CASology #93


Welcome to Week 93 of CASology!  Take a look at this week's cue word:


Okay, I know this looks like a scary word at first (most of the design team were pretty scared of it I think!). Don't panic though - just go wherever it takes you.  You don't have to be totally literal and if you're not just let us know how the cue word led you to your final creation.  In my case the song Electric Slide came into my head immediately upon seeing this word.  I tried very hard to ignore it (and to forget how often we did the dance back in the day!) but it just wouldn't leave me alone.  I am a little short on dancing people stamps (especially Electric Slide dancing people stamps) so I had to get creative.  The sentiment is from Mama Elephant.  The people are from Altenew.  When they face each other they're high fiving.  So I put them back to back and I think they look like they're throwing some pretty cool shapes (translation:  they look like they're dancing!).  I overstamped the people with silver ink which gives them a feeling of movement and adds interest to the image overall.  Over to you now.  Check out the clever design team creations and then get to work!

This just shouts dance party, Jen!!! :) Love how you created movement on this! I need to remember that trick because it's so simple!
I actually thought of the song Electric Blue (Yes, I'm an 80's child.), but wasn't in the mood to work with blues...LOL! :)

Very cool interpretation of the cue word, Jen, I love how your mind works, and I love this card :)

This is such an incredibly creative take on the Cue Card, Jen! I love that you placed them back to back, and how effective your over stamping was to add to the movement of the images...so cool!

Also, I want to thank you so much for selecting my card as your fave this week...so glad you liked it!

Oh, Electric Slide. I was wondering what their dance had to do with electric. This is so clever and I love your dark colored base and your double stamping.

Jen, I knew exactly where you were going with this when I saw your card for this week's cue! Oh, yeah, electric slide baby! Great way to use the high five image...they do look like they are dancing!
