CASology - Electric


This week's CASology Cue Card is Electric!



For this card, I stamped a Paper Smooches stamp in Unicorn White ink before embossing it with white ep. I then dug out my old chalks - remember those? and rubbed a bit of yellow over the bulb portion and a bit of grey on the screwy-in portion. I love how it looks like it's glowing in all that white space! Yes, white space can be any colour at all, even black. It's often called clear space, which is really more accurate. All it means is breathing room and that's really what makes any card feel clean.

This Cue Card is fun with lots of directions to go in - make sure you check out the rest of the DT's blogs for more inspiration!

  11. The bulb looks like it's glowing. I figured it was yellow embossing powder, not chalk on white. It really pops on the black. Brilliant! Pun intended. ;)
