Clear as Day

Another card for a challenge blog!  This one is for CAS-ual Fridays (CAS stands for Clean and Simple); Challenge 57 is to use vellum or acetate on a card.  I have a number of pieces of printed vellum that have been in my stash for ages (not surprised, are you?) and it's high time I started using them.  The marble-look paper I used to stamp the image on is a scrap left over from a larger piece that a friend gave me - I'm pretty sure she used alcohol inks to get that lovely effect.  Of course, more scraps were used for the mat and the strip down the center. The layout I used for this card comes from Operation Write Home's vast library of card sketches.  I am finding that using their sketches really opens my mind to new possibilities.  This one is #124.

The colors on this card are so soft and lovely. So glad I took time to catch up on blogs today. You have been very busy and creative. Love that you are participating in the challenges. I still have a lot of family stuff going on... Mom's illness is progressing. I will get back to regular art one day, but for now it is still a great treat.
