Let your Heart take flight!

WooHoo! This is my fourth project completed this week. I should challenge myself every week. For those of you who have no idea what I am talking about, I challenged myself to create a project each day for this week (business days only). My other projects are posted on my AJ’s Alternative Endeavors blog. When you have time, hop on over.

This project is from the {ippity} April release, “Let your Heart take flight.” I love this set, but it did give me a moments pause. I know that it is and will be great for mixed-media art, but my self-challenge gave me only enough time for cards. I decided to keep it simple. Just a note: the entire {ippity} April release was designed by Angie Blom.

All of my cardstock is Stampin’ Up! I knew that I didn’t want to use designer papers, but I needed a base and I didn’t want just plain cardstock. I decided to use Spellbinder’s Impressabilities. I have had this particular one, Butterfly Garden, for some time now, so it was time to take it out of its package. After the embossing, I then used DI in Black Soot and Frayed Burlap to make the embossing pop. I like the effect.

I stamped the winged heart from the set in VersaMark Black and colored with my PrismaColor pencils. I like to switch my mediums up once in a while and this image seemed perfect for colored pencils. The sentiment was stamped and then cut out. This was a very easy project, and clean and simple.
Challenges that I am entering are:
Scrapbook Sisters – Anything Goes
Celebrate the Occasion – Anything Goes

If you are interested in this “Let your Heart take flight,” or any other {ippity} set, you can find them on my {ippity} sales blog. You can also shop {ippity} at the Unity website. You just have to pick me, Aletha Williams, as your {ippity} Chick. Shop for {ippity} and then add some Unity while you are at it.

Thanks for stopping by! I will have one more project tomorrow and I hope to see you again!

I'm Moving!
