You all did another bang up job on last week’s challenge – amazing work!! Congrats to all the VIP’s and the TGIF Club winner! This week’s CAS-ual Fridays challenge is to create a clean and simple project that measures 4” x 9”. Resist the temptation to fill it and embrace the “white space.”
Not gonna lie – I STRUGGLED with this one! I’m an A2 girl, through and through. It KILLS me to make anything that’s larger than that, especially when it comes to clean and simple designs. Don’t get me wrong – I love “white space.” But oh my gosh there’s a LOT of white space on a 4” x 9” card. But I persevered and actually am EXTREMELY happy with the end result. I worked with the On the Mend set – super cute stuff!! The jar was created using a Spellbinders die set called “Assorted Fresh Fruit.” I die cut the jar three times – once out of acrylic CS, once from black CS and once from white CS. I stamped the sweet little bug on the white panel and colored him with my Lyra colored pencils and Gamsol. I added a few rhinestones to the bug’s bag (to add to the cute factor), and then assembled the jar. It was super easy to create and I had a lot of fun doing it.
