Cardz 4 Guyz - Flight

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

I do hope you are having a good week here we are at Tuesday already. We are off to the theatre tonight. The local  theatre did a good offer on a murder mystery play and it would have been rude not to.

This is my last Guest Design Team card for Cardz 4 Guyz this time the theme is Flight. I have really enjoyed making the cards for this months challenges.  I find I am more creative when I have a theme to work to. I do hope they will have me back sometime. Why not come and join in the fun?


The design started with some vintage pictures of planes and that set the tone of the card.
I had the backing paper in my stash I loved the strong colours and the bold lines.


I had a few similar images and I did want to use them all on the card. In the end I decided it was all too cluttered so I settled for just one focal image. 


I stamped the sentiment with Sepia ink. I have been using this stamp a lot lately. I have the Spellbinders matting basics dies and this stamp fits well inside one of the smaller ones and it is easy to make a mat for it. 


I have a hot air balloon die and I used it to cut a page from an old music book I inked through the die before I removed the paper. Other elements on the card were cut from a 12" x 12" page and inked them to make them look older.


I have really enjoyed being Guest on Cardz 4 Guyz. I hope the rest of the week is kind to you.  

Happy Crafting

Hugs Jackie
