CAS cards challenge april

Hello there! So how many times have you already been fooled today? We're back with a new CAS card challenge at STAMPlorations and it's no joke. 

Here's the April CAS Cards challenge inspiration.

As always the challenge is anything goes with an optional color twist - this month is lemon yellow and I just had to go with the lemon yellow color (as I create these cards in Feb and am really ready for bright and sunny days). And why not go with lemons too? Though I must admit both my cards this month are pushing the limits of CAS ...

Today's card.

STAMPlorations Layered Citrus stamp
Zig clean color real brush
embossing powder

So I had this idea to use the lemons and do some black heat embossing and some white heat embossing. In my reminder post you'll see the white embossed design. It's amazing what different looks they have.

I tried something different here. Instead of using the layering stamps to color the lemons, I swiped color inside the embossed areas with a Zig marker (light yellow inside, brighter yellow for the skin) and then spritzed the entire panel with water. Let the water activate the color. Tilted the panel a bit this way and that and voila! Looks like sloshed on watercolor.

CAS card tip: Although kinda busy, by using only one color and still maintaining a lot of white you can achieve a sorta clean and very simple design ;) 

For more inspiration with this stamp set (and a real CAS card) check out this post.

I'm looking forward to your CAS card creations this month! Your project might be chosen as the winner of a GC to the shop. Check out how the DT was inspired by this month's photo here.
