CASology - Let Your Dreams Soar!

It's another hot and humid day here in the Chicago area.  I had a few errands to run earlier and I brought Miss Moriko with me.  The ladies at the bank drive through made a fuss of her and asked how she's handling the weather.  I'm thinking she's ok since she insisted on the windows down!  We were both glad to get back home to the air conditioning!

I'm playing along with CASology this week.  It's been a while since I've played along, and when I saw the cue card this week I knew just the stamp set I wanted to play with! 

I reached for the Pretty Pink Posh Fly A Kite set!  I think after this card I am the Queen of masking!  LOL!  Nothing CAS about this card that took me to school! 

First I stamped the kites, masked them with cut out images I stamped on post it notes.  I even masked the little bows on the kite tails.
Next I stamped the clouds and masked those. Then I added the sunshine and masked that. I added the soft blue Broken Glass Distress Ink background with a clarity stencil brush.

When the sky was the perfect color I removed all the masks and colored the images with Copic markers.

I'm really happy with how it turned out and while I hate to admit it.. it was worth the effort!
