A Moving Card

Hello Everybody!

Tonight I made a card for the challenge going on at Inkspirational.  It's for my sister who moved not too long ago.  My mom-in-law was sweet enough to lend me the Beyond Celebrations Cricut Cartridge to use this image on it.  But I didn't really have the mojo until I saw the color combo challenge at Inkspirational.

I am also entering this card in the Anything Goes Challenge at Catch the Bug.

It's a simple card but fun to make.  I cut the first image out of white cardstock and then the second image which was a shadow out of black cardstock.

Here's the cool part-I colored them with gelatos.  All 3 colors came from the 50's diner set.  And I just rubbed the gelatos with my finger.  No water.  I like how the edge around the card turned out.  Maybe next time I will add a bit more color.  I was trying not to over do it-which I am more that capable of doing-LOL!  The letter stickers are from Dear Lizzy.


Here are the colors.  And there is still time to play along-this challenge closes Monday evening some time.


Thanks for stopping by!  Until next time my friends...stay crafty! :)
