CASology Week #84





It's time for a new CASology challenge.  This week, our cue word is PAINT.  How fun is that?  What do you think of when you hear the word PAINT?  I had lots of ideas, and decided to bring my Watercolor Wonder stamps out to play.  They hadn't seen ink in a while.  I was in need of a get well card, so that is what I made.




I knew that my sentiment was going to do most of the heavy lifting on this card.  First, I stamped my sentiment, from PTI Sentiment Signs in the center of my card front panel.  I used the same stamp from PTI Watercolor Wonder to stamp some color right over the sentiment.  I used a die from Love Lives Here to cut a butterfly right out of the center of that sentiment.  I cut the same butterfly out of card stock matching the colors of my paint, glued all 4 layers together, and then put them back into the negative space.  That is my trick for getting everything all lined up when I've got a sentiment or an image that is on different levels.

So, what do you think of when you see the word PAINT?  

Check out the beautiful designs from the CASology Design Team members and see how they were inspired by PAINT.  Then, please play along and link your creation to the CASology blog by Sunday, March 2 by 4PM (CST).

How will you be inspired by PAINT?
