Here is the CPS sketch (#5, from way back in 2007!):
I really liked this sketch as soon as I saw it, and I knew exactly what I wanted to do. I couldn't wait to use the kite stamp from my new Hero Arts "Right at Home" set. First I stamped the Hero Arts cloud background, then stamped the kite right on top of it. Then I stamped the kite (minus the string) on each of four polka dot patterned papers by The Paper Studio. I cut each of the four section of the kite from a different color of patterned paper, and pieced them onto the kite that was stamped on the clouds. So CUTE! Now for the paper yummies:
The sentiment stamp is from the same set as the kite. I stamped it three times along a strip of patterned paper, then flag-cut the right end. I machine stitched around the clouds background with yellow thread, then I stitched right over the black ink of the kite and string with black thread. It may be difficult to see in the picture, but it's a fun way to add a little texture to the kite. Here's a close-up (click any picture to make it larger):
I'm also playing along at Hiding in My Craft Room #33: Super Scraps Saturday.
Thanks for looking!
