Come Fly With Me - Simon Says Stamp DT Card

Hello lovely peeps,
Both "kids" are back home from their holidays, I've been up to my armpits in washing & drying and I am counting down until my holiday. I am not going away as my favourite type of holiday is staying at home which may sound incredibly boring to some but I'm always happiest with my home comforts, fur babies and of course my copics lol. Maybe next time I should plan it so my week off is when the "big kids" are away & have a little break from the "Mum have you washed my ....." or "Mum where's my ........" lol.

On to today's card -

& this week our challenge is
My lovely teamies and I are featuring Tim Holtz products on our creations this week, if you have any we'd love to see them but as always it's not compulsory to use them to join our challenge.

I've used a cute little Edwin on my card (sorry peeps I couldn't find him to link to) and teamed him up with some Tim Holtz & lovely Simon Says Stamp exclusive goodies.
The clouds background I've created by die cutting Simon's Flat Bottom Clouds & blending distress ink around the tops of them and repeating it randomly with the different clouds working downwards.

The copic colours I've used are -
 skin - E11, E00, E000, R12, hair E47, E44, E42, dungarees - W6, W3, W2, W0, socks - C3, C1, C0, top - B23, B21, B0000, plane - N7,N5, N3, N1, N0 / R89, R59, R56 / B24, B24, B21

As always our lovely Heidi is sponsoring our challenge with a $50 voucher for the fabulous
