Flying By the UAE

October 15, 2016

Yesterday, one of my student’s fathers came into my classroom to tell the students about United Arab Emirates. He was stationed there for 4 months with the United States Air Force. The presentation was very interesting.

This is the Thank You card I created for my students to sign and send to him. I tried to create a card that reflected his presentation.



Size:  Vertical side fold 6” x 9” card

Extra Details:  I started with a full sheet of water color paper that I scored and folded in half to create a large card. Then, I started stamping. I drew the sand dunes in with a thin black Sharpie Marker. I also added some small dots to give the sand some texture.

I used Crayola water colors to add color to the card front. I was a bit heavy handed with the brown paint on the tree trunks, but it dried in a really cool way.

Challenges Entered:

Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge: Explore the World



Stamps Used: Lawn Fawn’s Plan on It, A Good Apple, Flying By, Fintastic Friends, and Critters From the Past

Ink: Versa Fine


Hope you enjoyed the card
