CASology #279: GRAY

Hello, friends!  I'm back today with my card for the new cue at CASology.


I guess with the recent snow we had here in New Jersey, I had gray skies on my mind.  I decided to make a scene by masking a hill and moon and then inking the gray sky with distress inks.  I then removed the masks, inked the moon with Antique Linen distress ink, and stamped the trees in the same distress ink as the sky.  Finally, I splattered some snow with watered down ivory acrylic paint.  The lamp post die cut was adhered, and the sentiment from Hero Arts was stamped in red for a pop of color.  The card base is also gray to compliment the scene.


I'm also linking this card up to two challenges:

(1) The current Muse: Christmas Visions #90, where any holiday card can be linked up!

(2) The Happy Little Stampers December Anything Goes with Dies Challenge -- I used two dies on my card (the lamp post and the wonky stitched rectangle).


I can't wait to see how you interpret the GRAY cue card this week!  Be sure to link up your card by noon on Monday (Central time). You will also be inspired by the many ways our Design Team and Guest Designer interpreted the cue this week...be sure to check out their blogs, too!

Guest Designer: Mary B.

Thanks for visiting,
Judy

  6. Hi Judy. I LOVE this card. I love the layout, the die cuts and the detail. I would love to know whose lamp post that is. Tim Holtz? I am also a Jersey girl (South Brunswick) and I have been loving the snow while Christmas decorations are up. Not loving it so much while my 18 year olds go out driving, but it's all part of the plan I guess. Would you please let me know where the lamp post comes from? slan.zal@verizon.net Merry Christmas!
