No Limits Birthday

Hello again!  Tonight I'm sharing my weekly sample for this week's Color Challenge at Splitcoaststampers.  This week Maura has chosen the colors Real Red, Wild Wasabi, Marina Mist and Pacific Point, with "dessert" of floss, twine or ribbon. I've used the great sketch from Just Add Ink as inspiration for my card design.

The image that came to mind was forest and sky, but how to use the red?  Aha!  I pulled out the airplane from Sky is the Limit and decided to have a red plane through the sky over a forest.

I started with a panel of Whisper White card and a scrap punched out with the 1 5/8" Scallop Circle punch, then lightly sponged Pacific Point across the sky, creating fluffy clouds.  I then stamped the trees from Wonderland across the bottom in Wild Wasabi.  The plane was stamped in Archival Basic Gray, colored with a Blender Pen in Real Red ink and cut out with my Paper Snips.  The "propeller" was punched from Vellum Card Stock with a 3/4" circle punch and attached to the plane with a silver brad.

The sentiment is also from the Sky is the Limit stamp set, and was cut and layered with two sizes of Tags and Labels framelits.  I even added "dessert", with the Pacific Point Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon and Whisper White Baker's Twine.

That's it for tonight.  Please be sure to use the links above to check out all the wonderful inspiration.  Thanks for the visit and I'd love to hear from you if have a moment to leave a comment!

I love the way you've made the plane just come flying out of the page! Great forest for it to fly over too. Wonderful card!

This is fantastic Stef! I love your vibrant forest and the soft clouds and touch of vellum for the plane's propeller! So clever and a wonderful take on the sketch! Thanks for sharing with us at Just Add Ink this week :-)

Beautiful! I don't have the Wonderland stamp, but I wonder if I could use the tree from Lovely as a Tree? I have tried the propeller with a 1" punch but it was too big and tried with 1/2" which was too small. 3/4" is just right so now I need to buy a new punch :-) Thanks for sharing your talent.
