Creating a Monochromatic Plane Fun Sky Scene
Posted on June 22 2022
Hey there! Daniel West, here, with a monochromatic sky scene featuring the Plane Fun Pocket Pals Stamps Set and Dies.
Using a simple color palette can really help pull a composition together for you. Too many color options make my eyes water! But a really great simple palette makes them smile.

I pulled out the Plane Fun set, some markers, ink and blending brushes and had a ball with this. Here's the list of LDRS Creative goodies I used:
First, I stamped and die cut the plane, clouds and balloon images with Raven Ink. After coloring them in with blue and cool gray markers, I die cut them out and set them aside.
TIP: This plane is so fun to imagine with different logos or names or designs. I used the die as a guide to draw a line from the back to the front and then colored it in with a darker blue marker! You could add hibiscus flowers for a trip to Hawaii or write in an airline you make up!
Next, I used the negative of the cloud image as a stencil to add in some clouds to the top of an A2-sized card panel. Then, I trimmed the panel down a 1/4" on all sides.
After that, I cut the cloud in half and popped it up on either side of the panel. Then, I tucked in the ballon behind one of the clouds at an angle. It looks like the plane just flew by it. hehehe.
Next, I added the plane to the front with foam tape and popped it all up on the front of an A2-sized card base. Some of the plane was hanging off the edges of the project, so I trimmed it down to fit inside my envelope.
To finish off the project, I added a black and white heat embossed sentiment strip to the bottom of the card!!
I hope you enjoyed this little monochromatic project.
