Prepare to fly

Welcome to my second inspiration make for the July Stamplorations Theme & Sketch challenge, which brings my GDT stint to a close.

It can be difficult to create something with both constraints of Theme AND Sketch but I felt I was duty bound to show I could do it! [To enter the challenge,  you can do either ]

 Without further ado, my card:

I created a circle stencil and applied Distress inks through it, over-stamping the bird from the Trendy Birds 2 set with Versafine black ink. I added 3 of the sentiments below each bird, in a "Ready, steady, Go" type of concept.

I cut the card with one of the Stitched Snow Hills CUT-plorations and added a piece of patterned paper (from a very old, K & Co pad).

I layered the cardstock and paper on a blank card (5"x7").

For more inspiration from the team,  drop by the Stamplorations blog and do join the challenge here,  following the sketch, the theme or even both!

I take this opportunity to thank Shery for having me as GDT on the blog, it was such a pleasure and an honour to be part of the Stamplorations family and I wish her and the team continued success, they all deserve it!
I am entering the Craft Stamper TIMI challenge.

  4. Always love a rule-of-three - great design, and I love how the colour becomes warmer as your eye travels across the card. The words are wonderful too.
