Tilda and Edwin AND CAS

Hi and welcome to the Blog Hop where the Magnolia-licious design team is showcasing our efforts at Clean and Simple Cards. It's a litttle hard to get your mind around,but once you get going it's kind of fun!
The hop started at Kerry's excellent blog-Three Clovers Designs, so you may want to start there to be certain you see all the samples. Youwould have arrived here fromthe fabulous Becca at Amazing Paper Grace
I CASEd Kerry for this one. She showed us a similar layout witht he ribbon tags and I used it! Thanks, Kerry! I think I've said before how much I love this Tilda-she is a three season gal! I had her colored up ahile ago when I made another card (I'll check for the post when I get a chance-colors may be listed there!) Many of the new Tildas have bigger eyes. I like that look so when I finished this (older) Tilda I used my black copic pen to enlarge and darken her eyes. It can add a real pop to them. I darkened Edwin's below because they just didn't stamp as dark as I like them. Try it!

I actually made this Edwin card before the Tilda. I think it shows you CAN use dp on a CAS card. I just kept the layers and "scenery" to a minimum. You know I love my dp.
For Edwin I used copics:
E000, E01, E93
BG10. BG72, BG0000.
YG01, YG25
E43, E25
Y17, YR15, YR16, YR18 ( I TRIED to keep the number of colors to a minimum, too!)
thanks for visiting! Your next stop on your travels will be the wonderful
SHARON!! When you're finished, please head to the Magnolia-licious highlites blog for the details on winning a Magnolia stamp! If you make your own CAS card that's what you could win!
I know you'll love what she has to show you!
Have a great day!
Cheryl

Candy said...

Hi Cheryl,
As you are the best colourer I know, your CAS cards stand out a mile......
I like to see the 'star' of the card, so I love CAS. I love the other work too, but it is really wonderful to see our Design Team do this work today.
I also like the eyes bigger - since that is the only expression on the Magnolia's faces ( other than perhaps eyebrows ) I think they ought to be big!
Fantastic work!
Hugs, Candy

Sharon Caudle said...

JoAnn said...

I love both cards. The one with the white backgroung wold make a lovely Holiday Card and I would have never thought you could make a Holiday card and be so CAS. We all have our own wways to what we are usewd to. I like the way you put the other one in with the dp. I love the sitting on a snowflake.

Pam said...

Another beautiful card. Your coloring is so gorgeous. I wish I could get comfortable with my copics. I think they are harder to get use to when you are use to using another medium. I have a mental block called color pencils!
Hugs,
Pam
