Take Off, eh!

I've had this Take Off set from The Cat's Pajamas since it was released and it had yet to see any ink, so I pulled it out and played along with the TCP Tuesday sketch challenge, TCPTUES180.

The sketch was a little intimidating with that big 'ole star, but I just treated it like any other layer and I love how my card came together. This little guy is SO cute!!! I love that his ears are practically bigger than the plane!

I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black onto choice buttercream and coloured it with copics. I paper pieced the airplane with two patterns from the Blink of an Eye collection by My Mind's Eye. I added a couple coats of clear glaze pen to his goggles and a rhinestone swirl coming out of the exhaust pipe. I cut out the row of clouds using the cloud border die then stitched them in place. I gotta say, my little Janome Sew Mini did not like going through that many layers of card stock! LOL!

Thanks for stopping by!
