CASology’s cue word this week is Friend, and the very generous DeNami Designs is sponsoring us. If you haven’t had the chance to check them out, they are well worth the look, with loads of fun stamps and accessories!
Sky’s the limit with this cue word! It’s why we make cards, isn’t it? Anyway, it reminded me of the following old saying:
“Come and share a pot of tea. My home is warm, and my friendship free.”
Nothing beats sharing a pot of tea (or coffee) with a dear friend. Perfect partners!
This is a small card – 4″ x 4″, so there is a danger of over-crowding.
By just ‘outlining’ the teapot and tea-cup in mono-chromatic tones, you preserve that lovely white space, and keep the emphasis on the glossy red love hearts – the key message I wanted to convey. Stamping off the page can also help to keep things CAS without compromising your message.
And that’s it! Hopefully, your mind is brimming with ‘friend’ ideas! Looking forward to seeing them in the gallery!
