Father's Day Airplane

Hey everyone!  This is going to be a quick post so I can enter my card into a few challenges before they end.  Once again I'm cutting it close!  I made this card for my Dad as he likes planes (he was in the Air Force in the military. Although he wasn't a pilot).  Check it out.....


My Mom sent me this flat metal decoration thing she had found thinking I could use it for something and I figured I could use it like a stencil mask.  It worked pretty good. I sponged Pool to Navy ombré ink (Hero Arts) overtop and splattered some water and white acrylic paint.  Then I  just simply stamped the sentiment (Stampin' Up!) in black.  I really like how this turned out and it was super easy to make too.

Well, I hope you all had a good weekend. Ours was quiet and we had some great weather.  Thanks for visiting and have an awesome day!

I'm linking up to the following challenges:
