Vulcan bomber

CR00411 square

I grew up not far from Waddington in Lincolnshire so we regularly had the distinctively shaped Vulcan bombers flying overhead. Our neighbour is a big fan of Vulcans so I was happy to create this card for her birthday.

I do love working with stamps and digi stamps, but there is something rather satisfying about creating my own images. I usually work from a source image and my light box because my drawing skills aren’t up to starting with a completely blank page.

For a change I actually thought to take some in progress photos of my Copic colouring.

Final details and fussy cut

The background was die-cut from the panel I created yesterday.  I heat embossed the sentiment on a strip of vellum and attached it by hiding dots of glue under the sequins. I used some fun foam to give the Vulcan a little dimension.

A simple card design that could easily be made for a man just by swapping the sequins for enamel dots.
