'Believe in Christmas' CAS #1 with Blockheads Paper Arts!

Hello Everyone!

It's Technique Challenge time again over at Blockheads Paper Arts!  This month we challenge you to create Clean and Simple (CAS) creations!  This technique is definitely a fan favourite but we know some of you really struggle too so don't worry coz Karen has a great CAS Tutorial for you and we, the design team, have some fabulous projects to inspire you too!  The challenge ends on Nov 21 so you've got plenty of time to play!

I've got two projects to share so far, one now and the other in a few days!  I've got a few more up my sleeve too so stay tuned ;0)

This one is "Believe in Christmas" CAS #1

I enjoyed being as minimalistic as possible with this one and clever with my image at the same time ;0)  I used a Blockheads medallion stamp from their Ancient Ornaments set and the word BELIEVE from the Verses full sheet for my design and stamped them in Tuxedo Black Memento ink onto a white folded blank card.

I drew in the line with a Copic Multiliner and turned the medallion image into a Christmas bauble...clever hey :0)  To give my design more of a festive feel I added the bow made from baker's twine.

So festive, so Clean and Simple and so much fun ;0)

I hope you'll come and play with us over at Blockheads Paper Arts for the chance to win two awesome prizes!  You can enter the Blockheads Blog Hop part of the challenge and be in the running for a $25 gift certificate to their onlline store or share your creations on their Facebook page for the chance to win a 4 x 5.25 inch stamp set of your choice!
