CASology Guest!

Excited to be guesting for CASology for their new challenge starting today! I always check the CASology challenges, almost always mean to play... and too often, miss the deadline. (One week challenges are not for procrastinators, obviously.) But Melissa and the CASology team were nice enough to invite me to guest with them today, after winning late last year for this card (the second one). I'm also excited that the new cue card is right up my alley! 

The CASology team are experts at classic CAS designs. So I decided to go all out and attempt a one-layer card:

I cut a square out of a large post-it note and used a stencil brush with my ink so my colour would stay light. Then it was a simple matter to ink the cat and the sentiment in the same colour! The idea came from these cards by Lydia that I pinned ages ago. 

Since that was truly clean and simple - and QUICK! - I made one more, this time with a layer...

Exactly the same process, except switched up the colour and sentiment with a slightly narrower panel to pop up on fun foam with a sliver of matching blue cardstock showing. 

I can't wait to check how the rest of the CASology team interpreted the current cue card, and hope you will check them out too. And then play along! 

Supplies: Neenah white & scrap blue cardstock, Impression Obsession Mini Cat & Clearly Besotted Message Me stamps, bundled sage & blueprint sketch distress inks, fun foam

Pin It Now!
