CASology and Paper Players

It has been almost a week for me without making a card......that was not my choice, just too many other things happening. Mainly work.....Hopefully next week will be better, although we are having visitors for the next two and a half weeks and I want to spend some time with them, too.

I wanted to play with CASology all week long, finally I had a few minutes to make this:


The cue work is PAINT. I took some acrylic paint, spread a strip of it onto the card stock and then took one of those cake decorating thingies from my kitchen drawer and made the vertical strips. I guess a comb would work too.


The sentiment is by Hero Arts. Heat embossed in white. Enamel dots. 
Hmm, looking at that card I can see lots of possibilities ......I think I'll keep that thing now in my craft room...
Below is that thing:


And here is wanted to share a different kind of visitor, which we discovered last night on the roof: You see, we still have snow, its supposed to snow a bit tonight again....


For you, who don't know those animals - its a racoon - they are feisty and fearless little things, actually not so little, they are extremely skilled in opening garbage cans and then distributing the garbage all over the yard....but oh, so cute!

Whoa - new and different and oh-so-cool. The card, not the critter. You definitely don't want him getting into your chimney or attic.

Such a clever way to create fun effect on your card! Love when people use household items for their creations. Thanks so much for playing with us at CASology this week. May-DT

Die Karte ist super. Ja, man wird im Laufe der Zeit erfinderisch, welche "Hilfsmittel" man nimmt/braucht, um interessante Karten zu gestalten.
Solche "Untermieter" braucht kein Mensch. Bei uns hier treiben sie überall ihr Unwesen - leider.

Ein Waschbär, wir haben "nur" einen Marder!! Ich weiß nicht, was besser ist!
Die Karte ist ganz toll, super Idee, ich gehe gleich mal in den Werkzeugkeller ! Kölle Alaaf Elisabeth

How cool is this?! Very clever!!

Ardyth Percy-Robb said...

So. COOL! Love the vibrant colours on the grey and the really neat technique. I think it looks like one of those sound bar charts (I have no idea what they're called, but you see them on stereos and sound equipment). Thanks for joining us at CASology!

Great card Cornelia! Wondering what the cute little critter is - really sweet face :)

Hugs, Di xx

I love your artsy card, Cornelia. Beautiful colors, love your creativity.

That raccoon looks cute in the picture but in real they look so scary, we see them a lot around here. :-)

Cornelia, this is so striking and urban graphic and I love it!

Kim Heggins said...

Oh...what a sweet little critter! But you card is stunning, so amazing and so stinkin' creative. That bright orange stands out so much, it almost looks like it pops off your card, I love it!
