Taking to the Air.........

This week we are celebrating modes of transportation and in that vain - I've focused on getting from point A to point B via the big blue sky.

I used an old favorite Lawn Fawn stamp set for this first project.  I used Versamark ink to stamp the image and then embossed it in black embossing powder.  I used a Tim Holtz distress marker in the color pumice stone to highlight the paper airplane.  Then I took some Tim Holtz distress ink in Shaded Lilac and inked up the background of the image.  I rounded the corners with the We R Memory Keepers corner chomper.  The background is some cool hombre paper from Memory Makers that I found at Target.  I think I'm going to have to get some more.  I can see lots of potential for that paper.  I've used it on several projects today.

 The tools I used to make this card.

The final product.  I forgot to mention I used water color paper and then after inking with Distress Ink, I sprayed some water for the beading effect.

You can see the irridescant enamel dots that I found at Target, too, just tops off the card.

You can travel by hot air balloon, too.  This stamp is by Unity.  I used a background I made using another technique for this balloon.  You can find the technique here:  Bokeh Made Easy

I used Versamark ink to ink up the balloon stamp and then embossed in some blue glitter embossing powder that I had lying around.  I think it is left over from some Christmas cards I made a couple years back.  I popped up the balloon on foam tape and used some more of that hombre paper from Memory Makers to layer the image.

I hope you've enjoyed todays projects.  I really like expanding my horizons.  I lean towards more girly cards and this is a chance for me to get out of  my comfort zone.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  Make it, live it and share it.
