Clean & Simple Monday with TLC

Well, I can hardly believe it myself...I actually got to play along with the CAS challenge on SCS this morning!  It's a rainy morning here. The kind with thunder and lightening.  We need the rain badly as this is fire season in Florida due to the dry winter.

Ok, on to my card.  The CAS challenge this week (CAS112) is to Cut up your Sentiments.  This is something I don't think I've ever done.  I combined it with the Technique Challenge on SCS (TLC318), Follow the Edge.  I'm a pretty straightforward stamper as I fail miserably at the fancy techniques but this one is easy...



I've had this adorable Penny Black stamp for awhile but I've been afraid to ink it up because I'm not great at coloring.  I love this sweet image because this little boy loves all the things our grandson does..airplanes, his dog, kites, and football.  I tried to color the dog like their dog, Nick, who's black and white. 

The stars on the kite tail and airplance sparkle as well as the button on his shirt and the propeller on the plane but I couldn't capture it with my camera.  The background is lightly sponged in blue.  I outlined the boy with a T1 Copic to give the image some depth.

Thanks so much for stopping by!!  Hope to get the PTI challenge in the morning...now that would be a miracle!

Supplies:
Paper - Neenah Solar White, Bazzill Linen Texture Red, SU blue
Ink - Memento black, Copic markers, Sakura Glitter pen Silver and Glaze Yellow
Accessories - Glue dots, Scissors

Pin It!
