Silver Bi-plane Birthday

Welcome

This card was made for a grandson's recent birthday.


I started by stamping and embossing the sentiment, and then coloured the letters with coloured pencils, and masked it.


I then stamped the bi-planes with Espresso Ink, masking as I went, then I partially over-stamped with a script stamp to form a background feature, then sponged a sky-scape behind with a home made 'cloud' mask, darkening the sky as I went up the card.
 

the bi-planes were then painted with silver Inka Gold.


The finishing detail of the feature panel was to add Glossy Accents to the letters.
All stamps were from Kiwistamping.

  2. What young man doesn't dream of flying, too often off the roof with cardboard wings. This is such a perfect image for a birthday card. I really like the GA over the sentiment .
