Up, Up and away






Ok, so I have used alot of parachutes in my cards of late but I just love the look of them and think I might be using them as an embellishment over and over again.

For this card I created a scene that had a happy and carefree feel. I have got a variety of cloud papers and I have to say that the one that I haved used on this card is my favourite, I love the deep blue. I mounted the parachutes on mounting foam to give them some dimension. The title was printed on self adhesive transparency and stuck directly onto the card, the next time I will try and print the title directly onto the card. I love the look of a scene on a card, to me it tells a story.

The challenges I have included-
2 Sketches 4 U-Sketch
Ribbons and bows-Whoopsi Daisy Challenge
Patterned papers-Some Odd Girl
Acrylic, transparencies and vellum-Practical Scrappers
