Just a Note


Hi everyone.  Thought I'd make another card for the current CAS-ology challenge ...


For this card, I sprinkled brushos onto mixed media paper and then spritzed with water.  I soaked up the excess moisture with some paper towel, and ended up with this subtle and colourful background.  Love the look!

Wanted to keep it very CAS, so added a large music note that I die-cut with my Silhouette Cameo, along with a simple sentiment.

Hope you'll check out the CAS-ology challenge and play along.

This is also for the Happy Little Stampers Die-cuts (or punches) challenge that is running until the end of May.







Stamps:  A Little Sentimental (Clearly Besotted)
Paper:  White card base (Neenah); Mixed Media paper (Strathmore); Black card stock (SU!)
Ink:  Black (Memento); Brusho crystals - turquoise, lemon, orange
Accessories & Tools: water mister, musical note cut with my Silhouette Cameo

Challenges:
CAS-ology #146 - Music
HLS May CAS Challenge - Die-cuts
