Colors of the Mother AFRICA

Hey hey! It's another week with a very cool prompt at CASology

I was inspired by 2 things this week: the Pan-African colors of gold, green, and red and the tribal design aesthetic of Dina Wakely's "Primitive Icons" stamp set. I kept my design along the edges of my card and did some loose watercoloring. I loved the trees, hears and sun rays in this set! The "love" sentiment that comes with it was perfect!

There are some awesome creations from the DT this week, so be sure to take a trip to their pages!

Guest Designer: Claire

I'm also joining at AAA Cards 

Thanks for stopping by!

Peek-a-boo at CASology

This is a fun challenge and I hope you can "see through" our antics at CASology!

Using acetate in a card can be tricky. You have to think about adhesives, the inside of the card, 
how to put your greeting, etc. This always stretching my brain...and tests my photo skills lol.

My secret to adhesives and acetate - use sheets of double-sided adhesive (like Stick-It sheets) or
run embellishments through a Xyron sticker maker. The back side of everything is evenly covered (usually) and looks so much cleaner from the inside :)

I hope you check out the other DT member blogs!

Have a great day!
