CASology #84


Welcome to Week 84 of CASology!  Here's the cue word for this week:


There are lots of possibilities for this week's cue word!  You could use paint on your card or paint related images or paint techniques.  For my card I used paint chips.  I cut thin strips of them and laid them next to each other for a rainbow effect.  The pattern is busy but by keeping the sentiment simple, surrounding it with white space and only adding two tiny gems it still remains an overall CAS card.  And now it's your turn to play!  Check out the amazing designs from the rest of the design team and then join in the fun!




And this week's guest designer:



Link your creations to the CASology blog and remember that submissions are due by 4pm CST on Sunday, 2 March.

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Bazzill
Stamp:  (Sentiment from Word Salad) Paper Smooches
Ink:  (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko
Gems:  Recollections
Other:  Paint chips
