June Challenge by Amanda

Hi everyone, Amanda here with my take on this month's challenge - Here Come the Boys.  Our sponsor for June is Delicious Doodles, and I've chosen their exquisitely detailed Vintage Spitfire image, as vintage planes are a bit of an obsession for me.  It's a great image if you're not that keen on colouring in, as all the shading's done for you.  I've added just a hint of colour to mine using my beloved watercolour pencils.

My project is a circular easel card inspired by the WWII RAF roundel.  I say 'inspired by' because I've taken liberties with the sizes of the circles - err, I did mention my aircraft obsession, didn't I? :-)  The base of my easel card is covered with a map of the area around Eastleigh, which is where the first Spitfires were built.  Hmm, perhaps I should have kept that bit of geeky obsessiveness to myself...

I hope you like it.  More details are on my blog, including close-ups of how the Spitfire is attached (it bounces around really nicely!).  Happy crafting!

  1. Hallo Amanda,
    Deine Karte finde ich ganz toll. Ein Flugzeug mit Landkarte ist eine Super Idee.

    Viele Grüße, Carmen
