Meredith Dillman's Airship Digital Image from Sweet Pea Stamps

This is a card I have made with a Meredith Dillman's digital image from Sweet Pea Stamps called "Airships".  I fell in love with Sweet Pea Stamps a few years back but now they have digital images it is perfect for people like me who hate waiting for things to come in the post.  The image has been coloured in with my Promarkers and I have kept the colours vintage looking.  The backing papers I have been given and I distressed all of them with my Tim Holtz distressing tool and inked the edges with a chalk ink pad.  I thought an interesting addition to the card would be to use some chipboard shapes I have had for years and years so I coloured them with Promarkers and added a sentiment peel-off to them.  I have simply finished the card off with some card candi as I wanted to not detract from the gorgeous image and also it is costing more and more to post here in the UK so it needs to be kept as flat as possible.  The inside has been decorated to match.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Paper Play - Out with the old and in with the new (old is the chipboard shapes I have had for years and years and the new is my digital image)
