Design It Monday ~ {Tom Sawyer-ish!}

Hello and welcome! I have another bright and happy CAS card to share with you today. Once again I’m featuring the New Day stamp set using primary colors. Take a look…

The idea popped into my head out of nowhere to use the paint swipe image on a picket fence die cut. I put the fence in my Misti and stamped with red ink. Making marks on the grid paper for positioning, I then added the horizontal section of the fence to the Misti to add the red ink to it. I followed these same steps with the yellow and blue inks. The horizontal sections were added to the fence with foam tape.

After stamping the sentiment, I thought the card need something else. I found a tiny solid bird image in my stash and kissed it with the dotted circle from the set. By that I mean that I inked the solid image, pressed it onto the circle image then onto paper. I trimmed the tiny bird out and popped it onto the card with foam adhesive over a sold stamped bird. It sounds complicated, but it’s easy!

Maybe if Tom Sayer has used bright happy colors, instead of boring whitewash, he wouldn’t have tried to convince his friends to paint that long fence!
