It’s Tuesday and time for a new cue word challenge over at CASology!  We’ve got a word with more than one interpretation again, so the gallery should be interesting!

I went with the tree related definition, using an embossing folder to create texture.


Darkroom Door is our new sponsor this week and I used images from two of their stamp sets, Feathers and Brushed Sentiments.  I stamped the feather in SU’s Soft Suede before embossing the main panel.  I stamped the sentiment in the same color and cut a banner shape to frame it.  Both the sentiment and main panel are popped up with foam dots for dimension.  Monochromatic color schemes work so well on clean and simple designs!

I hope you’ll stop by and leave the rest of the design team and this week’s guest designer a little blog love this week!  They create such awesome inspiration each week for the CASology challenges!

DT Badge


Don’t forget to link up your own clean and simple creation on the challenge blog by Monday at NOON (CDT) to be eligible to win the prize from Darkroom Door, our sponsor!
