To make this card I combined the Keep Climbing Stamp set with the Flying Eagle stamp. I've been wanting to use these stamps together - so now I have my chance!
|The Sky is the Limit!!|
To make this card I stamped the ODBD Keep Climbing image and colored it using Copics. Then I sponged the sky, added a few puffy clouds, and mounted that panel. I stamped and colored the Eagle, also using Copics, then carefully cut out the image. To give the Eagle even more depth I used a stylus to gently expand the chest and wing areas, giving him a 3-D effect. I also added a bit of Glassy Glazze to his beak and eye. The effect is subtle, but definitely shows - especially in the real life card version :).
This photo shows some of that detail:

The last step was the placement. I experimented a bit and finally decided a little fancy flourish would work to dress things up a bit and bring everything together, without taking away from the masculine feel. I love the rugged yet soft and classic look of this card - and I hope you do too.

This card was made for a very special person on my team in our Randolph (Boston) office. He is amazing in so many ways not only in his work but also as a person, and he will be truly missed. Especially by those of us that worked closely with him every day. For him, the Sky is the Limit!! This card will be circulated and signed by everyone in our Randolph office this week.
Here are pictures of the sets used for this card:
