Head In The Clouds!

Sunday, 24 February 2013

Hi everyone!

Do you ever have days when you've been really busy doing loads of little jobs that needed done but you would never know you had done anything?  I've been having a few days like that this week, but at least I know the little things are done now!

Anyway, another challenge for you, this time it's the Pink teams turn at Eclectic Ellapu and the fabulous Claire's turn to host and choose what the theme is and she chose....


A difficult one for most people, including myself!  So I've had this one sitting in the "wings" waiting for a while so it could "swoop" in and save the day!  (sorry for the terrible punnage!)

I had made it for my dad for his birthday and we had gotten him flying lessons for his present so I made my card to suit that!

Here it is:

The image is from a set called Giraffes from The Paper Shelter and I coloured it with the following copics: Giraffe; YR24,23,21,E41,40,39,37,29 Plane; C9,7,3,1,00,110,R39,37,27. Sky; B000,0000.  I cut the image out with Spellbinder die Labels 6.

I also decoupaged the image and added some glossy accents and googly eyes!

I used some plane  ;)  blue card for the background and painted some white around the edges.  I've had these arrow brads in my stash for ages and thought they would go with the card.  The sentiments are computer generated (font; AR Carter) and cut out with Memory Box Marshmallow Clouds dies.  Ribbon is from my stash.

The inside has similar details as the front and a LOTV sentiment.

So pop over to Eclectic Ellapu to see all the other fab makes by the rest of the DT!

I'd like to enter my card in the following challenges:
