CAS-ual Fridays #87: Make Your Mark





It's CAS-ual Fridays time! 

Come join us for CFC#87: Make Your Mark...create a CAS project using markers!

I think it's long been established on my blog that I'm not much at "coloring" on my cards...which is odd now that I think about it because I always loved to color in coloring books...so this challenge scared me a little bit! I had been wanting to use the CAS-ual Fridays Rad set to make an ultra-girly card since it's kind of perceived to be a "guy" card, ya know?

So, I mounted all those different stamps on one block, stamped them in Versamark, then heat embossed with white embossing powder. Finally, I colored in the outline stamps with different colored pastel markers. What do you think?

It's a whole lot of pink, right?! A little card history...it started out as a one-layer pink card. I found my body physically rejecting all that pink, so I cut out the sentiment part and decided to mount it on white, or maybe kraft, cardstock. Then I heard chickens calling, "Bwawck! Bwawck!"so I embraced the pink and slapped it on there! ha! On the plus side, I do know some cool chicks I could send this too! 

Are you ready? Head over to CAS-ual Fridays now to check out the cards from the other Girl Fridays. There's such a range of creativity on how they used the markers, you'll love it! Then go and upload your fabulous creation so you might win a prize from this week's sponsor, Crafter's Companion!


I can't wait to see what your gorgeous creations!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Hugs and happy stamping!

Great idea to colour round the embossing, makes the sentiment panel very distinctive. x

You crack me up Angie! Love the reference to the chicken! I like all the pink because it is broken up by the additional colors and the pink ribbon adds texture!
