Hello and Welcome
I was thrilled to be invited as Guest Designer for CASology this week! Their cue card for the week is EARTH! It will be very exciting to see how you interpret this cue!
It took me a while to decide how interpret the cue, EARTH, on a CAS card.
My first thought was ‘earth’ as in soil – which has such a vital role in supporting life on Earth!
I started with the largest Quadrangle Frame die cut from SSS Stamps, using the black frame and a white inner section.
On the inner piece, I stamped a couple of small floral images from Hero Arts January Monthly Kit for 2019. Using Distress Ink, I water coloured them, along with the sky and the soil (earth) around the plants.
I also selected the watering can image from the same Hero Arts set, and a flower pot from an old Hero Arts wood block stamp which were water coloured and fussy cut.
The frame was then added to the card front, and then the watering can and the flower pot were stepped down from the end of the frame.
I put a light wash of colour at the bottom of these, to ground them.
The strip sentiment is from Mama Elephant – Occasional Labels set.
After looking at the card for a while, I felt it needed something to stop the eye running off the card front, so I added a thin black strip towards the bottom.
I was pleased with the way it turned out. I hope you like it too.
I hope you will visit the CASology blog and check out more inspiration from the amazing Design Team.
Thanks so much for visiting
Have a great week
