Traveling: Mary Poppins Style

Hero Arts is having a challenge to create a travel themed card on their blog. At the time "Let's Go Fly a Kite" was in my head, and I thought I should create a travel-by-umbrella Mary Poppins themed card! How fun would it be to get to travel by umbrella?! This owl is doing it and sending sunshine and laughter as he takes off!
The umbrella and grass are Quickutz Silhouette cut outs. I stamped and clear embossed the dots and flowers design block on the umbrella and then rubbed worn lipstick distress ink with a foam tool (ala Jennifer McGuire and Thinking Inking). The embossing resists the ink and you get this cool look! I added stickles to the center of the designs too.
I am still loving this cloud stamp! So fun! The grass has been foam applicator-ed (new verb) with shabby shutters. I love my foam tool! I stuck flowers in the grass to liven it up and added pearls. So cute! I also added glossy accents to the owl to make him stand out more.
The sentiment is my new favorite! It is from the Hero Arts everyday sayings set that I won in the Thinking Inking class. I curved it around to look like the owl was leaving it as he went on his trip!
[Supplies]
Paper: Neenah Paper Classic Crest (solar white)
Ink: Versamark, Distress Ink (worn lipstick, shabby shutters), Stampin' Up (orchid opulence), Adirondack (pool), Color Box cat's eye (black), Papertrey Ink (true black)
