Day 1 of CAS2

I signed up for another online card class, the last one I took was Stretch Your Stamps, I liked the format and the information was valuable.  When I saw Clean and Simple Card Making 2 being offered I signed up.  The instructors are so talented, and willing to share tips and tricks. It is just fun watching them create. I have no clue about clean and simple cards, so this is a good opportunity for me to learn.

Homework for Day #1 was to pick one of 4 sketches and make a card.  The lesson was entitled The Craftsmanship of Clean and Simple Cards.  There was a wealth of information there for me. I thoroughly enjoyed the class. Day 1 was worth the price of admission for me.

I spent at least an hour on this card, which surprised me.  Of course a lot of that was trying to get the misting to work. The class lesson for the card I chose to make used misting and a mask, I have no masks and only 1 mist here on the east coast. So I went for an emboss resist to try to mimic the look. I over misted several times, then finally just went with it.  I like the mist pattern in the center diagonal of the card I think it highlights the sentiments.

Two weeks minus 1 day of homework projects coming up.  Thanks for stopping by.

I like how you used a hexagon window and your spritzed background is just beautiful!

You get an A+ for your first class, Cat! Great card!

Nice work! I sort-of cheated with the mist and just misted the entire front of my card after I colored it.

So pretty! good luck with your class: I wouldn't actually mind having to make cards as my homework!
