Clean And Simple Challenge #128

I have not played in the CAS (Clean And Simple) Challenge on Splitcoaststampers in a few weeks. I've been missing it. So happy I had time to play today! Yay. I just love the clean, fresh look of CAS with one focal point.


Today's challenge theme is Tags. I thought and thought like Winnie the Pooh when he sits and taps his paw to his head. He says "think think". I love it. Makes me giggle. I was a Nanny and the kids had to watch Winnie The Pooh over and over and OVER. I have parts memorized. Hee.

So after thinking like Winnie The Pooh, I decided to make a jean pocket with a Levis Tag. I love this new released sentiment HAPPY BIRTHDAY from CLEAR DOLLAR STAMPS. This card is going to be for my neice who just turned 15. I thought a daisy in the center would work so I used DAISY DUO from CLEAR DOLLAR STAMPS.

For the pocket I cut my 4 1/4 square card to look like a pocket (with the Still Waters CS on top adhered with removeable tape). I removed the Still Waters top and did the direct to paper technique using Deep Sea Ink Pad by pulling it down the paper at a slight angel using the top of the pad. I let it dry and repeated with Whisper White Craft pad. Then I faux stitched with a white gel pen. Simple.

RECIPE:
Stamps/Images: Happy Birthday, Daisy Duo ( Clear Dollar Stamps)
Cardstock/Papers:Cottonball White, Bee Pollen, Still Waters (Clear Dollar Stamps)
Inks/Markers: Deep Sea (Clear Dollar Stamps), Memento Tuxedo Black (from Clear Dollar Stamps), Whisper White Craft (SU), White Gelly Roll Pen, Tim Holtz Distress Ink Walnut Stain
Accents/Tools:Bee Pollen Crystal Sticker (from Clear Dollar Stamps), Scotch foam tape, Tim Holtz Blending Tool
Techniques:Faux Denim, Faux Stitching, Levi tag, Paper Tole, Distressing

Thank you for visiting me today!
