CASology 161 - Plaid




This week's CASology Cue Card is Plaid!



I dug through my stamps and came up with this old Christmas stamp from Penny Black - it's part of Twelve Days of Christmas (11 pipers - I also adore the 3 French Hens image!). I stamped it in Versafine Onyx and embossed it with clear embossing powder before colouring it with copics (I needed a magnifying glass for the plaid!). But then I was stuck for an appropriate sentiment. Alphabets are perfect for times like this! I used LawnFawn's Harold's ABCs.

To finish the card I created 1/8th inch frame around the image and used a black card base. This creates a crisp frame around the card, and provides definition and contrast.

Now it's your turn. Go mad for plaid! And make sure you stop by the rest of the DT for more inspiration!

Great image, Ardyth - really fun! Love the way you used the alphabet to create the sentiment too.....something I should think to do more often, I always spend ages looking for a sentiment that fits :)

Oh my - this just cracked me up! what a great plaid you did on the bagpipes - I thought you paper pieced them - but that probably would have been as hard as drawing it was! TOO cute! Julia xx

The sentiment definitely 'rocks'!!!
