CCC #86

IMG_4007


We have a new Cue Card for you ready at CASology for this week.




This one had me scratching my head at first, but then I thought to me my roots are my Mom. She has been there for me since the very beginning and she is still where I go when I need advice.  I used the pigment and dye ink layering technique for my flower. I did this to add some depth to my CAS design using one smaller focal image. It is really lovely in person as you can see the white pigment flourish on the card and you can see it carry into the flower.

Head on over to CASology today to learn what the 'cue card' means to you, how you can play along and see the all the cards created by the Design Team to inspire you.



Tracey McNeely (that's me)

Guest Designer:  Claire

I can't wait to see what ROOTS means to you!

***PLEASE NOTE!***


In order to give participants more time to play along we are extending the deadline for entries to Mondays at noon (Central Time).  Due to this extension we will be announcing our winners and honorable mentions on Tuesdays at 7:00am (Central Time), one hour before a new challenge begins.  Challenges will begin at the same time as usual, 8:00am (Central Time) on Tuesdays.

The ink looks so cool on this. I was wondering how you did this! It almost looks marbled - really pretty Tracey!
