Neat & Tangled Release - Clouds - Last day for Giveaway



Hello!  So happy to reveal my second set from this release!  Meet Clouds:



I love to doodle and for whatever reason clouds are often the subject.  For this set I wanted to combine more streamlined outer lines with doodled/sketched interiors.

For today's card, I colored N&T's sunburst stamp with distress markers along the edges of the rays, and after stamping on the cardstock panel, I used a waterbrush to soften the lines and spread the color out a bit.  It was a little more subtle than I wanted, so I went back in and added some extra definition with the marker.

The panel was trimmed down and distressed on the edges.

The clouds are stamped with Versafine Smokey Grey and fussy cut, and I used Smokey Grey for the sentiment too.

The bottom cloud was adhered directly to the panel while the second was popped up.  I thought the sunburst panel needed something to anchor it, so I added a very thin strip of cardstock to the bottom.  A pale blue cardstock was the perfect way to finish it off, gives the hint of sky without any real sky.

Be sure to head over to the Neat & Tangled blog to check out the design team projects and enter to win a set.

I'm also hosting a giveaway here.  Leave a comment on any or all of this week's release posts and I'll pick one lucky commenter to receive one of my new sets.  I'll be back tomorrow to announce the release week winner!
