Welcome to Studio 5380 and happy Monday to you.
I've been running around the house doing the usual "Monday Stuff" - got some laundry done, cleaned a bathroom or two...you know....the usual boring stuff that somebody's gotta do. So, I figured I had earned a break after that second potty...whew....and got myself upstairs to my Studio!
While visiting a few of my favorite sites, I saw that it's time for another fun Anything Goes Challenge over at the Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge Blog. Which is perfect timing because I happen to have on hand a very sweet stamp set that I recently received from my equally sweet friend, Esther from Arcadia de Papel. I love it when things work out like that :)
So, here's my card for the Anything Goes Challenge...
After stamping this cute kite from the "Cut Loose" stamp set, I loosely colored the background with a BG000 Copic Marker. I wanted to the color to be light and sort of "swirly". I always have a hard time capturing the shimmer in a photo, but the clouds are covered with clear Wink of Stella Marker and have a great shimmer.
The hello sentiment is from the "Scripty Sayings" stamp set.
Both sets are available from Paper Smooches.
I added a bit of wonky machine stitching around the edges of my card before paper-piecing and popping up my bright, colorful kite.
Thank you so much for stopping by today! I'm off to link up my card then it's back to chasing those dang dust bunnies! Have a wonderful day and I'll see you soon....
