Flying High for Making Cards


This is one of three cards I made for the last edition of Making Cards magazine using Stamposaurus transport stamps. I stamped the image and sentiment onto kraft card with brown ink, I used a red Copic marker and mounted it onto paper from the Dovecraft North Pole paper pad. Lots of distressing and doodling faux stitching. The clouds were made with  Memory Box dies.

Having a day at home today. I need to do a stockcheck ready for my end of financial year accounts. The weather is predicted to be awful so if it is we shall be staying indoors but if it is nice we may get out in the garden to do some tidying. Enjoy your Easter Sunday.

Very effective card. The image looks great with just the pop of red.
The weather down here by the Thames doesn't seem to be able to make up its mind what to do - we've had rain but currently the sun is shining although the clouds are building again.
Whatever you decide to do, enjoy your day.
