The Sky is the Limit Birthday - Try Stampin' on Tuesday or Not #330

A customer of mine has asked me to design a birthday card for her husband featuring the airplane from a retired SAB stamp set "The Sky is the Limit".  This is the 4th sample card I designed for her and I decided to use the sketch challenge with Try Stampin on Tuesday or Not


The optional theme was "portrait" and I suppose one could say this was a portrait of an airplane.


The base  card is Basic Black card stock, layered with Marina Mist and then a retired DSP that looks like mountain ranges from the sky.
In the upper center I die cut the complete circle of the sliding star framelits - so the airplane can make a complete circle in the sky. This was die cut through the DSP and the layering Marina Mist card stock.
In order for the airplane to spin in this track, it is important  to use a double layer of the shaker card tape.  So this was placed behind the center circle as well as the perimeter of the track.  Another tip -do not to place the tape too close to the track or else  plane will catch on the tape and not spin.

The plane was stamped separately on a piece of Very Vanilla, colored with a Marina Mist marker and cut out.  Two itty bitty flowers were punched in Vellum, adhered together alternating their petals and added to the propellers.

Two pennies were adhered together using two layers of dimensionals, and then added to the plane with another dimensional.

A couple of clouds were stamped, colored with a smoky slate marker and then cut out.  These were adhered to the center of the circle.

Wink of Stella (clear) applied to the plane wings and body.

At the bottom are 3 banners notched at one end - a basic black, one smoky slate and a marina mist banner upon which the sentiment is stamped.

Supplies Used:
Stamps:  Happy Happenings, The Sky is the Limit
Inks:  Black Memento, Markers (Marina Mist, Smoky Slate)
Papers:  Basic Black, Marina Mist, DSP (retired), Very Vanilla, Smoky Slate
Accessories:  Itty bitty flower punch (retired), Shooting Stars framelits, Wink of  Stella, double sided tape, dimensionals, 2 pennies

Now it's your turn to make something using this sketch by Donna.  When finished, upload it to the Try Stampin on Tuesday or not blog, or to their Facebook page.  Remember that you have 2 weeks to do so.
