A Bit Of CAS With Penny Black

Good evening all you lovelies. First I would welcome & send hugs to all my new followers thank you sooo very much I really appreciate it.
 I thought I would make something with a new image tonight 1 I've had a while & not got around to stamping up but I fancied a change I like to use different stamps or I get bored & there is soooo much choice out there.
Anyway there is a new challenge called
'Less Is More'
Basically its all about CAS.....clean & simple....
Boy was this hard I dont do CAS.....what I class as clean & simple isn't so tonight I've made 1...well its the closest I have got to CAS anyway so here it is....

Here is my little Penny Black which I got from here.
Apparently CAS is mainly all white background well I had to add the ribbon & gems....this little hedgehog made me do it.....he said he wouldn't blow me anymore hearts........what do you do???

These little fella's are soooo easy to colour. I coloured the hearts with Copics & coloured the hedgie-hog in Prisma pencils. I added some glossy accents to the hearts to give them some dimension.

Well what do you think of my CAS............I'm not too sure I dont think I will be doing a lot of these altho these Penny Black stamps do make it very easy to do you never know.
I've only just come into blogland I havnt been on since about 7 I've just been that busy......some-one is stealing my hours again!! Anyway when I came on & went to my dashboard the top post thing was a challenge & all I could see was my card........yes I won right here with my WOJ Ben & Nora card woo hoo I'm so chuffed lol.
Well I'm off to link up then I'm off to bed Natalie is asleep before midnight yayyyayyyy doesn't happen very often so I'm making most of it.
However I have had a few people asking me about the boxes I send my cards in & if I would do a tutorial. I was going to do 1 this week but the fabulously talented Rach has done a tute so instead I will put a link in the Crafters Tutorials page at the top of my blog & you can pop over to see Rach's tute.....have a look at her cards as well..........OMG she is amazingly talented its through seeing her cards that got me into Copics to be honest lol. She is awesome.
Thank you sooo much for stopping by I loves ya all mmwah
Challenges I'm Entering....
