Flying By To Say Hi

I've been wanting to ink up some of my new stamps and today had a little time to get inky - bliss! I was inspired by Cath's Tuesday Trigger over at Moxie Fab World - love the mix of colours and also the pattern. So I partially used the cutting pattern and added a lot more colours than I usually do to my cards.



To start with I stamped the Map of America and used circle Nestabilities to cut the map into rings.

IMGP0931
Stamps - Hero Arts (Map of America, BAM! and Ghostly Greetings)

Then I coloured the map with ProMarkers and adhered it to a panel of black card. The embossed sentiment is from a Halloween set but I thought it would work here. I decided to leave the rocket uncoloured and just popped it on foam pads. To finish I added a trail of gems from the rocket and a heart gem to the centre of the map.

I'm also submitting this card into the current Hero Arts Challenge.

Hi Heather,

My 5 year old also agrees with me on this card.

Lots of colors and it is fun, he says.
And he wants one like this for him
