The challenge for this week's CAS-ual Fridays is to be inspired by the ocean. I knew exactly what I wanted to do, after reading Maile Belles' article this morning about watercoloring. I stamped the grasses and clear embossed them on watercolor paper, then just put some distress inks on an acrylic block, spritzed them with lots of water and painted on my background color with a big soft brush. Again, I used my favorite current Hero Arts sketch to put this card together. This may be one of the most CAS cards I've ever done, and I like the sentiment with it - this will be a perfect card for my chemo patients or for anyone needing a little encouragement.
