Saying Hi!

Morning.  This month I am the guest designer at the Addicted to CAS Challenge blog so I wanted to make another card for the 'TRANSPORT' code word challenge.
I began my card by applying Gesso over a stencil.  When dry, I rubbed Distress ink (Ocean Blue and Peacock Feathers) over the gesso being sure to keep the darker ink close to the top and fading the lighter out at the bottom.  I then took a baby wipe and rubbed over all of it to blend the gesso with the ink for a more 'cloudy' look.  
Isn't that little guy just the cutest!  I stamped him with Memento black then coloured with Copics and cut him out so I could pop dot him over the bkg.  Added the sentiment to the faded blue area.  

Also adding my card to there challenges:

Simon Says- STENCIL

Artistic Inspirations- ANYTHING GOES/SUMMER FUN

Eureka Stamps- FRIENDS

Love to Create- ANYTHING GOES

Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.

Supplies:  stamps- The Cat's Pajamas/ Gesso/ stencil-Tim Holtz/ Copic markers/ pop dots/ Distress ink
