Inkspirations 52 - Flying By Birthday

Hi all,

ahh time to get back into the groove with challenges :) This week was the first week back for the
Inkspiration challenge and well I had to play along. This week it was a colour challenge - here are the colours Keesh picked.

I decided to start working on building up my stash of birthday cards as I suspect I will need a few as the year rolls on as the kids attend birthday parties. I also had a super cute little aero-go-buzzer (otherwise known as a plane) stamp that I thought would be perfect. So here's what I came up with.

I started with a Baja Breeze panel and embossed that with the Cuttlebug Rellie Rave folder - makes a nice swirly background - think swirly winds. OK then I stamped the outline plane image - coloured it in using Riding Hood Red, Peach Parfait and a tiny touch of Baja Breeze. The trimmed it out. Next I cut some lovely fluffy white clouds out of white PTI felt. I used Tombow to stick my clouds to the embossed panel and then added my little plane up on dimensionals. To finish the front off I added a birthday banner embellishing it with some Baja Breeze buttons. The front panel was mounted onto a white mat and then a Baja base. The inside was simply stamped with the solid plane travelling across the card.

Kind of simple but a good one for boys I think - may'be even big boys ;)
