MBC #38 + CTS #276 + Seize the Birthday

This card was inspired by the Memory Box Challenge #38, CAS(E) this Sketch! #276 and Seize the Birthday: Beachy Birthday.

I stamped and heat embossed the fish on a watercolor paper panel before coloring them with my Zig Real Brush markers. The sentiment is added after the panel dried. 

For added interest, the blue ocean is painted on the card base before the panel is popped up with foam adhesive.

CASology Week 304: PEARL

Welcome to Week 304 at CASology!

I've had a mother-of-pearl heart shaped button sitting on my desk forever and decided to use it for our  PEARL challenge this week.


The PTI Penned Elegance sentiment was stamped on the panel first, allowing me to cover some of the stencil with washi tape so only a select few hearts were embossed with a pearl finish paste.

The design team has terrific cards this week!

Jacquie Southas (you are here)

Guest Designer: Lynda!

We are looking forward to seeing how PEARL inspires you - just remember to keep it Clean & Simple! You have until 9 AM Monday (CMT) to link your card to the CASology blog.

MIM #324 + CTD #496

I loved Michelle Leone's challenge to add Lots o' Dots for Papertrey Ink's Make It Monday but was limited by my collection of Nuvo Drops. Can I call it a collection if I only have two bottles?

Then I saw the colors for Color Throwdown #496 and started playing with white on white dimension with the dots.


Three images and a sentiment from the PTI What the Doodle: Feather Mini stamp set are added to the panel first. Parts of the largest feather are colored with a Copic marker or highlighted with the Simply White Nuvo Crystal  Drops.
