Ooooo this reminds me of the song ‘Trains and Boats and Planes’ written by Burt Bacharach and sung by Dionne Warwick from wayyyyy back when I was just a little girl but in actual fact it’s the mid week Little Extra’ from the Daring Cardmakers
Cars, Boats, Trains & Planes
is the theme for our Little Extra challenge this week. A good chance to stock up on kids cards and make a few of those poor, unloved "cards for men", maybe? How about "congratulations on Passing your Driving test" or "Got your Wings" for newly qualified pilots? - ok so we may be reaching a bit far with that one, but you never know! Basically, what we'd like you to do is put some transport on your cards this week, how you do it is up to you!
Here’s what I came up with:-
The little sailing boat is an unmounted stamp that I brought on ebay, stamped in Black pigment ink, embossed with clear embossing powder and then painted with watercolour pencils.
I layered the image on Green and White card stock and attached it to the card with eyelets. I've also cut some circles from the same Green card and some patterned paper (sorry, don’t know what that was) which were attached to the card with big white Papermania brads.
The card has been finished off with my usual inking around the edges and you’ll also notice that I’ve attempted to do a bit of doodling but I’m not sure it worked to be honest.
