CASology #216: FRAME

Hello and welcome to another week at CASology!  This week’s cue offers tonnes of options:

Some simple matting frames and gives prominence to a small image. I simply spritzed this gorgeous little butterfly stamp after applying two inks – Pumpkin Pie and Daffodil Delight, and stamped it onto some acrylic watercolour cardstock. Once dry, I die cut the image.

I like the way the heavily textured acrylic card traps and pools the ink in areas before it dries, creating a lovely effect.Here it is again, using different colours and sentiments:

  1. Gorgeous set of cards, Hazel! I love the effect of spritzing on the butterflies and your CAS design is stunning!

  2. the pooling of the ink is so cool. I thought at first you had used ombre or some such. Gorgeous in its simplicity! Thanks for joining in at Stamplorations!

  3. Congrats on your well deserved win at Addicted to CAS, Hazel! Please check your email for a note from me 🙂
