CASology #197: TEAR

Hello, friends!  I'm here today with our next cue card from CASology.

OK, so this cue can be interpreted in several ways.  "Tear" can be a verb, as in to rip. Or "tear" can be a noun, as in a tear drop shed when you cry.  I went with the noun and made a clean and simple sympathy card.

I simply colored in the flower stamp with LePlume markers, spritzed with water, and stamped.  I added the sentiment in black dye ink on top of the flower once it had dried.

My Sentiments Exactly "Sympathy Sentiments"
Sizzix Stampin' Up Framed Tulips embossing folder
LePlume markers, water spritzer, watercolor card stock

I can't wait to see how you interpret TEAR this week.  Be sure to link up your card by noon on Monday (Central time). You will also be inspired by the many ways our Design Team and Guest Designer interpreted the cue this week...be sure to check out their blogs, too!
