Up, Up and Away
We had lots of fun at the zoo and will share some pics with you as soon as I get them uploaded. For today though, I have another card to share with you. My Up, Up and Away card was created for this week's Stars and Stamps Sketch Challenge #14. I love this sketch because the image is slightly turned which in itself adds so much dimension to this card.
I also used my newly discovered method of layering again on today's card so my card base is a half sheet of Basic Black cardstock folded in half. Next I cut a 4 x 5 1/4 piece of Basic Black cardstock and layered it with a slightly smaller piece of Treasured Brights patterned paper then a 2 1/2 x 5 1/2 strip of Taken With Teal cardstock. I wrapped the Black Dashed Ribbon around this layer and tied a knot in front before attaching to the card base using mounting tape.
The image was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black on PTI White using the Up, Up and Away stamp set then colored in using copic markers. I paper pierced around the edge then layered the image on to a slightly larger piece of Basic Black cardstock then attached to the card base using mounting tape. The sentiment was also stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black on PTI White using the Heartfelt Phrases stamp set, punched out using the Word Window Punch, then attached to the card base using mounting tape. To embellish the card I added a matching button threaded with DMC White at the center of the knot.
Hope you have a great day!
