Up, Up and Away ...

Great start to the week - I've managed to put together a card based on one of the tutorials from Day 7 of the online course One Layer Cards 3!  I'm absolutely delighted not something I say very often about my cards but I am really pleased with this one.

It uses dies, vellum and markers.  A relatively simple technique with great results - the biggest problem was choosing which colours to use!  The vellum I used is quite heavy I would like to try the technique with lighter vellum as I think the colours might pop more.

Here is my completed card:

The colour is a bit streaky but I think it works for this image.
I used the following:

Card from my stash
Spectrum Noir markers - DR1, BT5, LV2 and TB5
Clearly Besotted 'Make a Wish' stamps and dies

I think I will enter the card in the Clearly Besotted Challenge where the theme is Flight!
