My First Challenge Entry!


I noticed that there were a number of challenges to do with boys this week so I decided I would blog the card that I made for Father's Day, as my first ever Challenge entry! (Trumpet fanfare please!)
I used the LOTV stamps, Aeroplane, & Grunge Postcard (which I then stamped on top of with a Hero Arts text stamp). I also used the Pink Gem Someone Special Ticket stamp. I coloured in copics and used card candy, distress inks, a variety of papers including Papermania kraft paper, Co'oredinations and some scrabble like tiles. The patterned papers were from my stash.
My lovely Dad was very pleased with the card especially as he has a "Spitfire Thing", going on :)
I am currently looking forward to the new LOTV Christmas stamps (due out on the 25th) and also the launch of the Crafter's Companion Spectrum Noir Pens! I think they might work perfectly in my Copic Air Brush System!
