So as promised I am back with yet another challenge. This card is for CASology & the cue word is Travel.

My original plan was to water color the main panel, but fate stepped in and my mailman rang my door bell with a package of ink blending tools that I just bought, so I decided to go ahead and give that a shot! This was my first time using distress inks with a blending tool and I loved it.



And here is some detail…




I stamped the tiny little image of the paper airplane directly onto the background and stamped it again on some plain white card stock. Did a little fussy cutting around the paper airplane and stuck it on with some Kooltac clear adhesive directly over the original stamped image. I then added the sentiment ‘Just a Note’ from Hero Arts Everyday sayings stamp set.

And of course I couldn’t leave it alone there so I added the tiny little scalloped edge with some light blue scrap card stock I had sitting on my work surface and rounded the top two corners. I have to say, I really like this card & it was fun to make! :]
