Papertrey March Blog Hop Challenge - Red Baron

Hi everyone! Here's my take on this month's Papertrey, Ink blog hop.

It's high gloss or in my case heat embossing to get that shine!

I got out the Fly Away stamp set and inked up the plane with wild cherry colorbox ink from My Favorite Things. Added some clear embossing powder and heat set it.

I stamped the sentiment and banner then colored in the outline using a red memento marker.

So, in order to get the shine on the clouds I first die cut a few out using the cloud dies from PTI. Using a Versamark ink pad I covered the entire die cut with ink and then using UTEE heat embossed them - three times!  I popped them up on the card base with foam tape to give them some dimension.

To create the sky, I used my Picasso stencil, summer sky ink from Memento and a sponge dauber. I used one of the long rectangle nesties to cut and emboss and Bazzill smoothies cardstock in navy and pure poppy cardstock used to layer the scene.

This was such a fun card to create - thanks for stopping by!

Cute card with your glossy clouds. I just purchased this Fly Away set last month - don't know how I missed it all this time - it's a great basic set. And I totally forget about using by big bottle of UTEE - thank you for the inspiration!
