Sky is the limit - Sale-A-Bration

SU, Occasions Catalogue, Happy Home, combining several stamps
This card combines two stamp sets to create a little scene.  I think the aircraft was being so noisy that everyone left the park bench!

The lower half of the card uses two stamps from the Happy Home set which is in the new Occasions Catalogue.  I omitted the clouds on the stamp with the park bench because they didn't fit with the rest of this particular scene.

The top half used stamps from the Sale-A-Bration set called Sky Is The Limit.  There are 8 stamps in the set including some great greetings and clouds.
SU, Sale-A-Bration, Sky is the limit stamp set
This stamp set is only available for a limited time (until 15th February or stock runs out) and can not be purchased.  It can only be obtained FREE with an order of $90 of products.

Colouring process I used:
Coloured the aircraft using the Real Red marker from Many Marvellous Markers
Applied Versamark to the aircraft and smoke trail heart using a Versamarker.
Tipped clear embossing powder over the top half of the card and tapped off excess
Used a small brush to remove embossing powder from areas I didn't want it (mainly around the edge of the plane)
Used the heat tool on the embossing
Sponged light green over the tree top
Sponged light green for the grass (darker at the bottom of the card)
Sponged Soft Sky all over the top of the card - working from the top down and edge in
Sponged Marina Mist to the top of the card and left side - blending it out
Sponged a darker green to the tree - mainly in the middle and towards the bottom
Sponged a darker green to bottom edge of the card
Used a matching darker green market to fill in the leaf shapes in the tree to give a bit more depth
Used a tissue to wipe any ink off the embossed areas
Coloured the park bench with a Crumb Cake marker and the flowers with Real Red.

If you like the Sky Is The Limit stamp set (and it IS gorgeous and very versatile) - remember that it will only be available for a short while so get your qualifying order in as soon as you can!
