Flying High

Whilst I was busy stamping watercolour effect backgrounds I made a second card, this time for the challenge which goes live today at The Male Room. It's a special day too as we are welcoming four new designers to the team! Today's challenge is a theme and, somewhat predictably (although we are a challenge blog for cards for guys, so we have a very valid excuse) we have chosen

And here is my card

I used two inks, Tempting Turquoise and Crushed Curry to make my skyscape for the little plane to fly out of. I don't own the stamp, I just borrowed it from the craft club leader. It is stamped in Always Artichoke.

I made a banner and stamped the greeting also from a stamp set which I borrowed (it's fun to play with other people's stash and share yours too!). After fussy cutting out the banner I popped it up on 
foam. I had the idea of it trailing behind the plane but just couldn't get it to work here.

I love the way the ink has pooled and dripped and spread over the shimmer cardstock.
There is a fun watercolour challenge at another CAS challenge blog AAA cards which I will pop this card into.


  1. Gorgeous watercoloured background strip, the colours are so vivid. You might want to pop this into AAA Cards current challenge.

  2. Oooooh this watercolor background is fantastic!! Love the plane image stamped on it. Striking. Thanks so much for joining us at AAA Cards for our watercolor challenge.

  3. Striking background, and great man card!

  4. Fantastic Father's Day card :-)) beautiful background and I like how you added the sentiment above the plane.
    Hugs, Andreja
