Let’s Go Fly A Kite!


Let’s Go Fly a Kite, up to the highest heights. Let’s Go Fly a Kite and send it soaring!

Oops sorry you caught me singing again … but this card reminded me of that song Let’s go fly a kite from Mary Poppins ….. wow that is going way back LOL!


Anyway it is Elzybells challenge time over on the Elzybells Art Stamps blog. This week the challenge was to alter an image, what a fun challenge. I used to do this a lot years back but i haven’t done it much in recent years so it was fun to do.

First up I had to select which stamp I was going to alter and I decided on the Teddy Heart Balloon image. Normally this teddy is holding a balloon but with a little playing around I was able to make it look like it was flying the kite in the mini messages – summertime set.

To do this I stamped the bear onto a scrap of white card and also on a post it note. I then cut out each image. I placed the post it note image onto my card where I wished to place the finished bear and then used my stamp positioner to stamp the kite. Keeping the mask in place I then airbrushed the clouds and grass area. When I removed my mask there was a white bear shape making it easy to work out where to position the bear image.

While on a recent shopping trip I found this fun kite designer paper, at the time I didn’t have a reason to use it but it looks like it came in handy after all. The sentiment is also from the mini messages – summertime set. To finish of my card I added the different colored ribbons to the side of my card.

Don't forget to check out what the rest of the design team created for this challenge.
