Hello, happy Tuesday everyone!
Today I have the absolute pleasure of being Guest Designer at CASology,
We have a super fun new cue card for week 242 at CASology and its “TEXT”.
I’ve chosen to create a one layer, vintage style, Field Journal illustration card design,
I’ve used a simple monochromatic colour scheme, with plenty of open white space.
My card base is an A2 top folding card made out of Whisper White Thick Cardstock,
Again I’ve used the handy Stampin' Trimmer for all my trimming and paper scoring today.

The focal image on my card today is made up of two very simple elements….
I’ve first stamped the little dragonfly from the Awesomely Artistic Clear Mount Stamp Set
directly onto the card front using Basic Black Archival Ink, this is a gorgeous little stamp!
Next to create my faux field notes (text), I've chosen a few of the inspiring words from the
Thoughtful Banners Photopolymer Stamp Set, I’ve stamped the words in a random fashion
on and around the dragonfly image in Basic Black Archival Ink once again.

To add some subtle detail to the card design and to give it a bit more of a vintage feel
I’ve added a small amount of light pen flicking using a Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker.
Thank you to Melissa and all the design team members at CASology for having me,
I hope you’ve all enjoyed this vintage style field journal illustration card design.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
