Caardvarks CAS Challenge - Part I

Happy Thursday! Caardvarks started a new challenge and is sponsored by no other than Hero Arts! Every stamp of the prize package is on my wishlist! Sigh. Ok, here is my first (and not the last!) entry to the Clean & Simple Challenge:

I stamped the beautiful flowers from the "Delicate Blossoms" (my current favorite stamp set) onto rustic cream cardstock and colored them with Distress Inks spritzed with water. Here is a close-up of the flowers:



There were traces of some perfect pearls in my mister, so the flowers have a very subtle shine. The pearls are Kaisercraft, the sentiment PTI.

Off to make more CAS cards! Thanks for visiting and have a sunny day!

Hugs,
Vanessa
