CAS Men's Card

It's my Uncle's birthday tomorrow and his hobby is painting so I wanted to make a "painted" card for him.  I'm not a painter though so I've used my pencils, but I think the design of this stamp gives the feeling of a painting.


I stamped it onto kraft as this is my favourite paper for using pencils and makes it easy for the white lighthouse to pop out.  I used just faber and castel pencils with only a tiny bit of blending for the sky and the horizon of the sea - over blending on kraft leads to pilling and holes....

Hopefully this is CAS enough for LIM as this will then be another on their road to a 1000 entries this week!

I'm also entering into the photo inspiration challenge at  http://foryourinspirationchallenges.blogspot.com/2011/09/fyi-challenge-14.html
