Retro/Vintage Bi-Planes

Hiya... Just wanted to share a quick card. This card stretched me as it's not the normal choice of background paper I would use for a start. lol

Anyway I took the Bi-Plane  from the Technique Tuesday All Aboard set (love this stamp set) and stamped the inage into three pre cut movers and shapers Tim Hioltz labels with Archival jet black and then embossed with ranger superfine. I then coloured the images with Distress Markers and edges with the the same colour of distress ink.

The paper for my background is not my usual choice of paper lol. So I stretched myself by using it as the backdrop for this card. The three planes have foam tape behind them for some added dimension. Here is an image with out the glare from the embossing. . .

A really simple card but I love the way it turned out! :) I think a very versatile male of any ages card as well :) Ok I really must get back to work lol cooking dinner for tonight (hedgehogs lol Yummy) in the slow cooker, followed by washing and study. Would much rather be creating!
Happy Scrappin'
