This week's CASology Cue Card is Sprout.
I hate beets. Hate them. But I have a friend who absolutely loves them and it is an ongoing joke between us whenever we're together - especially when choosing a restaurant for dinner. Her birthday is on Saturday and I knew this set would make the perfect card for her.
Sprout is a verb as well as a noun, so I thought I would add a little 'action' to my card, as well as get some mileage from the wordplay on the word 'up' (see how the beet moves up out of the ground?). I masked and sponged some dirt on my square, then added two more layers of dirt. The top one is completely glued down, but the middle layer is open at the top so the beet can slide in and out.
I kept my interactive scene small and surrounded it with white space to keep the whole design CAS. Of course, given our 'difference of opinion' about beets, this guy had to be winking!
