Joy Flight

Hello Fellow Crafters
Today I thought I'd make a man's card and create a scene.

How I made the card:
The blue background was achieved by sponging with a cloud stencil.
Grassy area I used green cardstock sponged a little and for the hills:
Memory Box - Golf club Landscape (I cut the flag off and added a couple more trees).
Die Namics - Rolling Hills
Memory Box - Puffy Clouds (sponged)
Frantic Stamper - Bi Plane
Memory Box - Flying Birds (BB used to have them)
One bird is from Impression Obsession - Sea Birds
Happy Birthday from PoppyCraft dies - Happy Birthday Balloon
I drew and coloured and cut the rocks out and pasted them.
Enjoy your week and happy crafting.
Hugs Carol

Say Hello

Hello, as the card says.
I'd never done resist before and tried a few methods but this is the best one for me.
The flower is from Stampin Up and I stamped it on with water based paint.
Make sure it dries well.
I dabbed the inks on a plastic sleeve and sprayed with water and placed the cardsock over it and dabbed the flowers clean.

Then I added 
A ribbon laced through the Marianne Ribbon Border 1 Weaving
and a matching bow.
and Rhinestones
