You take the cake!
How fun is this cupcake thief? I think I could find myself falling into her line of work very easily. LOL
This week at Mo's Digital Pencil my super sweet AND talented DT sistah, Anja, is our hostess and she's asked for "CAS" cards. Yikey poo! You guys know that I am in the process of learning to do CAS well with my TSG projects. It's definitely an ongoing thing and NOT something I practice on my Mo cards. These are the ones where I raid every drawer of my stash and have a card that's rarely under a 1/2 "-3/4" thick.
I picked the "Cupcake Thief" because I thought it could carry the card all by itself. I have to give credit where credit is due and tell you that a LOT of my inspiration for this card came from two amazing card makers and they are polar opposites of one another in style. The first is Alice Wertz. This lady is a perfect example of a signature style. I never have to guess about who made her cards when I see them. Her style is unique and I sooooo admire her work. She has the ability to make every image she uses carry her cards all by themselves with very little embellishment. You can see her version of this image on a card here.
The second artist is Vili. I just found her blog recently and have been filling up my "Inspiring Cards" Pinterest board with her creations. She uses some of the most unique layouts and designs on her cards and her coloring in out of this world. I got my design idea for having the image on both panels and some of the coloring ideas from her card here.
I know most of you who visit here are not normally CAS card makers, but we'd love for you to challenge yourself and join in the fun at Mo's this week. Just use a Mo image and if you don't have one pop over to Mo's store. You can definitely find a thing or two...or three that you'll love.
