This week's CASology Cue Card is Green - and the possibilities are endless - money, eco, St Patrick's Day, Kermit, Yoda - it just goes on and on.
My first thought was grass. Although ours has been crunchy and brown for most of the summer, I dream of a lush green lawn that feels so wonderful on your bare feet. I just don't dream of the water bills that come along with that lush lawn! lol!
I used a Martha Stewart punch and Whisper White cardstock for the grass. I coloured the grass with upward strokes of different colours of green copics and then rounded the edges. I found this tee (Michael's OLD, OLD stamp) and the ball and sentiment (unknown). I embossed the ball with white embossing powder to get the dimply texture and popped it up on dimensionals. Then it came time to mount the white panel onto the card. Green seemed to be the obvious solution but I knew I would never match my grass to a solid green cardstock, so I created a grassy border using the copic markers just on the edges of the white card base (I didn't worry about being too messy, because I adhered the white layer on top - I suppose I could have masked it and saved a layer, but the potential for disaster was too high!). My daughter assures me that it looks nothing like grass, but I'm happy with it anyway!
Now, grasshoppers (another green thing!), it's your turn to go green!
