CAS and Masculine


Hello Stampin friends, Today over at The Paper Players, Anne Marie is our sweet hostess and she has selected Masculine for our CAS week. I struggle with both Masculine cards and Clean and Simple cards, so this one I had to give some serious thought to. I was staring up at my old SU stamps that are all lined up above my head over my work space and I spotted this great set called Lift Me Up. I thought the hot Air Balloons would be perfect. Plus they have long been neglected.

Card Details: First I made my background with some torn copy paper, a circle stencil and some Oxide inks. I am sure you are not surprised! LOL I decided the sky needed some clouds so I pulled out my favorite ones from MFT. I love that they have an outline to them. The sentiment is from the same set as the Balloons-Lift Me Up. Long retired I am sure.
