Pretty Roses by Sheepski

Hello, my sweet blogging friends!
Hope you are doing well, and enjoying all your endeavors.

It's my very great pleasure to Guest Design for SheepSki Designs this month!

The Facebook Challenge lasts from April 20 until May 19. 
Challenge 23 has an Optional Twist of "Use Only Two Colors" 
(but can also have black, white and skin tones).
Come join in the fun!

Andrea's very lovely Wild Roses Image was pure joy to play with!


I opted for CAS - Yes, I know it's not really CAS because it has layers, and not very much white space, but for me, it's as close as I can get. But I'll keep on trying. It certainly helped working with an image so thoroughly lovely.

Colored with Copic Markers, and distressed with Mowed Lawn ink, this card sports a very old butterfly punch coated in Sunny Daze Glitter and a VIRGINAL Spellbinders die set called Venise Lace 5x7. 
This image has been flipped both horizontally and vertically:

Also used on this card is...

My very first stamp set!
(available digitally as well)

Thanks for dropping by today. I hope you'll be able to join in the challenge!

Hi dear Donna,

This card is very pretty and rather clean and simple to my mind. The flowers and ornate nestie look lovely together.
Hope you are well, my friend.

Lots of love,

A fabulous card Donna, such a pretty image and beautiful colouring. I have to admit that your design is not what I would call CAS but it is certainly quite CAS compared to your usual designs.
I hope you are well.

Oh, sweet Donna, this is gorgeous! Yes, it's as CAS for you as it comes, but that's where the Clean And Simple comes from. Cleanly elegant and simply gorgeous! Congrats on the guest designing for this month, and wow! I love the beautiful wild roses and how you've colored them, and how you've framed them is amazing and so gorgeous! I love the elegant sentiments...a special friend. Very sweet and lovely for a dear friend. Beautifully done, sweet Donna, and you have certainly made these images shine so beautifully! Hugs and love! xoxo

Nana Connie said...

WOW, Donna, what incredible coloring, my friend! I love the die you chose for framing the image and that sparkly butterfly is magnificent. Beautiful work on the Swiss Dot background and you did such a great job on the out-of-the-box cutting for the rose. I love everything about this one, especially the "CAS". lol

Donna, this is beautifully CAS... to those of us who can't quite go CAS all the way. I do try, but love to play with all styles. What a beautiful image and gorgeous die. Hanging my head to confess I still have so many virginal dies, as well, but working on it. Your coloring is exquisite! You're so good!

Becky said...

Stunning card. I love the open spaces, which allow the image to shine. And congrats on your sentiment stamp set. It's beautiful.
