CASology 105 - Run!


This week's CASology Cue Card is Run!



Run is not my favourite word in the world - I walk quickly (a lot!) but I only run if someone's chasing me! Still, it's an interesting cue card and will inspire a lot of amazing creations, I'm sure. I went back to an old favourite - an image from Bareback from Stampin' Up. To take it up a notch from plain black and white, I stamped the horses using Royal Satin Kaleidecolor Ink. This adds a subtle punch of colour and some interest. I didn't 'frame' the horses - leaving the ends white so that there is no limit to how far they can run!

Now it's your turn. Before you go, make sure you check out the blogs of the rest of the DT members for more inspiration!

I love the flow and movement of the colored horses. The panel looks terrific with the black mat.

A CAS masterpiece, Ardyth! I love the gradation of colors and how you added a black border above and below your images! These horses are truly stunning, too!

Bobby said...

Those horses really exemplify the word "run". I love the gradient color.

Joyce said...

Fantastic image for run, and I love how you inked those horses. I like the symbolism of there being no border in front or behind those horses.

Lindsey said...

We are obviously NON-running sisters! ;) I love how the varied colour adds to the feeling of movement here. Must try one of the Kaleidecolor pads!

This is a PUNCH of interest, WOW, so stunning, LOVE this one, a FAVE of mine!!!!!!!!!These images are lovely in these colors.

You are just so smart! They did look like they were in a hurry to get somewhere, but it didn't click with me that it was because you had them on a horizontally outlined strip. Now that's some good designin'!

Wow, love this Ardyth!! I would have had a hard time with "run". lol Love the horses stamped in those colors and I love that black edging on the mat. I also love that you gave the horse free reign to run as far as they can. Hugs, Brenda

It is great to see this horsestamp in different colours! The only problem I have is that I had the same stamp in my head as soon as I saw the que-word... :) Hugs, Gerrina

Ardyth, this is brilliant! The colors are beautiful, and the open ends do give a feeling of freedom to run!

The sense of movement here is fantastic, Ardyth ... the colours (warm red to cooler bleu and green), the lovely galloping horses and how you've left the panel open ended ... brilliant! Anita :)
