Testing...1,2,3 - Hambo Hoedown

I am pretty sure this thing is on, but you never know! : ) It's Wednesday and time for another Hoedown!

This weeks challenge is a CAS.  You all know how I LOVE those, so this was right up my ally!  Lot's of white spaces... which scares some who always use lots of panels and embellishments.  Not me.  I just love the look of white spaces.  Did I mention I love it? lol! Here is my card using Microphone.

Lot's of white with a touch of pattern and black.  I used some DP from Paper Studio of some old advertisement print layered on black.  I then punch out a circle for the white panel to pop up and place the sentiment on the inside for dimension.  The black circle was made using two different size punches for a thin round piece to add along the edge.  The top sentiment was cut out into a fishtail and popped up.  The image is colored with Copics.  I will tell  you, I always struggle with using my greys and blacks to color a large image such as this.  In all my Copic classes I have taken, definitely one I have not mastered yet.  More practice for sure! : )

Be sure to join us at the Hoedown and see what the other Bacon Bits have created! Don't forget to upload your card for you to earn your free digi!  Thanks for stopping by!
