Today, it’s time to move on to CASology’s 101st challenge! It’s still hard to believe 100 challenges have already come and gone!
I started out using a woodgrain background stamp, but just couldn’t make it work for me like I was hoping, so ended up going a totally different route: roasting s’mores around a campfire, something that definitely requires a little wood, right?!
I popped up a panel of kraft on a kraft card base to create a little dimension. I fussy cut the s’more after coloring it with Copic markers. I added star sequins for some simple embellishments and tried to create a bit of a visual triangle with them.
Want to see my clean & simple flops? We all have ’em, don’t we?! Take a look at these:
I’d originally added a woodgrain frame to the kraft panel (still trying to work that woodgrain background stamp into my design…). I finished the card and then it started bugging me. I finally had to go remove the woodgrain from the design. It just didn’t feel clean enough for my liking!
And my original idea that flopped?!
I had this bright idea that I’d layer a woodgrain panel on top of a woodgrain card base, going for the tree look, of course. Well, it ended up looking like a visual mess in which you are lucky if you can even find the sentiment!
So there you have it. I am totally and helplessly human. Thank goodness for a recycling truck that visits our house each week! As Gillian says…It’s just paper!
Don’t forget to visit the design team member’s blogs to see a little more explanation of their designs. They love hearing from you just as much as you love hearing from them!
