FLY Away with CASology

Happy Tuesday! I want to invite you to come over to CASology, spread your wings with us this week, and join along with our new cue card.

Rubber Dance Stamps is sponsoring our challenge for the 2nd week in a row (how AWESOME are they?!!) and sent me these two bee stamps, one is smaller and the other, definitely a focal image. 

One of my fave techniques is stamping with only water onto a sponged Distress Ink background (specifically Distress Ink because of how they react with water). It lifts the ink in some areas, darkens it in others, and just gives hints of what the stamp is in some others. 

My sentiment is "Be(e) a dreamer"; I thought it was cool to use the stamp in place of the actual word :) Plus, bees remind me of the summer months and time outside and the red, white, and blue was a nod to the upcoming 4th of July holiday.

Please take some time to buzz over to see everyone's inspiration for the week and say hi to our guest designer and sponsor.

This week's winner will be sent the Textured Feathers stamp set from Rubber Dance Stamps!
I'm also sharing at Rubber Dance Stamps and Fusion Card Challenge.

Hope to see your cards in the gallery this week!
