Flying High Birthday Wishes

I guess about a month ago, I was accepted into a second round for acceptance into the Art Impressions Design Team. They sent me some sets to work with and asked me to return six cards for judging. Well, guess what? They accepted me! I'm so honored and excited to be part of one of my all time favorite stamp companies and a member of their extremely talented Design Team.

I'll be able to bring you many Ai projects over the coming year, including first peaks at their new releases as they come out. I'm really looking forward to sharing their wonderful product lines with you.

I haven't received my Design Team box just yet so for my first post, I'm bringing out an older but oh-so-fun His & Hers Flying High set which is perfect for a landscape slimline card. This set has all the pieces to make a great little scene including a dog and a parachute. So cute! 

For this card, I chose the plane, Birthday banner and one of the sentiments. The sky background was created with a simple water color technique and the images were Copic colored. 

I mounted the plane on an Action Wobble. It makes the plane pop and adds some action to the scene. You can see how it moves below.

I have a video for you on the background and card construction. If you want to try watercolor, the sky is made with a very simple technique that's perfect for beginners. Click on the video thumbnail to watch.
