The cloudburst card I want to show you today is for a 1 year old boy. I'm going with the flow and made a nautical themed creation. The sketch is from Tuesday Morning Sketches #168 and I gave it a full 180º turn. Then off to Color Throwdown #214 I went to pick the colours.
And this my card:
|When I saw the colour palette I knew it had to be Crate Paper's Toy Box. It just screams "boy"|
|Since this going by mail, I kept it nice and flat. No pop dots, tape or high heels. I used 2 Spellbinder dies on this card: Small Deckled Mega Rectangles to frame the ocean and Postage Stamp custom dies to frame the image.|
|I scallop cut strips of the blue paper for textural effect.|
|And here's the inside.|
Papers: "Toy Box" 6x6 pad by Crate Paper
Stamp: "Half Pint Heroes" by WaltzingMouse Stamps
Memento Inks: Tuxedo Black; Rich Cocoa; Bamboo Leaves
