with sympathy...

Hey friends!!  Popping in with a card that I made for the current CASology challenge.  Lisa and I have been  enjoying our little challenge involving CASology so we keeping it going!  I like Jennifer's sketch so much I used it, again, for my card so I'm going to add this to the current Freshly Made Sketches challenge and the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge of stamp it.  Not a lot of stamping on my card... but my sentiment is stamped!  Took me three time to finally come up with something that worked for the CASology cue word of beach.  I have only one stamp set that would work for a beach inspired card, but nothing I tried using that set worked.  So I went fell back on the other beach themed item I have... my Reverse Confetti sand dollar die.   I watercolored some Ranger watercolor paper with ZIG markers in two shades of grey and then die cut the sand dollar and the "star".  Another piece of watercolor cardstock was colored with light blue and light brown ZIG markers to look like the beach and the ocean and once it was dry die cut with the largest tag from the RC Tag Me die set.  The banner layered behind the sand dollar is also an RC die.  The sentiment is from the RC Petals 'n Posies stamp set and was stamped in black ink.  I layered everything up on a white cardstock panel and then mounted it on a kraft cardstock base. 

Hope you have a wonderful day... please stop by Lisa's blog to see what she came up with.  I know it is something clever!!


Supplies:  Cardstock:  SU! kraft, white, Ranger watercolor; Stamps:  Reverse Confetti; Dies:  Reverse Confetti and AJVD; watercolor medium:  ZIG markers; ink:  VersaFine Onyx Black; clear Wink of Stella
