Clean and Simple Penny Black

This past week the Penny Black blog has featured Halloween cards made by Jean Manis in her signature Clean and Simple style.  I love CAS cards, but don't always manage to keep things clean and simple!

51-067 World of Wishes; 30-251 Nature's Gift; 30-261 Nature's Friends; 40-335 Fall Flutters

I made the background using Distress inks applied thickly with the distressing tool.  I created the "shooting star" effect by first drying the background well with my heat gun.  I then used a baby wipe to make spots of the "sky" a bit damp.  I sprinkled a tiny amount of white embossing powder on the damp spots and used the heat gun to emboss.  Several of the transparent sets in the recent Winter Wonderland release can be used to easily create really interesting "scenes", such as this one.

Even though the wintry scene has a lot going on, I think all the white space makes this card eligible for the CAS title!

See more of my CAS cards on the Penny Black blog today where I am running with my scissors.
