CASology Week 241: MELT

Welcome to Week 241 at CASology!

STAMPlorations is our sponsor this week and generously provided a few of the Design Team members with stamps or a die for our MELT challenge. Shery sent me one of her own designs, Holiday Expressions: Yuletide Cheer, and this adorable image and the late winter storm last week helped me come up with the idea of a snowman repeating the mantra "let it snow" while hoping to avoid the winter melt into spring.

The snowman was stamped and masked on a white panel, with a sketchy black line added to ground the image. The mask allowed me to add a very subtle inked blue sky before adding a few aqua and red details.

The sentiment was added three times onto a thought bubble die cut and popped up over the stamped panel.

For more terrific ideas, check out the Design Team cards!
