My obsession with challenges continues – I love being pushed out of my comfort zone! Well, or in this case, finding a way to make the challenge work for my style.
Today is a fun one. The Addicted to CAS (Clean And Simple) challenge #16 is based on the code phrase “Take Flight”. As soon as I saw it I knew what my card would look like.
Stamps: Blue Skies (Lawn Fawn)
Paper: Daphne’s Closet (Lawn Fawn), Neenah Solar White
Ink: Memento Black, Versafine
Accessories: Blue Skies dies (Lawn Fawn), Copics
This card has three layers. I started with a piece of light blue patterned paper from Lawn Fawn’s Daphne’s Closet collection. I die cut the clouds out of the paper, then used foam adhesive to layer the piece over a white card base. This creates some dimension utilizing the negative space from the clouds. Next I stamped the balloon and banner onto white paper, did some Copic coloring, and used a die to cut out the balloon and banner. I then placed the balloon onto the card using additional foam adhesive. The balloon seems to be hovering over the sky and clouds. I finished it off with a few solid stars to reinforce the sky look.
I’m very pleased with now this card came out. It looks exactly as I imagined it when I saw the “Take Flight” inspiration phrase.
