Dream a little dream

Morning, hope you are all enjoying your weekend. We have another fabulous challenge for you over at the Love to Create Challenge Blog where the theme is Anything Creative/Mixed Media Goes.
Today I opted for a red and black theme with touches of rust, something a little different image wise which I thought was perfect for today's challenge as we are celebrating Father's Day in the UK.
I coloured a piece of white card with Permanent Red PanPastel and then added Permanent Red Shade around the edges. I stamped the focal image (one of Tim Holtz) with Black Archival .
I added a touch of dimension to my focal image on the wings, text and crown and kept them white, which I love against the more prominent red background. I also included a touch of stencilling, applying Black Coarse Pearl Medium PanPastel over a Tim Holtz Layering Stencil.
I wanted to add touches of rust to my design and so included a circle of wire around my focal image along with two strips of rusty wire down one edge, all stapled into place with the Tiny Attacher.
CREATE and DREAM has been added to the top of my card, applying VersaMark Ink through a stencil and applying Permanent Red Shade to the top for a tone on tone effect.

Great Masculine card with a touch of the alternative by adding the wings Tracy . They really pop by by leaving them B&W against the striking red background . Rusty wire always a winner for me
