RHAPSODY IN BLUE AT HEART 2 HEART CHALLENGE
The first time I saw this Windy Day stamp set (D1579) I knew what I would do - a side step card with my favorite little spring for the kite. I've had the Martha Stewart fringe scissors for several years and rarely use them, but they were perfect for the grass. I wanted the hill, so using the cuts on the CTMH Cricut cartridges wasn't a good option.
You can see how well the spring lifts the kite off the page. I used embroidery floss for the string and ran it behind the girl, wrapping it around the spool for some realism.
The cloud is embossed with white (and I'm so glad that CTMH has brought back the embossing powders!!) and used the White Daisy reinker with an eye makeup applicator to color it in.
The flowers are from an old Stamp of the Month - Flowering Bunch.
I used colored pencils and odorless mineral spirits to color the little girl, and used a combination of old markers on the flowers. Can't wait to try the new alcohol markers that will be in the Annual Inspirations Book from CTMH beginning in August!
"Fly" on over to the Heart 2 Heart Challenge Blog to see the other blue projects with an optional music theme. And thanks for taking time to stop by my blog!
