Flying Airships

So it's raining again!! But it's not all bad as I've been playing with my new Distress Markers.  Now I'm not a massive marker fan but I got a handful of these to have a go with and I have to admit I am quite liking them - although I'm sure there are plenty more uses for them that I have yet to discover.....

So here is a card I created with my new markers:

So I coloured my hero arts flying airship stamps using the distress markers in stormy sky and crushed olive onto kraft coloured card.  I stamped all three airships using the same colours then matted them onto blue card and then onto a kraft card blank.
The sentiment is from waltzing mouse and is stamped in black versafine.
I then added the cute green buttons which I picked up in Cath Kidson during the sale :)

I would like to enter my card in the following challenges:
