CASology - Magic

Hi and thanks for stopping by!  I've been so busy lately getting the kiddos ready for school. They'll both be in college this year, but there's still lots of details to take care of.  I was waiting up last night for my daughter to come home from a movie and had some time to make this card for CASology.   I think that's the best part of a CAS card - is how fast it can all come together when you have an idea.   The cue card word this week is "Magic".


I knew exactly what stamp I was going to use for this as soon as I heard the word "Magic".  To the chagrin of my neighbors I've always found dandelions magical.  Their flowers are such a bright and vivid yellow.  When I was young we ask someone if they like butter and then rub the flower on their nose.  The yellow pollen from the flower would stick to their nose if the answer was yes.   When the blooms would dry out we would make a wish and blow on the seeds - giving them flight and sending our wishes to far away places. 


I inked up my stamp with two colors of ink - and then added some super fine glitter.  I used a Sakura Quickie Glue pen to get the glitter to stick exactly where I wanted it. The pen gives lots of control so you can add fine details.
 I'm looking foward to seeeing your "Magic" creations at CASology!  Have a great day!!

Jeanne, this is just fabulous. We did the same thing with dandelions when I was growing up. Your card is CAS perfection, love that stamp and the way you did the glitter. How hard was it for you to resist adding a bow? Good job with the restraint!
