CASology #45: ROYAL


Hello, friends!  Tuesday has arrived, and you know what that means... another CASology cue word!



I decided to walk on the wild side and think "outside the box," instead of going to all the stamps I have that imply royalty (e.g., princesses, crowns).  This time I went with the color royal blue.  I was inspired by this royal blue bandanna pattern:



And here is my one layer card, using stamps from Papertrey Ink:

Materials Used:
Stamps: Papertrey Ink "Mehndi Medallion Mini Stamp Set," "Signature Greetings"
Inks: Versamark Ink, navy dye ink, mid-tone Pool ink, white pigment ink
Other: white embossing powder, navy marker, Liquid Pearls, corner rounder


I hope you join us this week for some ROYAL fun!  Link up your clean and simple card by 4:00 p.m. (CDT) Sunday, and be sure to check out the cards by our wonderful guest designer and design team, too!

  12. Hi Judy,

    I loved your card and like you, I often think of ROYAL as blue or a deep rich purple, which is what I used, (of course) for me card! I always enjoy seeing your wonderful creations and think of you as a very talented and artistic designer!

    We both seem to LOVE many of the same challenges and products...especially Hero Arts, which is by far a favorite for me! CAS cards are also fast becoming my favorite and I'm really enjoying trying to learn how to create them, making this challenge a blast for me.

    Thanks for taking the time to visit my blog and for your very kind comment!

    Hugs,
    Lisa

  14. Wow, Judy, this royal blue is sooo stunning ... the white and dark blue medallions with their teeny pearl centres are so striking against it! Anita :)
