This month the challenge over at Crafter's Companion Challenge Blog is to create CAS cards ~ Clean & Simple. Jennifer Ingle is a pro at that and shares a step-by-step tutorial on how she made this fun CAS card because even on a CAS card, you can make a big statement with some fun coloring!
Here's how Jennifer started ...
She stamped the beer bottles from the Camden Town Male 1 set onto the card panel with Momento Tuxedo Black ink. She used a t-square to line them up or you could use a standard ruler as well. Then she colored all but one of the bottles using Spectrum Noir GB8. She admits she missed the lines a bit, however, a blender pen can clean that up quite nicely after the fact!
Next, she used Spectrum Noir marker GB10 to darken the bottles and add the look of light hitting them.
To finish the bottles, she used an EB5 Spectrum Noir marker and added just a touch to the outer edges. These are not solid lines, but more 'dashes' of color. Then she finished the bottles by going over the entire colored area with my blender pen. The blender adds great texture when used in this manner.
Then she colored the green bottle, using the same method, only in greens ~ CG1, CG2, and DG3.
She then colored the labels on the brown bottles in reds, using CR10 as the lightest color, DR5 as the medium, and DR6 as the dark. For the yellow label, she used CT2, CT4, and GB5. Again, she used the blender and went over them when she finished coloring.
Jennifer finished off the caps by coloring them with a silver pen from Faber Castell for a touch of metallic color. She then stamped the sentiment, matted the panel, and adhere it to the card base! Super easy and a very fun card!
