Things With Wings........



This week's Cute Card Thursday Challenge is to create a card using something that has wings. Well, LOTS of things have wings.....but I thought airplanes would be a little unexpected!!

I got this awesome Riley stamp from Phebe at The Town Scrapper! This one and the one in the comfy chair are the only ones I have. I HAVE to get more Rileys!! I started by stamping Riley and his plane on a piece of Bashful Blue cardstock and again on Wausau bright white cardstock. The idea was that he was flying through the sky, which needed to be blue, but I didn't want to have to colour that huge area. So I stamped on the sentiment and then coloured the one on white using my Copic markers and then cut it out. I glued it onto the Bashful Blue piece including the tiny little clouds and voila...he's flying through the blue sky!



I did both these cards at the same time but using different patterned papers and colours. Both dp's are from a DCWV stack, but I can't remember which one. For the paper that has stars on it, I chose the sentiment 'Reach for the Stars' and the other one I made more generic and chose 'Have fun on your day'. I used a trio of shiny silver star brads on each one and added some tiny So Saffron star punches to decorate the sky. I finished them off by adding a couple of silver brads in the top corners and some striped Wild Wasabi grosgrain ribbon.

Good thing I have today off from work, because I actually feel worse today than I did yesterday! Don't know if I'll get any stamping done.....I really feel like going back to bed right now. Maybe I'll go have a nap!
