Something Electrical

After all my whining here about the weather and absence of rains and all...I'm thrilled to say that it finally rained! In fact its raining as I write this! Maybe I did not go dance in the rain but I am enjoying the cooler weather a lot!
After the weather report, I guess I'll share the card for today I made for CASology's brilliant cue word this week : ELECTRIC(Seriously guys. HOW do you think the cues up?). After almost exclusively studying static and current electricity and also things like electromagnetism in Physics the previous year, my brain was buzzing with many ideas. But uncharacteristically I decided on a bit of a romantic card, here it is :


Have you ever been in love? I haven't. But from countless romances I've read (guilty confession :p)I am assured that is is a very electric thing. In fact whenever the hero and the heroine come in contact with each other they feel bolts of electricity shivering down their spine, or tingling the hairs at the back of their necks...or creating sensation in some *other* places...ahem. But I digress. What I meant to say that I wanted to convey some kind of attraction with these sparking hearts!
The hearts I cut by hand, wrote the sentiment and drew the sparks with glitter pen. I actually tried a feeble pun on the phrase "The start of something beautiful".


Thanks to Hazel for letting me know about CAS on Sunday! I hope this card qualifies for their current challenge as I've used a glitter pen!

As per Susan's suggestion also linking this to Moxie Fab World...
Thanks for reading, and happy crafting!

  4. I love reading your blog entries somdeepa! They are heartfelt, sincere, and always coupled with a clever, interesting work of art. This is beautiful! You should also link it to CAS on Sundays! I have just stumbled across that site,and their cue word is 'glimmer and shimmer' using glitter. This would be a perfect entry there too!!
