Welcome to my post for the CASology challenge this week. The cue word is this week is Summer!!
I live in India and the summers here are super hot here. However, they are packed with juicy fruits like watermelons, mangoes, tender palm fruit, musk melon ……. Its a time for holiday from school and fun at the beach or the pool…. I was inspired by all this for my card.
Here’s my take:
I first die cut a white card front from a rectangular die and then stenciled it with distress inks and rays stencil by Crafty scrappers.
I then stamped this adorable hippo biting into a water melon in her beach wear. The stamp is by Neat & Tangles and i colored the image using zig real brush markers.
I then add a few white highlights and drops with a glitter pen before i fussy cut the image
I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set in Black and then adhered the colored image with double sided foam tape.
To complete the card i adhered the whole panel on a deep yellow card base.
So what’s you take on summer? What do you like to do and how is summer in your country. Do share.
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:
- One main image
- Lots of open space, uncluttered
- Limited layers & embellishments
- 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!)
