Challenge #13 at Perfectly CAS ........

Happy Sunday evening ......

I do hope you've enjoyed your weekend.  It's been Mother's Day here (another one in lockdown) so I hope all you lovely Mum's out there have had a fabulous day. 

It's time to get the next Perfectly CAS Challenge underway ...... you know, the one where you use one third of your card space.  
If you find the Clean and Simple (CAS) style hard to create, then using a third, or less, of your card space makes it really easy to leave all that white space.  Less is definitely more for this challenge!

It's challenge #13 and the theme is a nice easy one ....... Birthday!

You don't get much more Clean and Simple than this ....... and it's one layer too!!

I do love these stamp designs from Anita Jeram for the Colorado Craft Co., they're all sooo cute, especially the bunnies!

I stamped the bunny in the centre of my card, using a grey ink instead of black as I wanted a softer, more hand drawn look ........

I then used Faber Castel Polychromos colouring pencils to colour him in.  

I need to practice more using these. I love them but, I can sometimes be a bit heavy handed with them.  They do blend beautifully, and as you can see, the card I used has a little bit of texture to it and the colouring pencils have brought this out which I like, especially on the bunnies fur.

I stamped a sentiment from the same stamp set underneath, keeping everything in that centre third column of my card

And I finished with just a touch of shading underneath the bunny, just to ground him.

Now it's your turn.  Check out the Perfectly CAS Blog for more inspiration from the rest of the Design Team and then join in the fun.  See you in gallery!

Thanks for popping by ..... enjoy the rest of your day.
I'm off to put my feet up and enjoy a nice glass of something chilled ...... I've earned it!  
Cheers! ............ Happy Mother's Day xx
