CTS181 and CASology 206 Work of Art

Hi peeps!  Phew, it's hot....I feel like singing Martha and the Vandella's HEAT WAVE!!  I decided to cool off with some cool colors and the CAS(E) this Sketch sketch and the cue from CASology:


There are some really fun cards in the CASology gallery; I wish I had the creativity that some of these stampers have!  Mine is rather mundane, although I did do some sponging, which I haven't done in a while:

In the next few weeks, I am going to be highlighting some SU colors that I rarely use!  A wee challenge to myself, you could say!  Today I am using Tempting Turquoise....I love this colors, but for some reason, never think to pull it out!  I stamped the little paintbrush from the Hostess Set (last year) Love You Sew in Tempting Turquoise, Marina Mist and Bermuda Bay, then added some speckles and sponging in Soft Sky.  I stamped the sentiment from Work of Art and added the swoosh from Love You Sew on top, as well as some sequins from my stash:

To do the sponging, I just lined up some Post-it Notes, stamped and sponged...easy peasy!  My final touch was to add a little baker's twine bow; I used the one-hole bow technique so that it doesn't slide off my panel.

Thanks for popping in today!

Cassidy made a little pot in Sunday School a few weeks back and we finally had time to paint it!

Have a blessed day!

Love your card today, LeAnne! Those 3 colors are fabulous together! I was just thinking to myself the other day about Tempting Turquoise. I am trying to finally switch over to the foam pads from the old linen ones. This color is at the top of my list to order but it's a color I never reach for. Sad but true. I may have to follow in your footsteps and start making it a priority especially since it's summertime and turquoise is a summery color! The possibilities are endless! Have a great day & stay cool...yes, another hot one!
