New CAS Challenge on SBP Challenge Blog

There's a new challenge at SBP. At first I thought, CAS-Clean and Simple--how simple can that be? BUT the guidelines are to start (and finish) with a white cardstock base, using the image, ink, no embellishments, no layers!!
Hmm, tying my crafting hands behind my back? I accept that challenge! First, I printed this too-cute digital image from Creative Bug Designs. It's called "Twinkle Toes" and I can't tell you how much I wanted to put glitter on those shoes, but "challenge on!"
Once I colored my image with Copics, I used Tim Holtz Bundled Sage Distress ink on the edges. Then I used a Halloween-themed border punch, coloring behind the bats with my black Copic for contrast.
And that's my CAS card for the SBP Challenge. Creative Bug Designs is the guest sponsor, and they are offering a prize package of five digital images from their store.
Here are the challenge guidelines:
  • Create a Basic CAS card in any theme. No layering, no matting, embellishments, no heat embossing or dry embossing allowed on this card. You will create a Card only using White Card Front Base, Ink Pads and Rubber Stamps or digital stamps.  
  • You are welcome to combine your entry with other challenges.
  • New projects only - no back linking. Limit three submissions per person.
  • Link your project post to the challenge blog, not your entire blog link. If your project is not linked, it will not be counted in the random drawing
  • Include a link back to this blog in your entry post. If it is not linked back, it will not be counted in the drawing.
  • One random participant will win five digital images from CBD of their choice.

And just to show you how easy this really is, I also made a totally digital card using the same CBD image, Twinkle Toes. Using PhotoShop, I used a water color painting I had created a few weeks ago as the background for my card.
Then I copied Twinkle Toes onto my "scene" and printed it out. I colored her with my trusty Copics, and used a white gel pen to highlight my witch's "take off."
Just one layer, but what a layer, huh?! So now it's your turn. Whether traditional or digital, have fun with your project and then link it up with the SBP Challenge post for your chance to win some excellent Creative Bug Designs images!!
Good luck!!
