Pieces of SkyPosted: August 12, 2012 Filed under: Birds on wire, CAS, OLW, Wishing You 21 Comments
I managed to create cards for two challenges this afternoon: the OLW challenge Cheryl set us to use some form of transportation and the Less is More challenge to feature fur or feathers. Let me tell you I was not overflowing with ideas for either challenge. But then I noticed the little airplane stamp in the set I used last week with the fish stamp. Perfect for transportation.
One of Chrissie’s cards for the Less is More challenge reminded me of my birds on a wire stamp, as yet uninked. Perfect for feathers.
Have a wonderful week.
Stamps: Wishing You, Birds on Wire, Happy Birthday (PB)
Inks: Memento Summer Sky, Danube Blue, Nautical Blue, Sweet Plum, Versafine Onyx Black(Tsukineko)
love both – how did you make the sky background on the plane?
That square of sky on your first card is absolutely perfect! Feel free to have another photo tutorial. 😀 I also really like the slightly more stormy effect on the second card. Perfect masking.
Heather, both of your cards are so nice. I love the piece of sky with the airplane, great coloring 🙂
I love them!
Marvelous cards — love the backgrounds!
Both are beautiful ~ love your sponged clouds!
WOW!! The are stunning.
Love your use of colours, you always get it ‘spot on’.
Love Sheila x
Love the birds, love that dramatic inking.
Just fab Heather
Thanks so much for your continued participation, we so love to see your work at Less is More
A silhouette on an inked background is always an effective technique and I love the way you’ve created very different moods with your backgrounds here.
Love this layout and how you’ve shown how versatile it can be!
Heather these designs are beyond eye catching! Just love those masked squares of color and the stamped images!
Two beautiful cards Heather 🙂 Viv xx
Love both your creations. Specilly the first one. love the sentiment.
I just love every card that you create Heather. These two are no exception. Love your sponging to create the skies.
Fantastic cards, as always! The plane looks like it’s flying out of the card into the wide blue yonder through a portal, and I love the twilight background on the second card.
You really do make the most stylish cards, so simple & yet so very effective 🙂
These are fabulous, Heather. LOVE these wonderful CAS designs.
Love your LIM card (great colours) but my hubby would really LOVE your plane card
Amazing as ever Heather
Thanks very much

Oh my goodness, what a brilliant, inspirational idea, I just love how you’ve captured a tiny square of blue sky for the aeroplane to fly towards,totally brilliant!
