Guest Designer CASology

I am so honoured to be a Guest Designer over at CASology. It is my first time so I was thrilled when Melissa asked me if I wanted to be a GD as part of the prize for having won their challenge with this card.

Week 251 - Medicine

The theme for this week’s challenge is Medicine and it was not an easy one for me at all as I did not have any medicine type stamps! So I decided to play on the word “Medicine” using the sentiment as the focal point of the card.

I first stamped “Laughter”, using Altenew’s painted alphabet set, with Versamark, before heat embossing it with 2 different Wow Embossing powders, as I wanted it to resemble an Aspirin pill! The rest of the sentiment was made using my Dymo label writer.

I also wanted the card to be funny and it cracked me up to think of an old albeit sleepy owl “dispensing” (get the pun?) advice about laughter. So I used the cute little sleepy owl stamp from Create A Smile and coloured it with my Zigs.

The purple lines representing a tree trunk was a last minute addition when I realised I had stained my card! I then cut the sides of my card with my fancy scissors to add some interest.

So I hope you got a small laugh or at least a smile from my card and do go over to CASology and play along with us!

Thanks for stopping by and I love reading all the kind comments you leave!
