Beyond The Clouds


I am squeeking in on this CAS-ual Fridays #45 submission - about 90 minutes to go!  This week's challenge is to create a clean & simple project using pastels and black.  I used Copic markers to create this rainbow pattern - a technique I learned from last week's Make It Monday #58 tutorial on Nichole Heady's blog.  I used this week's Retrosketch #4 as my inspiration for the layout.  I really love this new challenge blog. I am really tickled with this creation.

 



Supplies
Stamps~PTI Movers and Shakers Sentiments, Scattered Showers.
Paper~Neenah Solar White, PTI White, Gina K Pure Luxury Black.
Ink~VersaFine Onyx Black.
Accessories~Copic Markers, PTI Cloud 1&2 die collection, Scattered Showers die collection, Tag Sale #5 die, Sunshine Impression plate; Dimensionals, corner rounder.

Thanks you so much for coming by today!
