CASology 86 - Roots


This week's CASology Cue Card is Roots.



The DT had lots of discussion about this one and came up with some really fun interpretations! I went with "I'm rooting for you!". I created the pom-poms with a stamp from Neat & Tangled's Party Kit set, used the YOU from MFT's Bold Statements, and Kelly Purkey's Plain Jane Alpha for the 'GO'.

I decided to use yellow because its cheerfulness reinforces the encouragement and happiness intended for the recipient of this card. I think that after white space, colour is one of the most powerful tools in CAS design. When you don't have a lot of elements on a card, each one has to work hard to support the message.

I added Stickles to add to the movement of the tassles in the pom-poms.

We've got other news too - a change in our timeline so you have more time to play along!

We are:

extending the deadline for entries to Mondays at 1pm Eastern.

announcing our winners and honorable mentions on Tuesdays at 8am Eastern

Challenges will begin at the same time as usual, 9 am Eastern on Tuesdays.

Now it's your turn - I can't wait to see what you come up with!

Ahh, I totally didn't get it until I read your post. I even paused a minute to see if it would come to me. Clever, clever. Also like your use of yellow. It's a very happy, school spirit kind of color.

Wonderful interpretation of the cue word. I'd say your card is happy, fun and exciting. Interesting perspective on color. I never thought of it that way, and so I learned something from you today. Thanks.
