Two Card Challenges completed! Woo Hoo!

I’ve pulled off not one but TWO card challenges in the past few days despite being extremely busy.  Here we go:

Simon Says “Things that FLY”


I used a fun 6 x 6 paper from Basic Grey “Hey Boy” and I added a silvery airplane I traced and modified and cut out of shiny vinyl..  Next I added some velum cut into cloudshapes and I used some silver daubers and then added some water and pearlescent paint and voila it crackled the clouds to look 3d.  I lined them with a marker so they were more visible.  Next I layered up the Stamped Sentiment by Paper Smooches and tied the plane together with it with some bakers twine. 

The Card Concept #30 “Thinking of YOU”


I used sheet of 6 x 6 from Kristin Cronin Barrow’s Blank Canvas.  I stamped using a Hero Arts sentiment and washed over the middle part with Orange Tom Bow. 


I’ve had these sweet paper flowers around for a while – I made them myself and kind of forgot them in a drawer.  I hand cut the leaves. 

Thanks for stopping by!
