INKspired Sketch Blog Hop 33 -

Welcome to out INKspired sketch blog hop -
This month has certainly flown by 
You may have hopped across from Narelle and I am wondering what gorgeous surprise she has in store for us this hop. She had a birthday yesterday so don't forget to wish her a "Happy Birthday"!
Now pull up a chair , grab a coffee/tea and hop thru all the blogs...
You will enjoy them!

Here is the sketch that Teneale has given us

I needed a male birthday card for my brother-in-law so I chose to use the Sale-A-Bration (SAB) set - Sky is the Limit, for the plane and the words Happy Birthday.
I started with a standard card base of Early Espresso and found some lovely stripes in the gorgeous English Garden DSP and used Soft Suede behind the stripes and behind the rectangle.
The words (....On Your Special Day) are from the SAB set - Botanicals for You and stamped in the Basic Black Archival ink - so crisp!
I didn't cut the corners of my whisper white rectangle - just didn't suit my plane....
Needed colour on the card first..
I sponged Pear Pizzazz down the bottom to get the green effect and stamped the grass from the Sheltering Tree in Old Olive stamped off slightly.
I then sponged the top sky with Pool Party and Lost Lagoon and then stamped the cloud from Sky is the Limit in Lost Lagoon 
that I stamped off once to soften it.

The plane I stamped in Old Espresso and used my Blender pen
to pull the colour into the white areas.

Lastly here is the inside of my card.

Thank you for stopping by to look at our hop.

Now it is onto the talented Barbara and  I can't wait to see

what she has in store for us

Below is what I have used to make my card.
