Can You Case It 143

I was so pleased to see Can You Case It Challenge come back after a hiatus and especially that there was a longer challenge over the holidays which gave me a chance to play around with this really lovely sketch.

I've taken the opportunity to have another play around with a new set from the about-to-be-released Occasions catalogue, Lift Me Up and matching dies.

The DSP is a Sale-a-bration item. I kept the embellishments to a minimum because the balloon paper is quite busy but it gives the stamped balloons something to stand out from, or "soar above".

Despite there being cloud stamps with the set, I sponged a cloud background for the blue balloon and I wanted it to look like a window. Other than that, I decided to keep the lines clean and crisp so did not do any other background stamping.

Update: Delighted to be a Top Pick at Can You Case It.

Card: Night of Navy, Watermelon Wonder, Whisper White, Carried Away DSP
Stamps: Lift Me Up
Inks: Night of Navy, Watermelon Wonder, Marina Mist
Other: Up & Away thinlits, sponge, dimensionals
