Going CAS

My box of 10 kraft cards is done! This last pair of cards is actually what I originally planned for the first pair, wanting to enjoy the beauty of crackle paste and some simple background stamping in black. I am posting these cards for the Country View April challenge (kraft) and the SimonSaysStamp challenges Wednesday (CAS) and Monday (Anything goes).

I especially like this one with the TCW cornflower stencil and a text background.

The branch stencil was more difficult to handle than the cornflower: some paste seeped under the stencil smudging the image. I guess the different orientations of the openings in the stencil have something to do with it. I decided to colour the smudges with a Distress Marker (Brushed Corduroy), the other option would have been to layer a sentiment over it. I guess I can live with it -everything doesn't have to be perfect :)

Since I have two children whose teachers will change after this school year I think a box of cards might end up as a gift at the end of this school year. The other cards in this set can be found under the following links: 1+2, 3+4, 5+6, 7+8.
