Project 346: Masking, blending, embossing - oh my!

I was really intrigued by the sketch at CAS(E) This Sketch this week - it leaves a lot up to interpretation. I hope the team like my idea here.

I used a new stamp set that Claire gave me featuring different travel image - this bi-plane looked cute on an angle and I thought it was a fun way to represent the curly swoosh of the sketch.

I heat embossed the planes in black and then heat embossed a Sizzix greeting in bright yellow. I masked off a strip down the side and left an inch strip for blending. I used Salty Ocean distress ink to pop against the yellow. A few little enamel dots and that was it.

I really liked the techniques used and was pleased how it all came together.


  1. What a great card! Can you tell me what specific stamp(s) you used? My family is all about aviation so I'm always looking for aircraft. Thank you!

  2. Way to rock those new stamps man..I am not brave enough to tackle this sketch, I think your interpretation is really cool. That hello stamp is making me swoon a bit Cx
