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.

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 . Thank you so much for posting your very beautiful art in the #232-#233 - Anything Goes FF Word Art Wednesday Challenge.
Blessings, Carole

Wow Maxine, this is a fabulous masculine card!! I swear your background looks like it is pattern paper. I love how you did it, the inking, the embossing, the planes (which are totally fabulous and every boy's dream) and the script stamping all come together and make for one amazing background! I am totally in love with this card. Hugs, Brenda

Such a cool card for a grandson. Love the design on this, those bi-planes were so unique in the shape of the plane. You did a lot of work with the masking, and placement, and it looks just wonderful. Bet he has a big smile when he sees this one! You're a nice Grandma! TFS & Hugs
