TCPTues265-Right Kind of Awesome

Welcome back for another TCPTuesday challenge with the Cat Pack. This go round we have a gorgeous color challenge. They are some of my favorite colors to work with right now, so I couldn't pass up the chance to play. Here's my sample. 

Here is the color board for this challenge. Pretty great, huh?

I used the flying Sprinkles image,Flying By (see links below). I stamped her in momento tuxedo black ink and then used my copics to color her up. I have a friend who is a pilot and this is my second attempt at sending her a card with this image. The first one got lost in the mail :( I then cut her out and used some foam adhesive to pop her up. I heat embossed the clouds with some white embossing powder on the Sno cone cardstock. I used the Framed Up 2 cut ups to showcase this focal image. The larger frame in the background was cut with vellum. I love the soft touch it adds to the card. 

Here is close up of the sentiment. It's my favorite! I stamped it in navy ink. I hate that navy is so hard to photograph. I use it alot and it always looks like black. Boo!

 I accented it with a few "arrows" from the Chevron cover plate. I added some enamel dots and sequins for a few more bits of fun!

We sure hope you'll play along. Stop by the TCP blog and our forum in SCS for all the details and inspiration.
