I've been playing in my craft room since getting home and I've made a very CAS card for four challenges:
- Less is More - LIM107 - where the theme is "up in the air"
- CAS-ual Fridays - CFC90 - to use black, white and one other colour
- CAS(E) this Sketch! - CTS15
- Dynamic Duos - DD#40 - Black Tie combo of Tempting Turquoise and Black, with the theme of clouds
Stamps: PTI - Scattered Showers
Inks: Stampin' Up! - Tempting Turquoise, Daffodil Delight; Memento - Tuxedo Black
Accessories: SU Card - Tempting Turquoise; White Lustre and Black card from stash
This is about as clean and simple as it gets! I cut black and turquoise mats for the front and on the white layer I stamped the sentiment in turquoise. I stamped the clouds (up in the air!) onto a scrap of white card using the second impression to give the idea of storm clouds, and then cut them out and adhered them to the card with dimensional tape.
The sentiment on the front suggests that you might be a bit in the dumps or feeling down, so for the inside I stamped the sun (again second impression) and a greeting. I layered the white onto more turquoise card.
I lost yesterday to a day of editing holiday photos. I took lots of photos when we went to Chicago and California last year, but hadn't got around to editing any of them. So I spent most of the day going through them and have uploaded the images to my Flickr account if you want to see them. The next job will be to make some scrapbooks of our trips.
That's all for now. Jonathan is busy working on his photos and Kathryn is sorting our her Social Studies homework and I'm off back to my craft room to make a few birthday cards.
Be safe! See you soon.
