Twisted Tuesday Challenge


Good Morning!  Today I'm posting my card for the Twisted Tuesday Challenge blog.  This is our first challenge so I hope you will join us!  This week's challenge was a great one!  We were to create a card with clouds on it, but the twist was that they couldn't be stamped. 

I began making my card by first stamping the bunny image.  Before I sponged my background I needed to make a mask to cover up the bunny so that it would remain white.  The rest of my bunny image was colored using SU markers.

I actually used clouds two ways on my card.  I sponged some clouds onto the background of my card using a punched out scallop circle punch, bashful blue ink, and a sponge wedge (the sponging is a bit heavier towards the top and lighter towards the bottom/grassy area).  Then I also made a few clouds using the create a cupcake punch and then I embossed them using the manhattan flower embossing folder and I placed them on my card.

Next, I stamped the bunny image again and this time I colored the egg balloon, cut it out and placed it over top of my first stamped image.  I did this because I wanted the cloud to be behind the balloon plus I didn't have to worry about masking the balloon when I was sponging my background.  I did a small bit of paper piecing on the green part of the balloon using the same designer series paper that I used for the grassy area.

My grassy area was made by cutting some designer series paper using the adorning accents edgelits die.  My sentiment was stamped and punched out using the word window punch and then I layered it using the modern label punch (I punched out two pretty in pink pieces and I layered them so that they would fit nicely behind my bashful blue punched layer.  Next, I added a brad on each side of my sentiment and it's adhered onto my card using dimensionals.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I can't wait to see everyone's cloud creations!  Have a great day!

Adorable! That is what this card is.

I so love the clouds you created. They add to the scene so much.

I would not have thought to use DP for the grass area - good one!

Great take on the challenge. Congratulations, on your first one!
