Hope the first day of the work week went well. Boy, it was a good day to be inside here. We got over 2 inches of rain. Wow, is it wet!
The current CAS-ual Fridays challenge is to make a card involving at least one number. Should be a perfect challenge for a math educator... right? So, why did I struggle so much with this one?
I'm always hearing people say something like, "On a scale of 1 to 10, I'd give it [...] an 11!" So, the math teacher in me decided to do a take on this...
MATH ALERT WARNING: Math stuff ahead!!!! Since 10 raised to the 0 power is one and 10 raised to the 1st power is 10 and 10 raised to the 2nd power is 100, I decided to go with the numbers 1, 10, and 100. I know, sometimes the math-i-ness just comes out in spite of myself. :)
I sponged the lower numbers in red, the middle numbers in yellow, and the upper numbers in green -- going for an ombre effect at each level. After that, the card took on a life of itself. The sponged ink had more of a primary feel/look than I had envisioned. So, I went full-speed ahead with the primary feel, going with primary-looking numbers and primary-like stars.
Most of my cards go to Operation Write Home. So, I'm thinking a little boy or girl might really like receiving an encouraging card from mommy or daddy as a new school year begins.
Have a good rest of the week.
Thanks for visiting and happy scrappin'!
