Simply Saturday takes flight... which is kinda true as after next week, you will have a new theme for Saturdays. Don't worry, we will make sure we have Clean and Simple samples on a regular basis, if not weekly, but we have thought of something a little bit different, which we hope you like...
In the meantime, Viv and Gay have made some beautiful C&S sample.
I loved Viv sample as soon as I saw it. Plane and pink is not something you often associate but she succeeded beautifully, don't you think?
Unfortunately, we have sold out of the plane stamp she used, but I have given you an alternative below.
This is Viv's last post. I would like to thank her for the beautiful work she shared with us the last 4 weeks. Keep on checking her blog, she is a truly talented lady.
I first cut a white textured card base (13cm x 15cm) and used it tent fold. Then I cut another piece of white card (12cm x 13cm) and cut a border from the bottom.
I sponged the spare piece of card around the edges to give it more of an antique look.
I shaded the border piece in pink then in a brown shade to match the main card.
I cut a circle then sponged it in pink then in a brown shades around the edges to give it a distressed look.
I stamped the plane then coloured and shaded it.
I printed a sentiment and used a corner rounder on the edges then gave it a distressed look also.
I used small 3d pads to stick the spare piece of card to the base card to give it a bit more dimension.
I stuck the border down using some spray adhesive as it was less fiddly than using glue ( handy tip) .I stuck the circle to the spare card using 3d pads to raise it up a bit. I did the same with the plane image.
After adding the sentiment I added a few birds for extra interest, using a black permanent pen, that completed my card.
plane stamp alternative: Warehouse District
Promarkers Lipstick Red & Cocktail Pink ( used on plane image).
Sentiment computer generated
Birds hand- drawn Permanent pen black
My card is stamped on the coloured base, after I sponged Distress Inks in green and blue. The aperture I cut out after I used one of the tags for a template.
I thought the name fitted with the theme of up in the air!
I really dislike sending these lovely heavy tags to be recycled especially when they have heavy cord tying them together. I painted them with Fresco Fisnish paints and stamped with StazOn, good to go for a gift tag.
