Today I want to show you a cute birthday card I made. I really love the Stamptember 2018 Mama Elephant / Simon Says Stamp Merry Mail stamp set and I wanted to use it on a non-christmas card. This is what I came up with:
First, I ink softly blended the background with Spun Sugar and Shaded Lilac Distress Oxides with a cloud stencil. Then I stamped the Banner from “Animal Parade” and masked of the pole, so that I could make a flying banner out of it. I stamped the adorable little plane, but this time I hat to kick Santa out, because it’s just not his time yet! I masked him off, so that I could only stamp the plane. For some reason, instead of masking the stamp so that I could only stamp the plane, I cut a mask, adhered it to my paper and then stamped the plane on top. I did not get the best stamping result and had to redraw a few of the lines. Only after about 10 attempts and the final one with lines drawn in did I realize that I could have just masked the stamp while adding my ink. Oh well… Maybe next time! 😂 I also stamped some clouds from the “Wish Upon a Star” stamp set and two little present parachutes. The cute conductor from the “Little Train Agenda” Set will be flying my plane today!
Then I watercolored everything using Kuretake Zig Markers. I stamped the sentiment from the “Animal Parade” set and heat embossed it in white. I cut a little slit under my pilots arm and added him to the plane with liquid glue. Then I adhered all my images using foam tape and drew in the lines to connect the banner and the plane. To finish my card I adhered it to an A2 sized card base. I hope you liked the card and Santa forgives me for kicking him out of his own plane!
Thank you for stopping by and have a great day!
