I think my usual style is fairly clean and simple but CAS category cards are extremely so. I think you really do have to have the vision clear before you start ... not like other styles where you can play and jiggle until you get what you want.
Image stamp: Rubbernecker
Sentiment stamp: HeroArts (part of a stamp)
I heat embossed the stamps and coloured the birds using distress inks as watercolour paints - the blue-green-purple bird is actually more colourful than shows in the photo, don't ask me why, the green didn't even show up (Mermaid Lagoon, Broken China, Dusty Concord plus Lipstick Red for her beak of course!).
