Hooray.... I am posting up my last CAS card, it has been an interesting exercise in many ways.
I will show you the card then I will tell you my thoughts on the last few days.
Die-cut Blossom (SB). I have used watercolour paper which I painted up in a light wash.
It was finished off with my sentiment.
This is a clean and crisp card which falls within the CAS genre.
There is not much more to say!
And here lies my dilemma....Yes it is attractive, BUT; (there is that preposition again) the card has no movement, no life, no character, it does not talk to me!
The same with the Tulip yesterday....
apart from the striking colour, there was nothing else. I really do not have any pleasure in producing such cards, it is not that I don't particularly like them per-say, it is just that they are simplistic, and I do not mean that there is no effort or talent in making such cards, on the contrary, for me there was twice as much effort put into these 4cards then any shabby-chic I have made, with twice the amount of mental pressure!
Uncomplicated they may be, but for me they are herculean to produce with no lasting satisfaction.
So to conclude; I am not a CAS Diva and don't ever want to be one.
I have enjoyed posting up my efforts and your feed back has had me laughing out loud....with Marcy snorting coffee over her keyboard, and Anne-Marie having heart palpitations to Lisa being tongue-tied; which would be a huge loss to the blog world!!!!
So thank you all for your wonderful comments, but it is back to being an Onion with all my layers from here on in! Ha.
And if any of you put up a CAS challenge, I will not be my usual gracious self, I will snivel, whimper, whine and wail loudly!
