Be Yourself!

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.
 I created a mixed media card using one of my favourite images from Stampers Anonymous. The backgroundhas been coloured with PanPastels Diarylide Yellow and Orange.
I stamped the focal image with Black Archival Ink and then used a mask before stamping the number in the background. I added further dimension to the wings and hat, leaving these stamped pieces in white to give a contrast to the background.
I added a touch of stencilling to the background applying black texture paste through a stencil. I also added a few scratchy lines using the end of an old credit card along with a few delicate black paint splatters.
I also added Imagine and DREAM to the bottom of my card using Visible Image stamps.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Tracy x x

Bold in colour and composition which works an absolute treat for the sentiment conveyed in this piece of art. I like the way you layered the wings and hat.
A stunning creation.
