thinking of you...

Hello friends!!  I have a little card to share that involved a rather crazy idea!  I got the idea when I saw the new CASology cue word:  dot.  I pretty proud of my crazy idea because I think it is actually rather clever, too... and generally I don't come up with clever (and crazy) ideas!  I also used the new ColourQ combo of  basic grey, poppy parade, pool party, island indigo and white. 


After seeing alot of fabulous cards made with the Memory Box Small Circle Burst die I finally decided to buy it.  It is a really cool die that is essentially made up of many, many dots... one big dot and many, many teeny tiny dots!   And crazy me thought it would be fun to inlay all those teeny tiny dots back into the image die cut white paper, lol!!   I didn't keep track of how long it took me, but I'm pretty sure it was about half an hour.  To get the teeny tiny dots to stay in place I simple applied scotch tape to the back of the white cardstock piece and then added the dots.  The little bird was die cut using the Memory Box Perched Reed Bird.  One of the left over Island Indigo dots was used for the bird's eye. Pretty darn pleased with the overall look of the card! 

Thanks for stopping by...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white, SU! Poppy Parade, Pool Party & Island Indigo; Die:  Memory Box; Ink:  Memento; Stamps:  Avery Elle

This is one of the most original and clever CAS cards I've ever seen! I can't imagine the precision involved, but the design, colors, and dimension are all FABULOUS!! Love. It.

Oh this is fantastic Rosemary..what do you mean you don't normally have clever ideas?! I'm amazed how perfectly you've put all those dots back - must have taken a steady hand. Thanks for playing along at Colour Q this week!

Rosemary, I love this card. That die has been on my wish list forever and you are pushing me over the edge to buy it sooner rather than later. This is something I would do with this die, even though it takes some time. LOVE the look! Thanks for sharing!!!

These are two of my favourite dies and I love how you used them here! And big bonus points for inlaying all those dots! Thanks for playing along with CASology this week!

LeAnne said...

This is AWESOME! You have a lot of patience! And I wish I had remembered that I had this bird die...I would have used it on a card instead of what I made! So glad you were able to play with the ColourQ challenge this week!
