CASology Week 375...Spice

Hello and happy Tuesday. It's time for another challenge at CASology.   This week, our cue word is SPICE.  There are many ways you could interpret this word....I went with something pretty straight forward...when I hear the word 'spice', I immediately think of herbs and spices for cooking, so that is what I went with.  

Believe it or not, I actually have a stamp set with herbs from PTI called Herb Garden.  Did you know that in ancient times, thyme was traditionally associated with courage, bravery and strength?  I did not, but love knowing that now.  I made this card as an encouragement card.

I started by sponging a light layer of ink using a stencil to mask off everything but the center of my card.  Some very simple stamping, and my card is done.

I am also going to enter this card at Retro Rubber #144:  Anything Goes (my stamps are from 2017).

Now it's your turn.  How does SPICE inspire you?

As always, remember the following CAS guidelines 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!)

I hope you play along this week.

Please head on over to the CASology blog and gather some inspiration from our Guest Designer, Galina, and the design team.  We are sponsored this week by Your Next Stamp.

Thanks for Visiting
