CASology 142 - Sweet


This week's CASology Cue Card is Sweet!



I went sweet 3 ways - I used the word (Paper Smooches Sugar Rush stamped in HA Soft Granite), colours (pastel Copics), and shape (meant to look like candy dots by using  a Simon Says Stamp die of a row of dots, coloured, inlaid back into the panel then coated in Glossy Accents).

We can talk CAS forever - there are lots of debates and lots of opinions about it, but for me, it always comes down to one main component - white space. In fact, I believe if you have enough white space, your 'clean' will allow you to cheat a bit on the 'simple' and give leeway for a little bit of colour, pattern, texture (or all of them!).

Now it's your turn! Show us how sweet you can be!

Before you go, make sure to get some inspiration from the rest of the design team:

Whenever I color dots with my copies they don't look that smooth or perfect! Do you have any tips for me?

Hey Ardyth!! As usual your card is amazing. I love the dots in a row. I have that die and wondered what do I do with it. Now I know!! Super Sweet!!
