Challenge 118

Welcome back to the IKEsWORLD challenges :)  do pop on over to IKEsWORLD to join in the challenge, it is always so much fun and  Ike produces the most amazing stamps, everything from off the wall to cute and fluffy :) :) :)

I love CAS cards but boy are they hard to do.  When I look at ideas for CAS cards for inspiration so many are just beautiful in their simplicity but when I try then look at the end product I feel it is so unfinished and it is such a temptation to add more but then it wouldn't be CAS would it :)

For my DT creation for this challenge I used one of the sock puppet images from the SOCKIES set, such a fun set of images that you just can't help smiling at.  I coloured the image with Promarkers then added a bit of shading and the knitted pattern with Prismacolour pencils.  The image was then cut out ready to go on the inside of the card.  Next I cut a couple of circular strips and coloured them to match the sockie dog and using the smallest of the circles I was working with cut the corner off the card blank.  Only a wee bit of stamping to do, the sentiment and then it was time to assemble.

  2. Such a clever use of the dies to create that unexpected corner window. Thanks for playing at AAA Cards, hope to see you joining in with future challenges too.

  3. I am laughing so hard right now ! When my son was about 10 years old for some unknown reason he started making sock puppets . I have to go and look because this would make a perfect card for him ! Your card is darling ! I have a hard time making CAS cards too.

  5. I love your CAS card. The sock puppet reminds me of a children's show I use to watch when I was very young. A real walk down memory lane, it made me smile! Thanks so much for joining us at As You Like It Challenge this week!
