CAS-ual Friday: Birthday Card by Bibi

Welcome to another CAS-ual Friday with Rubber Dance stamps!

CAS stands for Clean And Simple. In most cases that means using just a few stamps, leaving a lot of white around the stamped images. That part might feel intimidating to many cardmakers, myself included when I tried the CAS style for the first time a couple of years ago. The more CAS card I made, the easier I found it, though. Goes with everything new we try, doesn't it?

For today's CAS card, I've used a stamp that you have never seen before! This gorgeous hydrangea flower with birthday sentiment (and more) will be released on the 2nd of June, so here's just a little nibble ...

I coloured the stamp with watercolour markers, gave it a light mist of water and stamped it on watercolour paper. I filled in just a few petals and both leaves, using markers and a paint brush. For the sentiment, I also used markers on the stamp - but no water for a crisp impression.

This stamp set will be available in the Rubber Dance web shop on the 2nd of June.
Please give a round of applause to Deborah Wainwright for drawing this beauty for me so I could turn it into a rubber stamp!

Set size: 9 x 13 cm. Large hydrangea: 7 x 7 cm.
Deeply etched, red rubber. Retails at €9,75

If you absolutely cannot wait till the 2nd of June,
just pop me an email and tell me you're impatient ;-)

Thanks for stamping by today!

Hugs from Bibi
