The Sky is the Limit!

Hello on this very sunny Sunday! Happy Valentine's Day to you all.

I have two cards to share today featuring one of the stamp sets from Sale-a-bration that are Limited Edition. This set was really popular, there's something about that plane that sold me on it.

The plane image is great for making masculine cards, which are more difficult for some reason?! Not sure why they are, they just are. I wanted to make some fun water coloured backgrounds for each of my cards, but with different colours and completely different looks. 

For my first card, I used a piece of the {Going Places Designer Series Paper} - I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this paper! The fun patterns and the colours are so ME. I chose one of the aerial views of an urban street map. I used several shades of blue to create the sky for my plane to fly around on.

It looked good with just the simple water coloured background, but I wanted MORE... so I flicked some water and used my {Heat Tool} to dry the water quicker - and ta-da, a super neat-o background!!  

Next, I went for a yellow-orange sky this time. This card was no different than the first one - I simply added the colour and wasn't quite happy with it so... 

... I ran my {Aquapainter} across the top and let it drip. This removed some of the colour and made it look white - it looks like lightening, love it. 

I used the same paper stack, {Going Places}. I went for a similar paper design, but the opposite colouring with light background and dark for the urban grid lines. 

I added a few clouds with {Vellum Card stock} and the {Tree Builder Punch}. Super simple and a nice added touch. I stamped the plane's propeller onto vellum and cut it out, added it on top of the original stamped plane with a small Crushed Curry Enamel Dot from {It's my party enamel dots}.

This is an awesome stamp set, I highly recommend it... if you have the opportunity to earn a copy for yourself on or before February 15, 2016. Well, I hope you like my cards and the sky really is the limit when you are creating. As long as you are having fun, go for it! 

Thanks for stopping by, happy stamping!
