CASology: GLOW

Glowbugs.  Anyone remember those things?  I had two of them growing up and still have one of them which our boys like to keep on a shelf in their bedroom!  If I had a stamp image of one, I would have totally used it for this week’s challenge!

Instead I had to dig a little further back in time to find another novelty item…a lava lamp!  Thank you, Stampin’Up! for having a stamp image of one!

I added a little Crystal Effects to give the blue blobs some shine and to add a little of a realistic look to the lamp.  I added a single gemstone to the lamp’s lower right corner to help move the eye around a little bit in this small design area.

 Be sure and hop over to the design team member and guest designer blogs if you have a moment!  They’d love to hear from you!

Have a terrific Tuesday!

    Melissa, this card is awesome! A lava lamp really brings back memories…as does the glow bug! (I thought of a glow worm, that's what we had as kids!) I also love the new look of your blog…it got even cleaner and simpler! Wonderful!!!

    You have a lava lamp stamp — how awesome is that? And I love how the Crystal Effects add to the glow.
