CASology #341 Turquoise

Hi there!

Welcome to my post for the CASology challenge this week. We have a colorful cue word this week and it is “Turquoise”.

Week 342 - Turquoise

This is one of all time fav colors and always love interiors in Turquoise. I love the combination of  Turquoise with white that inspired by take…

Here’s my take:

Let me tell you the lovely story behind making this card. Well i knew i wanted to use the alcohol inks for my design so i had them on my desk and i wanted to make a card for my brother, so i had the “Hello” word die by Winne & Walter  as well as the stamp saying ” Bro” by Penny Black on my desk too.

Just when i began to make the card i realized i did not have any Yupo paper to use the alcohol inks. I started looking for stores in India that hold the stock of Yupo paper and was somehow not able to find any online. So i turned to Instagram for help.

I asked fellow cardmakers and crafters to point me towards store with yupo paper and i got quick and overwhelming help. And then i discovered a craft store called Beyond inks. They hold such beautiful stock of alcohol inks and yupo paper i had to order some immediately.

Thanks to the quick delivery by Beyond inks i could make my card before time and thanks to the resourceful crafters online i got help in time.

Now it’s your turn to jump into action!

I hope my card inspires you to join us at CASology and gets you to crafting. Do  play along with us, just remember to keep it CAS. The following CAS guidelines should be of help when creating your design:

  1. One main image
  2. Lots of open space, uncluttered
  3. Limited layers & embellishments
  4. Quick & easy to recreate (Note: It may take a while to create a design you like, but once you have that design, making more should be a piece of cake!)

  1. Isn’t this just the best community of card makers? I’m so glad you got the help you needed, Bharati. It was worth it because that big ‘hello’ is beautiful done in alcohol inks. Nothing else is needed (except for the tiny ‘bro’) 😉 Thanks for sharing your card with us at Addicted to CAS.
