Oh, the airplanes... We should have guessed buying a home a few miles away from Boeing. When we were buying the house we never heard a one, now I can just about go outside and wave to the pilot as he roars by. Couple of times I thought I might have to hit the deck they sounded so low! Anyway, enough of my rant, these smaller planes don't seem to bother us at all when they go by so I thought I'd honor them with a card today :)Supplies used are Stampin' Up! for the color and sketch challenges this week.
Stampin' Up!: Pool Party and Always Artichoke card stocks, Clouds embossing folder, Sky Is The Limit stamp set, Cherry Cobbler ink and black marker for plane, vellum circle for propeller with a silver mini brad, popped this up with adhesive dot. The felt ribbon "road" is SU's retired Alpine Ribbon Originals.

Still practicing with my new watercolors. I did a wash for the sky and when it was dry I stenciled a basic tree form and then filled in some branch detail with the sepia Pitt marker. Dabbed some artichoke ink onto tree limbs and then did another wash in two shades of green and a bit of ocher. Sentiment is SU God's Beauty, watercolor paper and Cherry Cobbler card stock.
