CPS 232

Today's CPS sketch inspired me to make a card for my eldest daughter who moved to college last week.  She is a freshman but its not her first time being away from home.  She's checked in most days and is having a blast.  I figure I'll send her a card every week or so - just to keep her on her toes and remember to check her mail box :)

On the card base, I used the Linen background stamp (retired)  but only inked up the edges and stamped it on the card base  Then I stamped the clouds from Up, Up and Away in Fresh Snow ink.

On the focal layer I stamped the outlined kite, sentiment and some clouds.   Then I stamped the kite fill in Real Red on scrap paper, cut it out and layered it on some foam tape over the outlined kite.

I highlighted "sky" with a copic sketch marker, a little trick I learned form Michelle Wooderson. And finally I finished it off with some ribbon scraps on the edge of the focal layer.

Thanks for stopping!
