Hello my friends! It's time for another Paper Nest Dolls challenge. The theme for PNDC #12 is 'CAS Card' Challenge. If you're not familiar with what a CAS card is it stands for Clean And Simple. It's the type of card that doesn't include a ton of embellishments, etc. I like to think of it as a card that would be easy to replicate if need be. The challenge begins today, 9/2 and ends on Friday 9/13....oh no....a Friday the 13th...oh well, I wish everyone good luck when it rolls around.
What's a challenge without prizes - there are 4 winners in total for each challenge - 3 winners chosen by our design team and these winners get one free PND digi of their choice (which let me tell you will be hard to pick since all the images are so darn adorable) - and 1 randomly chosen winner who will receive this awesome prize package
The image I chose for this challenge is 'Groovy Owen'. When I saw this image I remembered a stamp set I have from The Stamps of Life called 'Pray4Peace' and it has some great sayings and wonderful peace signs and I thought to myself 'Groovy'. I tried to do a tie-dyed shirt but I couldn't seem to get it right - so I ended up with a yellow and orange rounded stripey kind of shirt.....sometimes you just gotta step outside your comfort zone and go for it. The stripes behind the image are made with washi tape from Michaels that's an inch thick - I LOVE the wide width. Since washi tape sometimes has an transparent quality, I placed it on top of some leftover orange cardstock so it shows up a bit better. He is colored with COPIC markers (see below for complete list). Even though Owen is all boy, I did add a little bit of Stickles to the heart and the additional black peace sign. The cardstock used is from Bazzill Basics Paper 'Two Scoops' collection and it's called 'Orange Sorbet'....I took a distress block and rubbed it along the pattern until the color underneath popped through.
Here's a close up of Mr.Groovy!
