CASology 10 - SKY!





This week's CASology Cue Card is SKY.


I have to admit, I really struggled with this one! Birds, planes, kites, angels, balloons, stars, moon.....what to put in my sky? 

Then it hit me like a bolt of lightning. Really.  Right when I came across this MFT lightning from Masculine Graphics. I stamped in Versamark and then Summer Sun, and then embossed with iridescent embossing powder for sparkle.  To make it a little more interesting, I used a square rather than a round black mat for the focal point. But the cardbase had to be grey - I mean, grey sky is where lightning comes from, right? lol!

This week, the sky really is the limit - go put your thinking caps on and link up your creations! We can't wait to see them all!

But first, don't forget to see what the rest of the members of the Design Team have for you:

Love the dramatic card and colour combo, brilliant idea. My sky is only a shade lighter than this - and it's midday! (Hopefully no lightning to come.)
