Another Round of CASology with Lisa!

Hey friends!!  Well... Lisa and I are at it again.  We have challenged each other to make a card using this week's CASology cue word of rough.   I also used the new layout from CAS(E) this Sketch so I will be adding my card to their gallery, as well.  I have been wanting to get some woodgrain cardstock for sometime now and when I was at my local craft store, Artco, I saw that they were carrying Tim Holtz Distress Woodgrain cardstock so I picked up a packaged.  When I saw the cue word it made me think of the woodgrain carstock as it has a rough texture.  I die cut a daisy from the cardstock using an A Jillian Vance Design Daisy Trio die set and then I colored it with a yellow ZIG Clean Color marker (I just can't seem to create a card without them right now!!) and some clean water.  The sentiment (which also fits the rough theme) from the A Jillian Vance Design Get Well Wishes was stamped on black cardstock using VersaMagic watermark ink, I applied white embossing powder and heat set it.  I think I will add the sentiment "I am here for you" to the inside of the card.  The background cardstock is Tim Holtz Motif Resist cardstock and also has a woodgrain texture.  I applied some light grey ink to the resist cardstock for a subtle background for the daisy.  Today has been a weird day with is sort of gloomy, but then sort of sunny.  It made it hard to get a good picture of my card and in most of the pictures you could not see the grey inked background.   Finally I was able to get a good photo this afternoon!





Thanks for stopping by today... I would love to hear your thoughts!  Make sure you check out what Lisa made... I know it will be something super clever!!


Supplies:  Cardstock:  SSS Fog, Tim Holtz Distress Woodgrain and Resist Motif; Inks:  SSS Fog and Smoke, VersaMark watermark ink; Stamps:  A Jillian Vance Design; Dies:  A Jillian Vance Design; Embossing powder:  Filigree white
