing the song in my head. :)

I kept my card very CAS by making it a one layer ... well there's actually two as I almost ALWAYS add a smaller panel for my card front ... no exception here. :)  But the card front itself is one layer.  Just a little masking and sponging created my peaceful scene.  I added movement and interest with markers ... brown for the flying birds, and white for the waves of the ocean.

Please click HERE to check out the challenge and see the amazing cards from the Design Team.  I hope you'll join us for this fun challenge! :)

Accessories & Tools:  Sponges, post-it notes for masking, circle stencil made with my circle nestabilities (Spellbinders), plastic acetate sheet

Another great card Loll. I used to sing this song to my eldest son when he was a tiny baby! I love visiting your blog and have just watched the video for the card that won you the GD spot at CASology this week. Lots of great tips and techniques, especially using a blender pen, it certainly does make a difference and I will be trying it out soon. Thanks. Stef x

Loll, beautiful card. I love this song, its one that I constantly sing as I do things around the house. My daughter, who is special needs, loves it too and often prompts me 'you my sunshine' meaning sing it again.

This is a stunning card--so very peaceful and CAS. Now, I have that song running through my mind (which is a good thing). So wonderful to have you here with us as our Guest Designer this week.

"...you make me happy when skies are grey..." What a great song and what a beautiful one-layer card, Loll! I adore the white lines in the ocean, brilliant!!! So great to have you as a Guest designer this week at CASology!

Superb Loll! Love your inking and clever hand-drawn additions! Such a talented card-maker! So fantastic to have you guesting with us at CASology this week!!

Jeanne said...

Fabulous work, Loll!

MaryH said...

How fab that you're the CAS GD...Great choice they made too! I am always so amazed at the depth & perspective you achieve with your CAS scenes. This one fairly sings and what a perfect sentiment to go with this bright sunshine water. It's soothing, but yet at the same time, the 'movement' of the birds & water ripples makes it come alive. Brilliant card. TFS & Hugs.

Brenda said...

Wow Loll, this is a very peaceful card for sure! I love the sweet scene you have created, it looks so real I think I can hear the ocean and birds. You always make the best CAS cards! Hugs, Brenda

Karen D. said...

love it!!

Bonnie said...

One of my favorite songs and one that I sang to my girls. This makes me want to go to the beach! A beautiful scene!

Bobby said...

With all the comments about singing this song, I guess you captured the "music" cue perfectly, Loll. And the sun coming up over the water is inky perfection.

Karen Mead said...

I just love this gorgeous design Loll - such a perfect cas card and a great sentiment too! Hugs xx

Gorgeous masking and inking here, Loll, and I always end up singing that line as well. :) So glad to have you as our guest designer this week!
