I’ve been a bit under the weather recently, but I was determined to get my card done for the new challenge at The Male Room. Our theme is flight, and as I thought about what I could make quickly and without overtiring myself I realised I could put a card together with scraps and snippets that I had left over from previous projects. In the end this probably took me less than ten minutes to assemble as pretty much all the pieces were ready for me!
For my background I found a panel that I had created around Halloween last year. I made several panels with the acrylic block stamping technique and shared a video of the process on my YouTube channel. This one didn’t get used then, and I thought it would work well for the design I had in mind here.
I knew I wanted to use the aeroplane die that came in the Love From Lizi April card kit. When I want to pull it out I realised that I already had one die cut out! I’d die cut it from silver mirror card and, as I do with unused die cuts, placed it back in with the dies for storage.
Before adhering the plane into place I put the background panel into my MISTI and stamped a sentiment from the Love From Lizi Bon Voyage stamp set with Versafine Onyx Black ink. I adhered the aeroplane with liquid glue, then used double-sided tape to attach the background panel to my blue card base.
I really like the end the result of this card, and it was a relief to be able to get something together so quickly when I wasn’t feeling well! Using the background also reminded me how much fun I had with the acrylic block stamping technique. I may end up revisiting the technique sometime soon!
