Happy Spring, with Penny Black

Mom sent me a bunch of Prima wood embellishments, including this cute little plane, as well as this adorable stamp by Mo Manning (from Penny Black), and putting them together on a card seemed like a great idea. Come on, who could resist this sweet face‽

The image is stamped on Hammermill with Tuxedo Black ink (Memento) and colored with Copics. I added the tiny flowers with a stamp from a Candi Stamps set (Craftwork Cards) and orange pigment ink (VersaColor). I blinged him up by using a silver pen on his front pin, a clear glaze pen on the rubber parts of his shoes, and Glossy Accents on his goggles.

The light blue background paper (Jo-Ann's) was embossed half-way with clouds in my BigShot with an embossing folder (Darice), and then I inked the clouds with SU! Whisper White Craft ink using a finger dauber. 

I stamped the dandelions in a row, plus a few little flyaways (both stamps from Clear Art Stamps' Wildflowers set), and colored them with shiny, yellow and green glaze pens (Sakura). The stems are filled with a green glitter pen (Elmer's).  

I added just a touch of color with a ribbon from my stash. The background piece is edged with deckle scissors, and I backed the whole thing with a glittered, flower-themed DP (Colorbök).

The wood plane was colored just a bit with gray Copics, and then heat-embossed in Translucent Yellow (Stampendous).

I heat-embossed the sentiment (from a Penny Black set) in white after lining up the little plane.
