Reach For The Sky

Been trying to catch up on some challenges today to make up for lost time yesterday (any excuse for more crafting huh?! LOL). This card is for Charisma Cardz Challenge #30 Up in the Clouds, The Sweet Stop's Sketch Challenge #222, Just Add Ink's Challenge #176 to make a man's card, for F4A180 to use arrows and for ColourQ's Challenge #200 to use this colour combo below! Phew. Told you I was trying to catch up!

And finally here it is - a fairly simple one, but I used my SU markers to colour in the balloons rather than my Copics and I realised how much better Copics are for colouring in! I don't actually use my SU markers very often now and lots of them have fraying nibs too. I'll probably just run them out and then dump them! They have lasted me at least 4-5 years so not too bad!


Stamps: Up, Up & Away, Framed Out #5 both from Papertrey Ink

Papers: Old Olive, Midnight Muse, Whisper White all from Stampin' Up

Inks: Marina Mist, Midnight Muse, Basic Black, SU Markers in Old Olive, So Saffron, Midnight Muse, Marina Mist all from Stampin' Up

Accessories: Clouds II Dies, Up, Up & Away Dies both from Papertrey Ink

And that's all from me for this post folks! Thanks for stopping by!
