Cut Loose

Hello, all! Here is a card that I made for this month's challenge over at Inspiration Journal.


This month's challenge is "Go Fly a Kite." Use a kite (or kites) in your projects and enter for a chance to win 50 Emporium Dollars to use in the Inspiration Emporium Store. You can find all the details here and more inspirations here.


I colored Tim Holtz' tissue tapes with Tumbled Glass, Spiced Marmalade and Mustard Seed distress markers using a water brush to create the background and kites. The kite stamp is from Cut Loose set by Paper Smooches and I finally dug out my Dymo to create the sentiment.

That's all for now. Don't forget to submit your projects/cards with kites here for a chance to win. You can also use discount code wonderland to receive 10% off your entire order at check out when you shop at Inspiration Emporium! =)
