Funky Clouds

By Taheerah | 3rd April 2012 | 4 Comments

Hey everyone!

Happy Tuesday! Over here we’re on a 4-day week because of Easter, and I’ve booked all of next week off for a holiday!! Can’t wait for some R ‘n’ R!!
I thought I’d pop on quickly today with a card I created over the weekend. I was a bit meh about it at first but it’s really grown on me!!

What do you think?
I’ve got a real thing for neons at the moment – they seem to popping up in fashion and trends a lot and I’m loving the more grown-up version of this particular part of the 80s fashion idea. :o) So you might be seeing a few neon-esque creations for me!!
I started with a Lemon Tart cardstock panel. I them die cut a ton of clouds using my new Lil’ Inkers cloud dies (thanks Laurie for the enabling!!) from Rustic White cardstock.
I then stamped the cards with various scales of pattern using Background Basics: Houndstooth, Background Basics: Gingham, Background Basics: Chevron Stripes and Background Basics: Circles. I used Berry Sorbet, Hawaiian Shores and Ranger Mustard Seed Distress inks.
I then arranged and adhered the clouds to the panel using Scor-Tape, trimming the clouds so they were flush with the edges.
A quick stamping of three words from the Pink by Design My Type set using Versafine Onyx Black ink was all that was needed to finish off before the panel was adhered to a Lemon Tart card base!!

I would love to know what you think of this little card, as well as the photos!!

Thanks for stopping by, see you again soon!!
