Come fly away with me


Another glorious day, it looks like it's going to be even warmer than it was yesterday! After enjoying a wonderful breakfast of asparagus from our own garden with poached eggs, a bit of ham and Hollandaise sauce (I admit, I cheated and used a store-bought mix, but it counts as home made if you squeeze in the lemon juice all by yourself, right?) I am planning to dig a bit more in the garden. And then my wonderful man is making me BBQ. Could a Sunday get any better? Yes it can, I had a mother's day photo shoot with my gorgeous boy (you can see pictures here) and I had time for a bit of crafting as well! And it's barely midday yet!

Today's card was inspired by the inspiration image over at Inspired by All the Little Things, which was a perfect image to go with the new STAMPlorations Born to Roam stamp set that popped through my mailbox a few days ago. The cupcake wrappers inspired me to use the Stampin' Up World map and the compass from The Open Sea. I was also inspired by the cue card over at CASology which is Move, and the sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches (this is my second entry in this week's challenge). I'm also linking up with Crafty Calendar Challenges where the theme is Things With Wings.

I started by stamping the plane in Versafine ink, and then masked it before stamping the World map through a mask. The I watercoloured the image using Tim Holtz Distress inks and last I stamped the compass from The Open Sea and one of the sentiments from Born to Roam in Versafine. I really like the way the card turned out, it reminds me of the Indiana Jones movies, where they show the little airplane moving over a map whenever Indy would fly anywhere.

Stamps: STAMPlorations Born to Roam, Stampin' Up World Map, The Open Sea
Ink: Versafine Onyx Black, Tim Holtz Distress Inks Broken China, Festive Berries, Fossilized Amber, Shabby Shutters and Vintage Photo
