It's Friday! It's Friday! Are you all as excited as I am? I'm thrilled to have my hubby back home and ready for a beautiful weekend. My daughter's last day of school is Monday, so summer is about to officially begin!
If it's Friday, that also means a new challenge at one of my favorite blogs, CAS-ual Fridays. One of our very own team members is offering up an amazing prize this week, but you'll just have to click over there to find out the details. *wink*
Your challenge this week is "clear as day": use acetate or vellum on your clean and simple project.
I didn't have any acetate or clear cardstock handy so I chose to work with vellum. I decided to make some vellum clouds for a scene with stamps from Waltzingmouse's Half Pint Heroines.
A co-worker has been going through a rough patch, and I knew this balloon and sentiment would be perfect to let her know I'm thinking of her. I paper pieced the balloon in bright prints from Echo Park's Dots & Stripes collection.
The clouds were stamped onto vellum and cut out by hand. Since the vellum is transparent, I was able to flip two of the clouds over to the back to use them in the reverse orientation.
To adhere the clouds, I used a tiny drop of Glossy Accents on the back of each cloud, then added a clear gem on top to hide the adhesive.
Cardstock: Papertrey Ink (Spring Rain, White)
Patterned paper: Echo Park (Dots & Stripes, A Boy's Life)
Stamps: Waltzingmouse Stamps (Half Pint Heroines)
Ink: Memento (Tuxedo Black), Copic markers, black pen
Accessories: Queen & Co. (rhinestones), vellum
Thanks so much for stopping by on your Friday! I'm definitely looking forward to seeing your creations in the CAS-ual Fridays gallery this week, as I don't often use acetate or vellum and could use some more inspiration.
Speaking of inspiration--be sure to visit the rest of the Girl Fridays to get the ideas flowing. Those gals are the best!
Have a great start to your weekend!
