Destination Unknown

Hello my crafty friends,

I'm here today to share this card that I've made with one of my new sets of  Invisible Image Stamps, which I'm loving, especially the 'Stay Wild' set, which I will share with you at a later time.  I wasn't sure what direction this card was going to go in but I'm happy with the outcome and I really like the colours for a masculine card:

My background was made using Memento Morocco, Distress Mermaid Lagoon and bleach.  I dabbed the ink onto my craft mat and then spritzed it with water before picking the ink up on the card.  The beach then lifts a little of the colour off.  I stamped the title and then the paper aeroplanes before adding the other words. Next, I stamped the planes again, fussy cut them out and then added them with a little shadow to give a little more dimension.  I joined them altogether using a fine liner before finishing off the words with a white highlighter pen.  There was still something missing at this point, so I took a small plastic cap and stamped some rings using Versafine Black Onyx and white acrylic paint. 

The sun is shining and my garden is calling for some attention so I'll leave you for today but I'll be back on Sunday with my card and a new challenge over at Fashionable Stamping Challenges.

Wishing you a happy day x

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:

I love the colours of the background, puts me in the mind of jasper and turquoise stones. The paper aeroplanes are genius and suit the wording perfectly. My garden will have to wait until the weekend, we had some rain overnight and had a warm day so the lawn is growing before our eyes!! xx
