It was my husband's grandfather's birthday today and I made him a card. I find making cards for guys really difficult and I have no 'guy' stamps! So I enlisted my husband's help for this card. He draws very well and I asked him to draw me a Lancaster plane from WWII. His grandfather was a mechanic during the war and this was one of the planes he worked on and he loves airplane models so I thought this card would be appropriate! It was drawn on watercolour paper and then I painted it using Distress Inks - painting the camouflage was interesting and I hope it looks realistic enough! The papers are all from K & Co and I'm not sure if you can tell but the bottom paper is a map of the world which I thought worked well!
Here's a close-up of the actual plane. Then again that might be a bad idea - all the imperfections are a lot more noticeable :)
I'm also going to submit this to the Friday Sketcher's Challenge - it's been a while since I've done a challenge!
Thanks for visiting and I do love hearing what you think about the cards!
And...before I go...here's a bookmark that went with the card. It's supposed to be a propeller for a plane - guys seem to get but I'm not sure about it!
