It’s CASology time again, and we are over the moon to bring you this week’s cue:
And, by that, I refer to that of a celestial nature, not the …ahem… verb). 😉
So, back to that moon noun: For me, I can’t look at the moon without pondering how much lies beyond it and us. It radiates an air of mystery and magic, and it is hardly surprising that it has long been a source of myth and legend.
On a lighter note, I love how children’s picture books often depict the moon as having a surface not dissimilar to a piece of Swiss cheese, and being a picture book fanatic, I went with that image.
Here is the result:
And here’s a closer look at the moon’s surface:
My ‘moon craters’ were created using the two sizes of ‘coffee rings’ stamps from STAMPlorations’ Holiday Artsy stamp set. I thought they added the texture and interest I was looking for, in what would otherwise have been a large, plain white moon.
I toyed with the idea of going with a nature theme, but having recently read this beautifully-illustrated, poignant story to my little boys, of two friends being separated when one moves away to a big city, I settled on the image of a cityscape. I die cut the cityscape (Clearly Besotted) twice – once in yellow and once in black, to create the impression of moonlight reflecting off the skyscrapers.

Thanks so much for visiting! I look forward to how the moon inspires you this week!
