CCC #27 - BLUE




Are you ready for this week's CASology Cue Word?
This week our cue word is:





I decided to go with a blue sky, in fact in the winter there are some of the most beautiful and vivid blue skies.  I wanted to make the hot air balloon the focal point where you will see nothing but blue skies.  I added some foam tape to the back of the balloon to draw your eye there.  Once I sketched out my card I immediately thought of the song, are you singing it now?  I typed the line from the song using the Clipper Script font off the Internet and then printed the card base before stamping the muted clouds in the distance.  The hot air balloon was die cut and coloured with Copics. So here is my blue card.




Head on over to CASology today to learn what the 'cue card' means to you, how you can play along and see the all the cards created by the Design Team to inspire you.

What a great use of that balloon stamp. One of my faves, and I love how you colored it and added your own sentiment. Call me dense, but I don't know what song this is from. Is it perhaps Canadian?
