I want to be an astronaut,a pilot and a skydiver

Unusual and too long a title for a post right?But it is about Kiara my five year old highly spirited daughter and she wants to be all that in that order.She has this story which she loves to tell that she is going to be an astronaut and then jump into a plane and then finally skydive.I guess its the influence of father talking.Anyway that apart i chose to make a LO inspired by this spirit of kiara.
WARNING- Picture heavy post

The doodled parachutes

The digi astronaut from Bugaboo.Notice the glossy accents on the mask of the astronaut.

Thank YOU with a new stamping technique

Hi peeps!
I am very busy right now ...with what?packing? NO ...I mean yes but baking too....Have baked 15 cakes since wednesday...13 banana breads and 2 sponge ( iced them).For who? Everyone possible  in the station including the DSC guards,mess staff and the tailor.TEN more to go.
have also made thank you cards for each one of them.Now have run short of few so making more.
This one is for one such purpose.
I have used a new stamping technique on this one inspired by Katie Gehring of Skipping Stones design.
Basically you stamp first with the back of a large solid stamp in a lighter color and then with the main image of the same stamp in darker color.isn't that BRILLIANT?
Tell me what you think of it?
Entering this into the following challenges
Skipping Stones design-Sketch
The Play date cafe- Colors( Black,white and a splash of Lime)
The Friday mash up- Thank You

The insides.
The insides.Notice the same flutter
