Soaring high in the Sky

Good afternoon to all my crafty friends and followers

Thank you so very much for all your lovely comments yesterday and today about my post showing off my beautiful granddaughters.  It meant an awful lot to me and I really appreciate the time you took to visit.

Today I have been busy clearing out my craft room or should I say sorting out my filing cabinets and utilising them better than they were.  I have also changed the way I store my stamps and they are now stored in A4 plastic boxes instead of files.  So now I have a lovely clear and tidy room, I even rearranged my shelves too.  Now I am eager to get back into getting some crafting done.  I will be colouring some gorgeous digi's that I can't show you all yet but before I get started I have a card for you today.

This card is for any little boy and I have used LOTV stamp, I just love this stamp and have used it a few times before.


Recipe & Method


1.  Base card is scalloped square card from Kanban.
2.  First spotty layer is from My Minds Eye which I have used a corner punch to curve the corners.
3.  Second cloudy paper is again from My Minds Eye which I have used Spellbinder Circle die.
4.  I cut out a piece of Neenah card using Spellbinder Scalloped Circle and stamped the image.
5.  I have coloured the image with Promarkers and inked the edge of the scalloped circle with Dew Drops Brilliance Pearlescent Sky Blue.
6.  To complete the card I have added "Soar" adage ticket from Tim Holtz idea-ology collection.

Hi Linda...I can see that you have a wonderful eye for colour! This is a gorgeous boy card (which is not always easy to do) and the scalloped card for the base looks like clouds...a really clever idea.
