CAS●ology: sweet

This is post 2 of 3 for me today..Click HERE for Curtain Call & Click HERE for Seize the Sketch



Super excited to announce that I'm this week's guest designer over at



Here's the new challenge:


What comes to your mind when  you hear the word contrast?

Oh boy, I struggled with it because I was so overwhelmed with the choices that floated around in my mind.

Here's how I was inspired:


The kraft base is 4x4, the watercolor panel 3.5x3.5.

Contrast?

contrast in fonts
skinny vs bold

contrast in color
distress stain broken china vs Mister Huey's Sherbet drops

I can't wait to see how CAS●ology inspires YOU!
