If I Had Wings

I decided on a little colour this time around for my DT piece for Creative Expressions using the Butterfly Girl by Sam Poole.

My background has been coloured with Dylusions Ink Sprays adding the odd splat using my picket fence Distress Stain.
To add a little more interest to my background I stamped the Bubble Wrap in coffee archival ink, adding highlights with my white gel pen.  I also stamped the leaf image randomly around my background.
I cut a heart from white card and coloured with Dylusions Ink Sprays adding the Bubble Wrap background to one corner and adding faux stitching to the edge for further interest.  For added dimension I cut two flowers from white card using the Spellbinders Spiral Blossom One, and again coloured with Dylusions Ink Sprays. I added my sentiments from Sam Poole's Art Sayings set to white card, coloured with the sprays and added to my card.
I stamped the Butterfly Girl onto white card and then onto Graphic 45 Steampunk Debutante paper to give further interest to her dress and wings. I added a little coloure to her face and legs with Distress Markers, and added faux stitching to the outside edge of my card.

I would also like to enter this creation into The Stampman challenge which this time around is Summer Colours.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Tracy x x
