I made the background paper with Laura’s “smooshing” technique. I made a lot of background papers with this technique today and they remind me of some of the beautiful skies in my father’s paintings.
I would like to dedicate this post to my Dad, from whom I received a wonderful card of encouragement today. I love you, Dad.
Have you been over to my father’s online gallery? There’s a link on the right side of my blog.
Here’s Laura’s card with the super cool and clever Double Partial Die Cutting. In the video, Laura wondered about triple die cutting. Now I’m pondering that on myself. Maybe I’ll give it a try?
Laura’s cool card:
And here’s Kristie’s beautiful creation:
Like Kristie, I used some new goodies from PTI. The sun is from Blue Skies stamp set and the sentiment is from Easter Alleluias. The Joy is from PTI’s Holiday Double cuts die. I’m not exactly sure if this would count as a CAS card, but I’m going to try playing it over at HLS’s March Challenge:Sponging. There seem to be a lot of disparity in the CAS design style, so I’m still figuring it all out. 😉 I am also playing this over at Word Art Wednesday: Challenge #176.
Thanks for stopping by!
