Hi Everyone,

sorry for the second post today, but I really wanted to play in this week's CASology challenge and the time is almost up....

the cue word is SPROUT. I had the perfect stamp for this (for years, literally...) and  its NBUS. So you know why I needed to play....Believe it or not, but it took me 3 tries before I was happy with it. CAS is not always easy to achieve....I think you have all been there.....

The delightful bean sprout stamp is by 100 Proof Press and the sentiment is by Rubber Necker. I sponged the background, stamped the sprout and colored it with a Faber Castell Marker. Added the black splatters for extra interest and some white gel pen accents.

LG Gundi

Flo said...

Der Spruch auf deiner Karte trifft den Nagel auf den Kopf (wie das fast immer bei Sprüchen so ist, aber nur, wenn sie passend eingesetzt werden, wie bei dir!!!) Das Pflänzchen scheint in seiner sonnigen Umgebung gut zu wachsen und gedeihen.
Liebe Grüße
