Jet Trails Thinking of You Note Card

This background paper reminded me of Offspring2 and his time lapse photography.

Here is one of his photos:

The photo was taken in our front yard, the dotted lines are star trails (created by the rotation of the earth within the time lapse period), the curved trails are planes going out of BWI.

Here is a link to his portfolio if you are interested in seeing more of his work:  Jonathan’s portfolio  .

Supplies:  Stamp – Papertrey Ink, paper – Carta Bella Passport, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Basic Black, ink – VersaFine Onyx Black, die – Stampin’ Up!, embossing powder – Stampendous Detail clear.
