The Sky is the Limit

It is time for another CAS Colours & Sketches challenge. Check out the latest challenge:


And here is my take:

Sky's the Limit | by karen @ carefree creations

Another classic sketch – so easy to use. I had tons of ideas. I finally settled on the hot air balloons mostly because I hadn’t used them in a while (we won’t talk about the sets I haven’t used at all yet).

I wanted this to be a fun, upbeat card, so I chose some fun, upbeat colors. To help ground the images, I sponged some light blue on the card base.

The peach balloon is taped down, just in the center, onto the card base; then the edges are pulled up some. The pink balloon is popped up on dimensionals.

I hope you join us at CAS Colours & Sketches!

Thanks for stopping by!
