CASology #5 - Pond

This week's cue card at CASology  is "Pond"

Oh dear, everything I could find in my craft box with a pond theme really didn't lend itself to the Clean and Simple style!

Then I rememberd an old Linda Luckin stamp that was tucked away in my "semi retired favourites" box, the place where old friends live until I decide to revisit them. So out it came. I brayered a background in shades of blue then stamped the image over it in Memento ink and cut it out.

All the card needed to was a little border in the same shades of blue, inverted to stop it from looking too bottom-heavy.


The snag is, now I've started looking through my box of old stamps, I want to bring them ALL back into use...... and I just don't have the space!

  1. Don't let the stamp companies hear you - but I agree that shopping your own stash yields marvelous possibilities! Love the drama of the stark black on the varied blue background - thanks so much for playing along with CASology this week!
