Honoring Amelia

I wanted to share another of the cards I made for the February Artistic Outpost release, this one featuring the image of Amelia Earhart.   A rugged individualist, yes, but I wanted to keep the card more on the soft and feminine side, honoring her as a female aviation pioneer.  I started by stamping various images from the set in versamark onto vanilla CS and then clear embossed it.  From there, I sponged it using Broken China and Creamy Caramel.  I created a white rosette with a touch of Creamy Carmel sponging.  The image was stamped with Ranger Jet Black Archival ink and the rest of the stamping was done with Broken China DI, sponged over with Creamy Caramel and a hit of Vintage Photo DI.  I cut the AVIATION seal out of the post mark stamp from this set.  The words 'Dream', 'Explore' and 'Discover' are from the Huck Finn set.  I gave Amelia a little bling with the matching rhinestones and silver glass glitter on the clothes pin. The propeller was silver embossed on black CS and the sentiment banner was cut with the Tattered Banners die.  For dimension and texture, I added a piece of the white corrugated cardboard I sell in my Zibbet boutique.  And don't forget, there is a 10% discount coupon for March for you to try out my new Zibbet shop.  Just enter MARCH10 upon checkout.

Thank you so much for stopping by today.  Hope you are having a wonderful week!
