How they describe CAS:
- clean (uncluttered) cohesive design
- must include white "or open" space (no pattern)
- minimal layers and embellishments
I think this qualifies, seeing as how CAS refers more to the design than to how much time you spent getting it that way.
Santa is colored with Copics and cut out. I added white pearl pen sprinkled with microfine glitter to his hat and coat trim. I isolated each "Ho" in the sentiment and circle punched -- 1/2", 5/8", 3/4". Layered each punched circle onto a second circle for dimension, then lightly colored with a blue Copic and added Glossy Accents. Arranged the circles to suggest Santa's laughter is receding into the distant mountains. A sentiment is not considered an embellishment, but it sort of turned into an embellishment, didn't it?

Gosh, this was fun. Fingers crossed that I'll be back soon. Glad you stopped by!
