CAS Clouds mark II

The challenge on CAS-ual Fridays this week is projects including things you would find in the sky. As you know I love clouds, so this was a doozy...

See the neon? Love it... This is a similar card to one I did a while ago, so if you think it looks familiar, that might be why! However this time I clustered everything at the bottom, cut the card 1/4" narrower so that the sentiment strip could hang over the edge slightly, and used Neon Yellow (Hero Arts).

The raised clouds are made from 4 layers of white cardstock die cut and stuck together, I then sponged the edges with Neon Yellow ink and added my final layer of the embossed cloud. The chevron pattern on the sentiment strip is from Lawn Fawn (Chevron Backdrops), and the sentiment itself is Papertrey Ink's Up, Up and Away Sentiments. Finally, I used my Stampin' Up embossing folder, and the clouds are cut using PTI's cloud dies. One last thing to note - I used Basic Grey ink rather than Basic Black as the BB looked too harsh.

Hope you like it!

  6. Between the texture, layers and highlighting your clouds look like they are drifting across the page. :)
