Fly Away Daydreamer

Silly title I know but that's the names of the stamp sets I used!

My Fly Away card is for SC368 for the sketch, which I virtually stuck to. I did move the sentiment so I could put my airplane there instead. this is also for Play Date Café's Challenge #115 to use slate, moss, bark and burlap. I have no idea at all what colour burlap really is supposed to be, but I translated these colours into the SU colours of Sahara Sand, Mellow Moss, Soft Suede and Crumb Cake - perfect for a man's card, so I got my dad's birthday card made early! Here's the colour story from Play Date Café. I had this dying urge to use my new Argyle set from PTI and love the look you get (still reminds me of socks though!)


And here's my card for it.

My Daydreamer card is for Make It Monday Challenge #49 to use the ghost masking technique, ColourQ's Challenge #120 to use Bravo Burgundy, Rich Razzleberry, Wisteria Wonder, Island Indigo and white and for Ways To Use It Challenge #358 to use sewing either real or faux. I pulled out my huge stash of embroidery threads and found one that virtually matching the Wisteria Wonder and hand stitched round the edge. I kept quite close to Betsy's card for this one as it was a technique I have never used before and I love how it really looks like the sentiment panel is over the top of the flowers rather than being all part of the same piece of card. Anyway, this is the colour story for ColourQ's challenge.


And here's my card for it.

And that's all for this post folks! Thanks for stopping by.
