I was inspired by the colors and layout of the Little Tangles inspiration photo.
And I'm sharing my card at Penny Black and More - Anything Goes with a Stamp.
Ready for this?... I needed a card with the following message: "Congratulations - heard you're moving up the corporate ladder." The recipient? A priest friend who is leaving his parish to take a position at the Archdiocese! Maybe I should mention he has a great sense of humor - I hope ;)
This is what I created.
Taped down my cardbase. Applied a light watercolor wash to imitate grass and sky. Used Neat and Tangled's On the Strip 2 to create the ladder. Then I masked the ladder and heat embossed some heavenly clouds using Essentials by Ellen Up the Happy. I watercolored inside the clouds with white but you can hardly see it.
I used the word die from Essentials by Ellen Zipper Panel, cut from glitter CS (heavenly) and red craft foam (thanks inspiration photo). Didn't photograph the inside, but I wrote "heard you're moving up the" and used my Dymo labelmaker for "corporate ladder".
This card is in MI with me. Hope the priest gets as big a kick out of it as I did! Thanks for visiting today.
