It's an AiFactory blog hop!


Welcome to the AiFactory blog hop! If you arrived from Carole's blog then you are on the right track. If not, go to the AiFactory Challenge Blog and start at the beginning. There's a new design team at AiFactory, and I'm one of them! Hop with all the new designers and a few of the current ones, too!

Today I'm sharing with you a card with an adorable stamp, Ella on Cloud 9 - isn't she sweet?!?!


I love the fact that Ella is floating up in the sky, so I tried out a new-to-me technique: sponging a background over a masked image. I printed out a second copy of Emma on some scrap paper, cut very close to the image, then used some 2-in-1 glue to turn my mask into a "sticky note". Once the mask was on, I cut some scrap cardstock with my largest scallop nestie. The scalloped oval then became my other mask for the clouds. Starting at the top and working my way down, I sponged blue ink around Emma. Then I colored her in with Prismas & OMS, adding a little sparkle with my Sakura Stardust pen. A little white penwork on the heart, and done! Some yummy Bo Bunny papers complete the card. I used this week's sketch over at CPS, too.

We will randomly pick one comment from one of the DT's blogs to win a $20 Gift Certificate to the AiFactory store. Whose blog is a secret, so make sure you comment on them all! The drawing will take place on February 10 at 11:30pm EST.

Thanks for visiting today! Now you are off to Kerry's blog to continue the hop!
