Delicate Sky


Hi everyone.  Time for the next challenge at Addicted to CAS.  This challenge is being run by the very talented Shana (Stress-free Stamping with Shana).  Shana chose this fabulous code word:






Prize:  5 digital images



I sponged three distress inks onto my main panel (Broken China, Peacock Feathers and Evergreen Bough), then stamped the branch in Versamark and heat embossed in white.  The sentiment is stamped in soft gray to match the soft colors of the sponged sky.  Super CAS and super simple card.

It's a new month and that means a new Guest Designer.  We are so excited to have Cathy (Cathy's Card Spot) join us for the month of July.  Check out the challenge - ATCAS#42 - code word SKY and see the fabulous  Design Team's cards! :)

As always, the challenge is open for two weeks, so there's lots of time to play along.  Hope to see you in the gallery! :)







Stamps:  Delicate Branches (Inkadinkado); A Little Sentimental (Clearly Besotted)
Paper:  110 lb. white (Neenah)
Ink:  Broken China, Peacock Feathers, Evergreen Bough (Distress Inks); Smoky Slate (SU!); Versamark
Accessories & Tools:  Sponges, embossing buddy (powder); white embossing powder, heat tool

  13. Gorgeous, Loll! Love your colour combo for the sky. I'm about to ink a Christmas sky and I would normally mix the broken china with some darker blues, but I think I'm going to try your combination...

  19. Loll, the sky you've created is absolutely gorgeous! What is your secret to smooth, non-splotchy, 'seamless' sponging?? Tutorial please! The single branch is the perfect silhouette for that gorgeous sky panel. Stunning!!
