Are we there yet? ....

.... Hi - back again!!  I'm sure that if you've got children that phrase "are we there yet?" will be so familiar!!  This card has been made with a couple of challenges in mind:



Stamps: Sweet Stamp Shop - Across the Miles; Stampers Anonymous Tim Holtz - Travel Blueprints
Inks: Stampin' Up! - Night of Navy, Poppy Parade, Crumb Cake; Versamark
Accessories: SU Card - Crumb Cake, Night of Navy; SU Markers - Real Red; Promarkers - Poppy, Baby Pink, Soft Green; White Lustre Card; Clear embossing powder


I got these fabulous blueprint style stamps a few weeks ago and this is the first time they've seen ink!!  I really like the aeroplane blueprint image and thought it would be perfect for the travel theme at CASology.  I started by cutting a mat layer in Crumb Cake and stamping the image directly on the card.  Then I stamped the image again on Night of Navy card - I used Versamark, embossed with clear powder and cut out the plane.  I stamped the image again onto white card and cut out the stamp part of the image.  I used Promarkers to colour the number and stripes.  I finished the front with that phrase we all know so well and a compass, spotlighting the N for north.

For the inside I made a mat layer in Crumb Cake and a white layer onto which I stamped a map of the United States and used the little arrow and "I'm here" phrase to mark where I live in Michigan.


That's all for today.  We have a busy afternoon lined up - Jonathan is out at at shoot in Pontiac, and Kathryn and I are joining a photography group to do a walk around Historic Northville.  I'll take lots of  photos and share them during the week.  See you tomorrow.
