Here's my card for this week's CAS-ual Fridays challenge to make a card with a black base. Since it's Monday and the start of a new work week, the dark card base combined with message on my card seems somewhat appropriate.
Market Street Stamps mini sets as my focal image. The lightbulb is colored with several different yellow Copic markers, then sprayed with a little shimmer spray for a sparkly look. It's attached to a black panel with foam tape. I stamped the "always look on the bright side" sentiment in silver ink--I was going to heat emboss it, but took the lazy route and just used ink . . . To complete the visual triangle on the panel, I added a little yellow ribbon tab with a baker's twine tied button. The panel is set on a yellow mat, then on a black card base.
