Go Fly a Kite!

I had time to play with another one of the new stamps I picked at Buffalo Stamps. Flower Soft has a new line of stamps called Moments in Time and they are so wonderful for coloring. The one I bought is called "The Kite". Having 2 sons, 3 nephews and a big kid husband, this one just called my name.


I dragged out my dye inks and water brush and had some nice therapy time. As you can see, the stamp is quite large so I made it into a 5 1/4" square card. The sentiment is from an SU set.

My guys don't actually fly kites that often but they do like to throw boomerangs in the park. They are a little less weather dependant than kites. Hubby first got into boomerangs when we were dating and now he is teaching our boys. We have a lot of laughs in the process! Our last outing in the fall created a small scene as kids in the area started to gather for the show. I don't think they had ever seen anyone throw a boomerang before. At the end they gave the guys a standing ovation. Josh and Kaleb said they felt like rock stars, lol.

Oh how I long for green grass and warm breezes again! Hurry up spring.

Love this boyish card. You are the one that should feel like a "rock star" after giving us the tip in your tutorial yesterday to cut our compostion books in half. I haven't ever seen anyone do this before.

Beautiful card, Tracy! I was thinking that maybe if my husband had been interested in boomerangs, he would have come back by now. Just a thought. It helps to have a warped sense of humor at times!

P.S. Do you find that you prefer watercoloring with inks or watercolor crayons?
