Staying DRY at CASology

 Hey crafty peeps! We're back at CASology with a new cue card for the next 2 weeks. And after the weather we've had here the last couple of days, this was right on time:

I used a repeating umbrella design, which required a little masking, and some simple ink blending. I added some darker yellow shading to the umbrellas using a colored pencil. Both the umbrella and the sentiment come from a stamp set from Create a Smile, titled Bad Day. To finish it off, I popped on a few clear dew drop embellies and yellow sequins and called it a day! Funny how the light caught that one sequin and made it look green :) CAS cards are supposed to be quick and easy, but that doesn't mean they can't have some pop!

Tip: When layering stamps using masking, remember that the images you stamp first will be in the foreground and fully visible at the end of your project. You can use that concept to create real depth to your cards.

Be sure to check in on the other DT members and how they used the cue card! There's some really fun ideas to get you going. And please be sure to link up a card you've made - we LOVE giving away PRIZES from our awesome sponsors!
