A PLACE TO START - JULY 2021 CHALLENGE 7 -The Blessings of The Ancestors

 Hello, Crafty Mates!

This month's challenge at A Place To Start is

Craft Your Favorite Holiday/Celebration

I have chosen the birth of a child as my favorite!

Blessings of the Ancestors
This beautiful digital stamp by artist Robert Jackson has been in my digital image stash for almost six months.  This image speaks to me on so many levels.  More now than ever before, I need to believe that each new generation will live free from oppression, free from disenfranchisement, and free from fear. May each generation learn to listen to the voices in the wind, the voices of our ancestors!

I don't do a lot of CAS, I am not so good at it, and technically, this card is not pure CAS.  To fit the true description of Clean And Simple design, more than fifty percent of my face panel (topper) would need to remain totally untouched. Additionally, CAS projects should be designed so multiple cards can be created over a short period of time.  The amount of time needed to stamp, print, stencil, and color the images moved this project way beyond CAS. Not many crafters have been able to master that skill so the definition of CAS has been expanded.

Thanks for stopping by!
