Washi the Day

chautona-card63Fastest, easiest cards on the planet. I seriously did all 4 in about 10 minutes tops. I wanted to play with the idea of the all black and white after doing a black and white spread in my EC planner. So, I did it. Liked it. Then I wondered what colors would look like. So I did that.
Look, they’re not genius cards. They’re not super amazing CAS masterpieces either. They’re just cards. But they’re nice and I like ’em. I won’t make LOTS like this, but if I ever need a card in the space of a couple of minutes, I now know one way to make something that looks good and is fast.

And Leigh Anne (leibetty), I TOTALLY owe you kudos for loving Versafine. I’ve never gotten the appeal. But I keep trying it because I know some people–and you are the one who comes to mind–love it. After this card, I too “get” it. CRISP. Man, that ink is crisp. I never noticed it before.

SC287- Deer-Day

chautona-SC287I had so much fun with this card. It kind of fell together. That’s always nice. Super nice. Love it.

Anyway, I love these new Darice border edges. I added a bit of color to them. I really like how it looks.

So, another sketch down, another card for my friend’s collection. Life is good.
