Black as Night


It’s Tuesday and time for a new cue word at CASology!  This week, we’re exploring the darkness of black!  With Halloween arriving in just a couple more days, this word probably brings to mind some rather scary things!  I definitely had night on my mind, but since I don’t really care for scary things, I went with a more relaxing theme!

I don’t know if I like this card much, but I’m giving it a chance by posting it here!  Some days are like that, aren’t they?!  I simply masked a moon with a punched circle in a Post It note and added star sequins.  At the last minute, I decided to add some twinkle to the stars by adhering some little clear gemstones to the stars!  I stamped the sentiment on top of the masked circle in black.

I hope you’ll play along with the BLACK challenge this week!  I think this is going to be an interesting week, I think!  Be sure to visit the design team members’ blogs as well as our guest designer’s blog for inspiration!

Remember to link up your own creation on the challenge blog by Sunday at 4:00 p.m. (CST)!

Have a terrific Tuesday!

    Melissa, I was immediately drawn to the ethereal effect of your moon…slightly hazy, so realistic! Great take on the cue this week…and perfectly CAS, as always!

    I never even thought of 'night' Melissa, but I love what you have done with it, it really does look relaxing
