Final Post of the Blitz

IMG_0913

I really hope that you have enjoyed the blitz this week.  Don't forget that you have until Sunday, April 19th at 11:59 EST to leave comments to our posts of the week for the chance to win prizes.  We will announce the winners on the Outside the Box blog next Monday.  Good luck! 

For my card today, I used the new Postage Set die (99131) along with the coordinating Postage Set stencil (88606).  When you cut out the postage, you get rectangles that look like this:

The stencil coordinates with the die so that you can use it as a mask to create your postage.  In this picture, I didn't line things up perfectly, but I wanted to show you the dies with the stencil:

I sponged the rectangle I selected with Salty Ocean Distress Ink:

Next, I layered a second stencil on top (Dot Grid 88600) and sponged it with the same blue ink:

I stamped the Delicate Flight image (F2043) on top and colored it with Prismacolor pencils.  I like Prismacolor pencils because they are opaque and cover a lot of things underneath them:

To finish the card, I added a saying from the Words to Live By clear set (CL5154).

Would yo like to win the Delicate Flight stamp?  It is such a fun image to color.  Leave a comment on this post for your chance to win!
