Come Fly With Me .... lets fly, lets fly away !!



So ....my lovely OH has a birthday coming up in April.  Now he hates Social Media and never ever reads my Blog so I am safe to share this here and now.




I tried a watercolour technique for the first time, by loading up my huge acrylic block with shades of Tempting Turquoise, Bermuda Bay, Island Indigo, Gumball Green and Old Olive using my Stampin' Write Marker Pens and spritzed with my Stampin' Spritzer.  I then applied this to a piece of watercolour paper and was left with a gorgeous colour washed background.    The technique is demonstrated
here: 



I left this to dry and then stamped on some trees to create a little forest using my gorgeous set Lovely as a Tree.  

The Sky is the Limit has this fantastic image of a biplane - perfect for masculine cards which I stamped in Basic Gray.  This Sale-A-Bration stamp was only available until 19 February so I am really pleased I snapped one up.  However ...... I do believe a few do remain available as a few of my fellow demos have managed to get their hands on them last week !!

The bold sentiment is from the Hostess Set Happy Birthday, Everyone.

Finally I adhered the finished piece onto Black and Cherry Cobbler layers, adding a touch of striped Cherry Cobbler crossgrain ribbon  and applied them to a 5 1/2 square card base in Whisper White.

Well, I hope you like this little experiment of mine.   Its definitely a technique I will be using again.

Thank you for stopping by today and ...................happy crafting !!!
