Blue skies...


Sorry to be a bit late posting my Dynamic Duos card this week - I've been at a demonstrator day having crafty fun and have just gotten home (hubby had cooked dinner bless him!) and begun to unwind... anyway, enough jibber jabber - here are this week's colours...

I ended up with something completely different to the idea I started with, but was quite happy with how it turned out..

I really wanted to use the new cloudy day embossing folder but mine didn't arrive in time, so I had to go to plan B - cupcakes! Yep, those clouds are the top of the cupcake from Create-a-Cupcake, some stamped in white ink and others embossed in white EP. I die-cut a frame in the middle of the turqouise panel with a window framelits die and popped this panel over a white of whisper white that I spritzed with Tempting Turqouise reinker and water. I stamped the boat (from Need for Speed) into the window then again on a separate piece, colouring with markers and then cutting out and popping it up over the first image with dimensionals.  The sentiment is from Up, up & away, stamped on Sahara Sand and layered with circle punches. I added a banner of turqouise card with some matching brads attached and layered this over a strip of Twitterpated dsp.

I used this week's Freshly Made Sketch for my layout...

Make sure you check out the fab creations of the rest of the design team!

Thanks for stopping by...
