The Male Room Remembers
This fortnights challenge at The Male Room is Remembrance. We would like to see your creations following this theme whether they are cards or scrapbook pages, take a look at the DT inspiration and come and join in.
I have had this set of stamps by Hobby Art for over a year now and I felt they would be perfect for this theme. My family has always been very interested in WWII aircraft, some of them being involved in manufacture during the war. These three aircraft are a Lancaster Bomber, a Hurricane and a Spitfire, which make up the Battle Of Britain Memorial Flight.
The fields were stamped in Memento Ink Gray Flannel and then coloured in with Graph It markers (very similar to Promarkers). The sky has been washed with a weak solution of Distress Ink Stormy Sky before stamping the aircraft in Archival Ink Jet Black. The image is mounted on blue card before being stuck on to a card blank covered with sky scrapbook paper. The quote is stamped in Archival Ink Cobalt blue.
