CAS #1

CAS is not my usual style but sometimes its nice to make a quicker card! Both the below card and this one are from Annabelle stamps and coloured with Copics.

This is Lil Monster Valentine (although I used him for a birthday card):
Elizabeth Whisson, Annabelle Stamps, Lil Monster, happy birthday, CAS, copic

I am entering this card in:
1. Annabelle stamps challenge AC175 - a sketch
2. Simon Says Stamp - Monday Challenge - Anything Goes;
3. As you like it - favourite CAS design - as I said at the top of my post, I'm not big on CAS cards but this design has appealed to me and I made a few cards using this design over the weekend (didn't post them all!);
4. Through the craft room door challenge - Anything Goes;
5. Papertake Weekly Challenge - New Year New Stash - Both of the Annabelle Stamp sets that I've used on this card are new to me - got them for Christmas :-) ;
6. Creative Craft Challenges 2 - New - these two stamps sets that I've used on my card are new to me - got them for Christmas; and
7. Incy Wincy Designs - Add Texture - I used the Copic colourless blender to give Lil Monster's "hair/fur" texture and have added liquid pearls to the sunflower and glossy accents to the bow on the present.

Some more photos:
I used the Copic colourless blender to create the texture on Lil Monster's "hair/fur". I would normally apply it using a cloth or some type of material but this time I just used the brush nib and pressed down in little rows of "rectangles".
Added liquid pearls "pumpkin" and "buttercup" for texture on my sunflower. I also added glossy accents to the bow on the present but it didn't photograph very well.
