I colored it mostly with pencils. (Coloring is another thing I get little practice with, and have little to work with) Then I just tried to think of ways to add dimension, and texture, and interest...and this is what I came up with...
I was kinda proud of my homemade embossing/impression plate for the sky/front...that was an attempt to add texture...but by the time I cut out the opening for the plane...there isn't much of it left to see. The little clouds are from a really loosely woven fabric. I started out with creme burlap but it was too bulky...amazing the difference the more delicate fabric made! The colorful strip at the bottom (to mix up the blue, green, red colors) was stamped on a diagonal with little images from a few different sets. I kinda like how that added color and pulled everything together. I needed a bigger sentiment than what came with the plane, so I did my own on the computer, cut the little banner strip, folded the end and strung some twine through as if it could be pulled by the plane.
So glad I "took the bull by the horns"! I kinda like how this little card, very much out of my comfort zone, turned out. Hope you like it, too!
Thanks so much for stopping by! I really appreciate your visits!!
