Patch Flyilng

It's time for some inspiration over at the Crafty Pad today and Estelle and myself are showcasing a couple of Crafty Pad images.

I chose to make a card for a child, something I don't do nearly often enough, it was really fun to make and I am going to make sure I do it more often.

I chose the fab Crafty Pad image 'Patch Flying, I printed him out twice and cut out one image to decoupage him, I always like to have some dimension on my cards.  I inked the sky using a mask for the clouds and coloured him with a combination of ProMarkers and FlexMarkers.  Full details of everything I have used are listed below.

This is the inside of my card that I have decorated to match the front.

You can just about see the Crystal Lacquer that I have added to the little screen on the aeroplane in this photograph.
