As with the first card, this one is also a sympathy card AND is going into the current challenge at
CAS-ual Fridays CFC37 - here's Laura's sketch...
It might be difficult to see the variation of colors in sky, in these photos. It's much easier to see IRL. I punched a piece of white card stock using a round scallop SU punch then used that as a mask for creating the clouds in the sky. I just kept moving it and sponging more color across the sky. It's really very easy. Before removing the masks, I stamped my images. Except the palm frond at the top of the panel. I removed the mask before stamping it outside the "sky" area, to add a little depth (at least I hope it does!).
Below the sentiment I added a narrow strip of card stock. That's about it :)
Thank you so much for stopping in to take a look. I appreciate it!
