Take Flight

I really like this Creative Expressions stamp for male cards, this one's for a plane buff so I thought it would be a suitable image.  The sentiment stamps are from two different Papermania sets.
 After stamping with Stazon, I inked the whole piece with Tea Die Distress Ink and spritzed with water, then dried with a heat gun for a vintage look.  Then it was in with the Distress Markers and a water brush to pick out key elements of the design, leaving others areas uncoloured.  I'm forming quite an attachment to my Distress Markers!  They'll never replace my Promarkers, but I'm really enjoying playing with them, they're such good quality and so rich in pigment.
Because the stamp is so large, I kept the layout very simple, using Papermania Chronology papers.
