Blue Skies



It is such a beautiful day here.  A clear sky and no wind and rain to blast the remnants of my hanging baskets It has been such a disappointing summer in terms of garden colour - unless green is your favourite hue.

I went out to the garden with the camera hoping to capture some fluffy white clouds but...not a one to be seenLovely colour though.




Fluffy clouds are what I was aiming for as the end result when designing this card.





I made it to play along with this week's CASology challenge. 


  
Beginning with a rectangular mask and a cloud shape cut from copy paper,  I used Cut and Dry  foam to add  ink (Ocean Blue from Rubber Stampede.) Adirondack - Lettuce was applied to create the "land". The same ink was used to stamp the Lavinia Stamps trees to complete the foreground.

No sentiment - I don't think it needs it.

Lilian , what a lovely card. You've made a brilliant job of the clouds !!

Kate Ganson said...

me again ! Haven't had a chance to browse Blogland for a while but have spent a pleasant wee while looking at yours. Your cards are very inspirational , and you are far too modest for your own good! As for the business idea ...I say go for it !
Am off for a hop round the blogs while the house is quiet and I can actually get on the computer !!
