For this fun tag I was inspired by Tim Holtz's Sizzix dies for this cute little airplane and clouds. I found these dies on sale, but after I got them home I realized I did not have the right Sizzix setup to use them. I kinda improvised and found a way to use them, anyhow. It takes a little more time, but they still cut pretty well. If you take a minute to watch the video I included I'll be able to explain there better how I managed to cut these!
Anyway, moving on...
I created the sunset background by using a number of Distress Inks. I used Wild Honey, Carved Pumpkin, Barn Door, Aged Mahogany, Dusty Concord, and some Black Soot. More colors in one background than I usually use! I just kept blending these colors together to get that gradient sunset background.
After the background was finished, I used a white gel pen to add little stars. Then, I colored the three clouds a little bit to kind of blend in with the background. I used Black Soot to color the airplane. I wanted it to look like a silhouette in the sky. I adhered the clouds down using my ATG and then used some foam adhesive for one of the clouds as well as the airplane.
The "Live" on the bottom is a puffy sticker from Fancy Pants Designs Attwell collection. For the last finishing touches I added some black sequins and then brushed on some Wink of Stella over the airplane.
I just love how bright the color are and yet it still has that serene sunset feel to it. Makes you want to fly off into the sunset, doesn't it?
