Wings


Not my favourite week at Less is More challenge, its One Layer week and the theme is Wings. It was while I was reading what types of wings on the challenge I had one of those lightbulb moments really wished I found the switch to turn it off. 
The first attempt landed in the bin, but the end result was pretty much how I thought it would be although the blue is a bit darker mainly because I'm a bit heavy handed.
So I first made the masks, the clouds were actually cut with a die so no stamping was required for them. Once the image was stamped and masked, along with the clouds and I had to masked the strip I wanted then it was a case of blending inks over the masks. 
I coloured snoopy in with Polychromos pencils, I probably went over twice with them so that I didn't need to use solvent and paper stumps cos I was sure that would have messed it up.
So I was pleased how it turned out but realised it needed a sentiment that was a scary moment, one slip of the hand and the card would have been messed up but for once it stamped beautifully and job was done.

Love that Snoopy stamp - reminds me of my childhood reading the cartoon strip on the back of the newspaper. Do they still do that ? A great card and well done for stamping the sentiment direct to card. Something I always mess up.

It appears that I am approximately 15 cards behind! Streuth!!! So I can't catch up and I'm just going to pick three of my faves to comment on. This is the first! It's a brilliant one layer card. It's beautifully coloured and I LOVE the image - very clever "wings" choice, Debby! Hugs, Lesley
