CASology Challenge #267


Hello again ~ I'm back to share a card I created for this week's challenge at CASology. The cue card 'Big' is so much fun because there are so many ways to go with it! I've never been to Paris, but I'm willing to bet the Eiffel Tower is 'Big' and that it would give me a chance to play with my new to me die!



I was determined to keep it CAS so I created a mask with the oval shadow die and sponged it with MFT Grout Gray ink. I used Salty Ocean DI on the tower, lightening the color as I moved upward, and stamped the sentiment in SSS Smoke. A few gems for sparkle and a stitched border and this card was complete :)

This morning, the following video showed up on my YouTube feed and it really made my day...so, I thought I would share it with you ~ Enjoy!




Have a great weekend! Thanks so much for stopping by,






Supplies:
Stamps: PTI - Think Big Favorites #3
Dies: MFT - Eiffel Tower, Oval Shadow Die, Blueprints 25
Inks: MFT Grout Gray; SSS Smoke; DI - Salty Ocean
Gems: Lucy's Things - Ice Cube Jewels

great card - and loved that video - i've been on those British trains and it was so fun to see everyone smiling and happy (usually it's a pretty glum)- what a way to start the day!!! if only there was more of that in the world!

I love your card. Such a fabulous interpretation of the cue word, and really great job keeping it CAS. Loved the video, too. I wish that would happen to me someday on a train. That is my favorite rendition of that song, too--by a Hawaiian musician IZ who tragically died way too young. Thanks so much for playing along at CASology this week.
