The Challenge over at CD Sunday this week is on Transport - which was definitely going to give me a challenge, as I would have to go through quite a few CD's to find the transport images. Then I remembered that I had an MCS CD that had a motor-bike & an aeroplane on it. I eventually found them on Klever Konstructions - Once in a Lifetime Vol 1. Here is the card, it is a 3-d shelf card - I decided to try the aeroplane design. Details under the photos;
This is the card from the front view, you can see by the top of the back image that my card was a bit too thin. I am limited to the thickness of card I can put in my printer as it is a front loader so the card has to turn inside. I have cut out a second aeroplane a placed it over the original image with sticky pads. The hardest part was cutting out the slots the the various pieces fitted into & because it was thinner card - making it all stand up properly.
This is the card taken slightly from the side & above to show the layers on the shelf. I took the spare seagull & tested it for using the "spray & shine". It looked good whilst wet, but the card absorbed it, so when it was dry it didn't look any different to before being sprayed. I was a bit disappointed as I thought it would give the aeroplane a lift. Never mind. I am rather pleased with it even so.
I think I will be tempted to try another one as there are some beautiful designs on the two CD's. What I might have to do is print on the same card that I used & then adhere the pieces to a second sheet to make it sturdier. Hmm! perhaps I do need to hang on to my Xyron after all.
Well that's me for today. I have promised myself some stamping time today - & I really should go for a walk, as I am trying to build myself up again with a half-hour walk each day. But it is very windy today which is a bit off-putting. Anyway I am off for a cup of tea whilst I decided what to do - then upstairs to the craft room. I can always go for the walk after some stamping, can't I?
Thank you for dropping by - more soon.
