Dreams Have Wings

Time for my weekly DT piece for Creative Expressions using the Umount Birds A5 Stamp Plate by Sam Poole.
This week I have used the trees as branches stamped with Archival Ink onto a spritzed background adding the fabulous ornate cage dangling from the branches.
I stamped my little bird on the branch with monarch orange Archival Ink and added smaller birds to the bottom of my card.  I have added a tiny tag stamped with FLY and the fabulous sentiment "Of course you can fly, for dreams have wings", colouring with wild honey Distress Ink.
For a little more interest I have added faux stitching to the edge of my card.

Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy your weekend. I'm off to Port Sunlight tomorrow, quite looking forward to browsing and being away from my desk for a while. If you're going, tap me on the shoulder and say Hi !!

Another fabulous card and once again, all the little added details just make it spectacular!! I love it...
Hope you are ok and looking forward to the weekend...have a good one!
Love Emma xxx
P.s. The flags on my Clarity card are designed in two separate pieces, so that you can stamp the image directly to the paper and build up the flag...very clever!!! ;) I stamped them with Memento ink pads. :)
