Adding CAS-Tastic Summer Ink

So morning coffee in hand and a brief opportunity to travel the blog-o-sphere, I came upon these lovely challenges:  Over at Just Add Ink (JAI 78), they pulled out of their magic color wheel, one of my favorite color combinations:  Certainly Celery, Not Quite Navy, Sahara Sand and Chocolate Chip... yummy!  And, over at SCS, there is the Summer CAS-tastic challenge (F4A75) that craves those summer colors.  And at the Clean and Simple Stamping blog (#150) there was an adorable, CAS sketch to try!

Completely inspired, stamps practically jumped into my hand and away I went... until, of course, the phone rang and all that reminded me that this day has many tasks ahead.  Yes, it was a brief moment of creative bliss.  So before I tend to the things that need to get done, let me share my CAS-tastic (SCS term) moment with you.

I know I cannot get enough of this Sail Away stamp... I just adore it!  I love how every time I add the sails with designer paper or cardstock (Certainly Celery here), the image seems to pops off the page.  The waves were sponged until I had some movement under the boat.  Hardly able to see, but I choco-chipped some color on the actual boat.

Thanks for visiting.
Have a CAS-tastic Summer Friday!


  1. Great card Luci, love these colours for this stamp.

  2. LOVE this! The sponged waves, and beautiful straight horizon, look fabulous. I agree with you about the Sail Away stamp; isn't it great? Love how you've used the JAI colours, Luci.

  3. You are a wizard with that boat Luci!!! and you worked the colors and the layout perfectly!

  4. I love the way you coloured the waves Luci and the use of the top note is very effective too. Glad you could play along at JAI this week.


I do appreciate your comments. Thank you for visiting!
