Life is beautiful

Well...doesn't time just fly. It's already time for a new challenge at The Male Room Challenge. This time we have an anything goes-challenge for you, but if you're up for it we encourage you to do the optional twist of origami in your project.

For my design team project I made this CAS card with a stamped origami paper plane and handstitching.

I started by coloring a blob of light blue using distress oxcide ink to suggest the sky. I then stamped my paper plane from the "Yappy happy mail" stamp set by Heffy Doodle. I then stamped my sentiment from the April My Monthly Hero kit.

I colored my plane using a white gel pen and a silver pen for the shadowed part of the plane.

I poked holes where I wanted the plane's flying trail to go, connecting the plane and the sentiment, before I handstiched the trail using dark grey embroidery thread. I connected the flying trail dots using a silver gel pen.

I cut my panel to size using a Lawn Fawn stitched rectangle die before matting the panel with some silver glitter cardstock. I glued my panel on a white cardbase and for finishing touched I covered the silver pen parts with a coat of Stardust Stickles glitter glue for some extra shine.

I really hope you will join us the next couple of weeks. I can't wait to see what you will make.

I am adding this card to the following challenges:
* Through the purple haze - #156 I've got the blues
* Jo's scrap shack - #281 Anything goes
* AAA Cards - #140 Up to one third
* Crafty sentiments designs - Pastel colors 


  1. Stunning! Love the placement in the corner and that's a really clever way to use TMR twist of origami. Thanks so much for playing at AAA Cards, hope to see you join in with future challenges too.

  2. Lots of movement and a great CAAS card. CarolG
