CAS for the Outlawz


I kind of struggle with CAS cards, so I always check out the Outlawz Sunday CAS challenge and see if I can give it a go.  Okay, it took me all week, but here's what I came up with for their Fantasy (use a mythical creature) challenge.  Well, you can bet there are mostly fairies flitting about, but they mentioned trolls so I immediately thought of the OGRE (only $1.50!) from Bloobel Stamps.  I thought with his cute little hat, he'd be fun on a Christmas card, so I set him in a winter wonderland of torn snow banks (embossed with a snow flurries Cuttlebug die) and added little cardinals (cut from the "birds on a wire punch by MS) to a "magnificent pine" from Memory Box.  the sentiment are stices from Tim Holtz.




Here's a closeup of Ogre.  I've colored him with Copics and added a bit of shading with Prismacolor pencils.  What a HOOT!  He totally cracks me up!  Ready to party he surely is and would be great for a guy's birthday card too, don'cha think?

I'll also be adding him to the DL.Art November Linky Challenge, Left of Center (under the Fairytales or LOC theme), 613 Avenue Create November ATG (#3 of 8),  Aud Sentiments ATG +Sentiment, Scrapy Land ATG + die that Scrapy Land sells, Dies R Us Thankful for Nature, Lil Patch of Crafty Friends #45 ATG (3 of 3), Creative Craft Cottage Christmas (3 of 3) and A Snowflakes' Promise Seasons.
