Guest Designer for CASology

Hello crafty buddies, I'm so excited today as I've been invited to be the

That's what I thought until I realised what the cue word was for the week!

So having scratched my head and tipped my stamps upside down
I came up with a card using 2 'bark' images which I hope fits in at CASology!

I started out by dry-embossing a panel of watercolour card with a
'bark' effect texture before inking over the top in various brown distress inks.
A little spritz and flick of my favourite water and perfect pearl mix before 
die-cutting the top edge with a stitched curve border die. The little puppy
(not barking here) is from the Mama Elephant Playful Pups set along
with the cute sentiment. 

Don't forget to check out the fantastic talent from the CASology DT HERE
I certainly can't wait to see how they've interpreted the Cue word.

I've loosely followed the sketch from this week's challenge at 
CAS colours & Sketches so will pop my card in there too as well
as another entry for the HLS CAS challenge - Water Colour Spritz!

As always thanks for paying me a visit today and I'll catch up with you again soon!
