Pals Paper Arts #219

Okay, so I'm procrastinating.  I'll admit it!  I should be finishing up three sets of swaps I need to have done within the next two weeks.  Instead, I'm playing along with the great color challenge over at Pals Paper Arts.  I totally love these colors and, thanks to Angie Crockett, I have a wonderful single layer card design to CASE (Copy And Share Everything).   To see her card, you can visit her Body, Mind, Spirit, and STAMPS!

For my 'clouds,' I made a template using the Cloud Punch from My Digital Studio.  I printed it out then, cut around the clouds.  Using the cloud mask, I first sponged Crushed Curry over the entire area.  Then, sponged Cajun Craze to give the varying definitions of color.  I used Always Artichoke to stamp the image and sentiment from the For All Things stamp set found on page 41 of the 2014 Holiday Catalog.


Stamp Set:  For All Things; Inks:  Always Artichoke, Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry; Card Stock:  Whisper White; Accessories & Tools:  Essentials Paper-Piercing Pack, Sponge Dauber

Clean and simple and full of wonderful Fall colors. You can find the Pals Paper Arts Color Challenge HERE.

  2. Gorgeous, Marsha. I love the seeming simplicity, although I know how much work masking and piercing actually is.
