CASology 138 - Blossom


This week's CASology Cue Card is Blossom!




If you're going to use lots of colour and busy pattern, leaving lots of white space will ensure that your design is still CAS.  I used a tiny blossom from Altenew's Doodle Blooms set, in some of the new bright Ranger Dye Ink colours, plus Razzleberry from MFT. I popped the white panel up, but I could have masked the stamped area, or I could have chosen a strip of DP to achieve a similar look. I finished it with a Papertrey birthday sentiment.

Now it's your turn! I'm sure the gallery will be filled with delightful floral creations this week - we're definitely ready in Toronto for some colours other than white (actually, dirty brownish-grey now, as the snow starts to melt!). Of course, we at CASology love white (space, that is) all year long!

Love the riotous burst of color from your flowers. And, restrained to just that one side panel--such a fabulous idea.

LOVE your design and your awesome ability to match the font style with the stamped images!

Great tip on how to keep a busy design CAS! The ink colors are fabulous! I totally trust your opinion so I'm off to check out these inks as several of my Memento inks are 'fading fast'.
