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.
