TMR#88 & J2718~ Watercolor Wings, Sky is the Limit, Stampin Up

 I made two awesome cards today trying a new technique with string that I learned here at The House that Builds Stamps  I followed the directions but I chose a couple colors and I  used waxed paper for the ink droplets, then I sprayed it with a spritz of water to help spread it out.  I smashed the string in the wax paper and pulled it through then swirled it onto the paper.   I was able to make two cards because of the "mirror image"   and for some reason my string art just looked like motion to me so I wanted to finish my cards off with something that seemed to say movement.. action.. So hence I chose the top card to be submitted to the following challenges:

Anything Goes Challenge ~ J2718

The stamp sets featured in today's cards are:
Stampin Up: Watercolor Wings
Stamping Up: Sky is The Limit

I'm wondering if you know what film inspired my plane card?  
 It's an action movie
There are four in the series as of now.
The first movie hit the big screens in 1981
A fifth in the making which they say will be released in 2020
Director: Steven Spielberg 

Any idea yet?  
Indiana Jones
Did you guess right?   
Now out of curiosity.  Which card do you like better?  The butterfly or the plane?    I'm really pleased with this technique.. It fabulously fun to try.   You do get a bit inky, but gosh I get inked up just stamping so no problem.  
Thank you so much for stopping by for a visit.
Keep Smiling and Keep Stamping.

  6. OMG!! What beautiful cards! This technique was made for these stamps! I will have to try this out! We loved that movie! Both cards wre great but my favorite is the plane!

  7. What cool cards!! (I have to admit, I haven't even had time to check out that tutorial, yet!) A really fun technique and I agree that it looks like motion. I really like both of them, but I think the airplane is my favorite. Thanks for playing with The House That Stamps Built.
