CASology 148 - Story


This week's CASology Cue Card is Story.



I've had these two stamps forever and I've made a number of wedding cards with them over the years. I tried something different this time. I stamped the Stampin' Up castle in soft grey, off the edge, so that there would be plenty of space for my long Verses sentiment and still plenty of white space. I created a mask for the castle and then sponged some soft blue and green around the edges for a hint of colour.

Now it's your turn to tell us your story! Make sure to check out the rest of the DT blogs for more inspiration!

This is one INCREDIBLE wedding card! I absolutely love it! So impressed with your sponging mask....there is a whole lot of detail to snip around!

Too true! Can see why you have gotten so much use out of this sentiment and stamp. Must remember that masking and sponging for backgrounds. Subtle, but so effective. Beautiful card.
