Happy Tuesday Everyone!  I hope you're ready to stretch your creative side with another challenge from CASology!  We want to see your clean and simple cards with your interpretation of the cue word which is WIND.
I will admit, I struggled with this prompt!  Wind (short sounding "I") or Wind (long sounding "I"), how do you showcase it?  I spent a lot of time just thinking about it and then decided to go through my stamps... and I came up with a few ideas and finally settled on this one...
Yup, just breathe....  it's something we all need to be reminded of sometimes.  No matter how rocky the road, how long the haul, how awful the situation, sometimes we all just need to stop and breathe.

For this card, I started with the Taylored Expressions Masking Rectangle and a large Catherine Pooler background stamp.  This gave me just enough of the flowers without being too overwhelming.  I then added some soft colours with blending brushes using the Masking Rectangle as well.  And surprise!  I didn't use a white base!!

Items Used:
*Cardstock:  Neenah Solar White 110lb; unknown yellow
*Images:  Catherine Pooler Doodle Garden; Altenew Bad Days Happen
*Ink:  Versafine Clair Nocturne; Catherine Pooler Tiara, It's A Girl
*Tools:  Taylored Expressions Masking Rectangle; Misti; Life Changing Blending Brushes

  1. what a fab idea-I hadn't thought of that, so cool we all came up with such different ways to express this. I like the idea of 'Just Breathe' and looking at your gorgeous card just puts you in the moment to take a breath and relax! I love the subtle colours and love to see a coloured base x
