CASology8 - Relax!



This week's CASology Cue Card is Relax!

It may surprise you (or not!) to know that I am one of those people who does not react well (at all) when I am told to "relax". Especially if the person telling me is my husband! lol! Don't worry, he knows better now!

I don't know if sailing is relaxing, in fact, it looks like pretty hard work to me, but I associate this card with 'relax' for two reasons:

1) all the white space and the cool calming colours, achieved with Copics;

2) I love Pierce Brosnan. And one of my favourite PB movies is "The Thomas Crown Affair", where Dennis Leary comments to Renee Russo that Thomas Crown "just trashed a hundred-thousand dollar boat because he wanted to feel the rush" (or something to that effect). I am always relaxed when I'm watching a movie with Pierce - Thomas Crown, James Bond, or After the Sunset are my favourites!

So now it's your turn to get all zen-like and make a Relaxing card.

Love the way you have done the sea.

Sailing IS relaxing but mostly because my husband does the work, with the kids as first mates, and I get to soak up the sun!! You've captured the peaceful feeling beautifully!

Ardyth, I was going to say just what Karen said! Awesome water. I can feel the movement. Beautiful card.

Ooh, I dunno, that sea looks a bit choppy to me (anything other than millpond-flat is choppy!). PB could have the desired calming effect, though!

I like the telescope effect of the frame and the cool colour scheme.

Very relaxing card. The soft colours are perfect and I love the shading on the sail. x

Gabby said...

Very nice card! I love sailing/ boating. I find it relaxing because whoever I have gone with does all the work while I just sit back, or lay back,and enjoy. Ahhhhhh. :)

I love the way you framed this - it's like looking through a ship's porthole. So perfect!
