Take flight card

Good morning everyone, hope you all have a fabulous weekend.
Today I have my last card to show you  as Guest Designer
 for 'The Craft Barn' for this month. This time the theme is
 'take flight' so I have used an old airplane stamp coloured red
 ( so many of the old ones seemed to be red when I looked
 at them.) This stamp is no longer available btw. ( cArt Us one)
 so I am giving an alternative below.The  red is more pink  looking
 here for some reason ! There is pink in parts from  the sun  but
 as I look at it irl. it IS red at the edges.....honestly! Anyway come
 and have a closer look........................
 
 
Card Recipe
I first made a  white texturized card base ( 13cm x 15cm) & used
 it tent fold. Then I cut another piece of white card (12cm x 13cm)
 and cut a border from the bottom.I sponged the spare piece of 
card  around the edges to give it  more  of an antique look.I shaded
 the border piece in pink then  in a brown shade to match the main
 card. I cut a circle then sponged it  in pink then in a brown shades
 around the edges to give it a distressed look. I stamped the plane then
 coloured it , shading it as I did so. I printed a sentiment and used a
corner rounder on the edges then gave it a  distressed  look also. I 
used small 3d pads to stick the spare piece of card to the base
 card to give it a bit more dimension. I stuck the border down using
 some spray adhesive as it was less fiddly than using glue ( handy tip) .
 I stuck the circle to the spare card using  3d pads to raise it up a bit.
 I did the same with  the plane image. After adding the sentiment I
 added a few birds for extra interest, using a black permanent
 pen, that completed my card.
