Up, Up and Away

My friend's grandson is turning one very soon. I made this card for her to give to him. No doubt he won't ever remember but at least it will probably be in his scrapbook, well maybe. lol
He and his parents are visiting from the UK so the plane being a boy thing as well gave me the opportunity to use this cute Kaisercraft clear stamp set. It consists of the plane, the swirl and the words 'Little Man'. The papers are retired SU Sweet Slumber which are textured and with that cloud pattern were absolutely perfect for this card.
The sketch is from the Create 4Fun Challenge this week and I'm only just in time to enter it too, I think.
I pretty much followed the sketch to the letter and I used on of the design team's examples as a guide too.
The ink I used is Versafine, I tried to use the matching SU ink but dye inks a lot of the time won't work on the acrylic stamps, it beads and won't stamp a solid stamp properly. Versafine is fantastic for solid stamps. I love it.
OK, think that's it. Thanks so much for visiting and enjoy your day everyone.
