Plane Card

I'm really getting the hang of both watercolouring and masking now.
Cut out a cirlcle on post-it-notes as a moon and stuck it on off-white pearlescent paper, used distress ink in broken china and faded jeans as well as versamagic chalk ink in perfect plumeria and pink grapefuit whith a thick water pen/brush to make the sky. I then stamped plane in black stazon and coloured with distress ink in walnut stain. Background is same plain roughly stamped with distress ink in vintage photo, to get the rough stamped look i sit my card on the board i use for my paint and glazes as it is a bit uneven and gives a distressed look to the stamped images.
Added a strip of patterned paper to finish.
Not bad for a first attempt.
