Pieces of Sky

I managed to create cards for two challenges this afternoon: the OLW challenge Cheryl set us to use some form of transportation and the Less is More challenge to feature fur or feathers.  Let me tell you I was not overflowing with ideas for either challenge.  But then I noticed the little airplane stamp in the set I used last week with the fish stamp. Perfect for transportation.

One of Chrissie’s cards for the Less is More challenge reminded me of my birds on a wire stamp, as yet  uninked. Perfect for feathers.

Have a wonderful week.


Stamps: Wishing You,  Birds on Wire,  Happy Birthday (PB)
Inks: Memento Summer Sky, Danube Blue, Nautical Blue, Sweet Plum, Versafine Onyx Black(Tsukineko)

    That square of sky on your first card is absolutely perfect! Feel free to have another photo tutorial. 😀 I also really like the slightly more stormy effect on the second card. Perfect masking.

    Fantastic cards, as always! The plane looks like it’s flying out of the card into the wide blue yonder through a portal, and I love the twilight background on the second card.
