My daughter went on a sleepaway camp for the very first time. She was very nervous since she went on her own. I made her a card to surprise her and to make her smile.
I’ve been wanting to use Mama Elephant’s Love From Above clear set. Those little angels are the cutest!
On white CS, I stamped the angel holding the heart 3x. I colored each with Prismacolor Pencils and then fussy cut. I also added Glossy Accents to the heart for a little shine. I set them aside.
I then worked on the sky background on my card base. I wanted to add a little more visual interest than just a blue background. Using the new round Mini Ink Blending Tool, I added circles of Tumbled Glass and Shaded Lilac. I just added ink to the tool and pressed directly on the card base twisting the tool to create a perfect circle. I did this repeatedly creating 2nd and 3rd generation circles. I overlapped the circles as well so I ended up creating a bokeh look. I love it!
I die cut the cloud die from Landscape Trio and trimmed it to fit my A2 card base. I rubbed Pumice Stone and Tumbled Glass Distress Ink to the edge of the die cut. The die cut was adhered to the bottom of the card base. To finish, I added my sentiment and heat embossed with clear EP. The angels were added vertically up the card and adhered with foam tape.
It’s been a while since I participated in a challenge.
I am adding this to CASE Study Challenge #196. I interpreted Pamela’s beautiful card loosely takng the aspect of flying over an image. In this case, angels flying over a cloud.
I am also adding this to Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge You Gotta Have Friends. Although I made this card for my daughter, it can also be used for a very dear friend.
Enjoy your week!
