Come Fly With Me

I made this card awhile ago and am finally getting around to blogging it.  :-)

I stamped "Come Fly With Me" onto 140 lb. cold press water colour paper by Canson.  I water coloured the image using artist quality paints.  I tried to give the background a feeling of distant trees and such and so that's why I left out a lot of details.  I wanted to convey the feeling that this guy is floating way up in the atmosphere!

If you want any more card details, you can find them here in the August issue of the Whimsy Inspirations Magazine.
Here is your close-up and sideview:

Please check out my challenge blog Sundays With Crissy if you haven't already, and see what my DT gals are up to!  The challenge starts on the first of every month and runs til the end of the month, so there's lots of time to join in and play!  And I always award five free digi's from my collections to one random participant at month's end.  This month's theme is Thanks/Thanksgiving, so you can either make a thank you card or a card to celebrate Thanksgiving Weekend.  The choice is up to you :-)

Thanks for coming by to see what I've been up to!
God bless!
