CASology #47


Welcome to Week 47 of CASology!  Here's the cue word for this week:


When I started looking for wheel images in my stamp collection I realised that I have an awful lot of bicycle stamps that have never seen ink including pretty much this entire set from Hero Arts.  What better time than now to give the set some love!  I wanted to go super simple with a splash of colour so I pulled out the WPlus9 So 80s set (sadly discontinued) and rock and rolled this...  paint splodge?... in some neon-esque colours.  Then I stamped the bicycle over it, added a fitting sentiment and was on my way.  I think this qualifies as one of the quickest cards I've ever made!  Now, get those wheels in your brains spinning and show us your fabulous creations.  But first - check out the gorgeousness created by the rest of the DT:


  

And this week's guest designer:

This is such an amazing card. Simple, but packed with action. I think I have that same set--perhaps I should use it too (crazy talk)

It might be one of the quickest cards you've ever made, but it is definitely one of the most awesome! Old School and Cool with that bike and the on-trend splodge ... I love it, Jen!!

Bikes are such fun images, and I have many of them, too. Need to get them out. This is a real inspiration - love the splash of color!

Gorgeous, Jen! The bike I had as a kid was a bit like this one. :-) I must fit the "old school and cool" label, LOL!
