Don't you LOVE the SEA?

I do, too! Snow covered mountains, endless fields of wild grasses blowing in the wind, diamonds sprinkled on the ocean -- I just adore all of it.

This is made for Lee's MIUM challenge at STV. It's a CAS challenge. I have issues with CAS because it's SO HARD TO STOP ADDING THINGS. Really! How does one know when to stop? I guess that is how one masters CAS technique. I have a long way to go. (Do you see the invisible glitter swirls? I hope not -- see? I.CAN'T.STOP.)

Direct to Paper (DTP) technique (just pull the ink pad across the paper)
"Enjoy the Sunshine" stamp set from Gina K. Designs
Broken China distress & Memento Tuxedo Black inks
Copic markers BG11 & BG13
Aqua rhinestones and adhesive foam behind the main card layer
Wink of Stella clear marker

Thank you for stopping by ♥

  6. I can not lie.....I DO! And I love your CAS creation! Beautiful color and the design s AWESOME! Well done, missy! xo~

  7. I do love the sea - just don't see it very BUT - we go up to Lake Superior in the summer, and that lake, being the largest fresh water lake in the whole entire world, seems like the sea to me. But, sadly, there is no salt water.
    I love your CAS card. You have mastered that technique beautifully! And that is no small feat. CAS is one of the hardest things for me to do. Your color is just gorgeous, and I love the way you have just swiped it across the card and then stamped that boat on top. And just a little touch of glitter and those gems to top it off. Stunning my dear, simply stunning!!

  8. I must confesss I have only seen the sea from the air. But I imagine it to look much like your beautiful CAS card. Thanks for bringing me more reality to my perception. I think you have captured the essence of CAS perfectly, too.

  9. This is so pretty Rosy! You did a beautiful job with this CAS design!
