Featured Product- Artistry Cartridge

Hello and welcome to our CTMH Featured Products Blog Hop. This week our featured product is the Close To My Heart Artistry Cartridge for the Cricut.

If you have just joined us you can start here and continue on, as this is a circular hop or if you get lost along the way you can find the complete list at the end of this post.   If you came here from Annette you are in the right place. Now on to my project:

Here are the pieces I cut from the Artistry cartridge. The kite comes in two layers, and I also cut this sweet bird on a branch. I also cut a cloud from the cartridge- colour doesn't matter for what I need it for!

I used the cloud as a stencil for my sponging to create a cloud background. I simply moved it across a piece of 4 x 5 1/4 White Daisy cardstock, sponging with Lagoon ink.

Each layer is slightly different, and I kept moving the cloud across the page and sponging in a left to right movement.

Here is my finished sponged background, complete with the kite, bird and a sentiment.

And here is my completed card! I love the touch of the glitter triangles on the kite to make the bows stand out, and the sentiment is stamped in Desert Sand ink from the For Family stamp set.
