To Start the year ...

Hi Everybody,

The first card of the New Year is created with Tonic Studios Toy Plane and this is perfect for the small boys who have a Birthday coming up.

It is part of the Rococo ranges and these are a delight to design with.

Over the coming weeks I will show you some of the others that are in this collection and how they can be adapted to suit any age group or occasion

For this one I cut the plane out twice once in Blue the other in Yellow and paper pieced them together to make the two tone plane. I removed the top section of it and added in Glossy Accents to represent the cockpit.

The propellers are cut from Silver card and added in to the space and the sentiment is stamped and embossed onto the card.

The clouds are created by hand with Distress Inks and the little flying birds are simply drawn in at the end

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  14. Hi Christina,
    What a lovely, fun card. I have to say that I'm in awe of the wonderful clouds you've created. I'm not too good at blending...I was even temptress to buy that battery operated blending tool they had on Hochander the other day, I came to my senses just in time though lol.

  15. Good Afternoon Christina - what a great card for a boy! That would be a perfect boy card & is a very good looking card!

  16. You're always so creative with your backgrounds, Christina. The plane itself would be cute, but the fact that you have it flying above the clouds and among the birds brings it to life. Love it!

  17. Wonderful card for all the small boys in our lives. My grandson would love this.
    Your clouds are so lifelike Christina.

  18. Happy New Year Christina to you and the Family. What a cute idea for a card to send to someone far away. Little ones would just love this little aeroplane too.
