CASology 6 - SCHOOL!


Here in Ontario, our kids don't go back to school until after Labour Day, but it doesn't mean we're not longing for, (oops, did I say that out loud?), I mean dreading, but valiantly getting ready for Back to School.

This week's CASology Cue Card is SCHOOL!

I can never resist a good rainbow - whatever form it takes - and crayons are the perfect way to include a lot of colour into a black and white card. I chose to use only the tips of the crayons, to leave lots of white space and keep the card feeling very open. I often use a black card base to provide definition and contrast - I line the inside of the card with another white panel, so that it's easy to write a message to the recipient.

I used Stampin' Up's Crayon Fun alpha, and a crayon from an old clear set. I coloured the crayons with copics, and used shading on the labels to create the illusion of dimension.

Now it's your turn to give us a lesson in your creativity!

Love that alpha set! And I like how you've just used the crayon tips to make a brilliant border. You're right about the black base providing definition, it sets the card off beautifully - I'll borrow that tip!
