My son's girlfriends sister has recently been accepted for her dream job, a posting in the RAF. My son wanted a card to congratulate her but it had to be appropriate too.
I created the base card background by using chalks dusted over a cloud shape scrap of paper to give a billowy cloud covered blue sky.
I decided rather than stamping an image onto this background I would stamp and colour with promarkers then fussy cut the image before attaching to the card. The image is a stamp I had made several years ago from one of my drawings I did for my son who was Top Gun mad at the time so it seemed perfect.
When I put it on the card it just didn't look right so I came up with the idea of applying to an acetate cover which I felt worked much better. The sentiment is simply a peel-off which I know many crafters don't like but sometimes I think they just suit the card better than a stamped sentiment.
I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:-
