What's Up with Cheery Lynn Designs


Sandy Hulsart here with you today.  Lori noticed a card on my blog and asked if she could use it for today's Cheery Lynn post but I told her I would make another similar one instead.  I began with my Old Parchment XL embossing plate and a piece of Cryogen Metallic paper 4 x 5.25 inches.  I dry embossed the panel and then used Distress ink along the edges of the paper lightly continuing across the middle.  I thought the embossing looked a lot like a cloudy sky.   Next I added a piece of the new Winter Neighborhood border across the bottom, also die cut from Cryogen Metallic paper.  I added some yellow card stock behind the windows and then lightly colored the grass and trees with a G40 Copic marker.


Next came the Clouds to which I added a bit of Distress ink so you would not lose them on the embossed background.  I die cut the new Hot Air Balloon from card stock, then cut the matching angel wing out of Cryogen Metallic and colored it in with my Copic markers.  I popped the balloon up for some added dimension.  The last step was the sentiment created with Cheery Lynn's Mini Font.  Finished size is 4.25 x 5.5 inches. 

Don't forget that Cheery Lynn Designs is running a Design Team Call.  You can check out the details here.
