she spread her wings...

Hi everyone!!  Michele here today with a vision of spring...
Where I am it is cold and dreary and I am having visions of spring already!  I am longing for the sun to shine and the flowers to bloom.
With that in mind I created a small canvas inspired by those visions.

I started with a 5" square piece of chipboard, painted a thin coat of white gesso and then added a heavy layer of art basics light paste.

I let the paste set and dry a bit and then stamped the Clockface right in the paste.  The background color is created with Distress Stain and Ink

I stamped Fairy Girl by Cat Kerr and 2 sets of Pair of Butterfly Wings on heavy white cardstock. These are colored with Distress Crayons, cut out and layered.

The double wings bring so much texture to the canvas.

The sentiment, She Spread Her Wings, is stamped on a strip of metal and attached with some Ideology Hitch Fasteners.

I finished up with Prima flowers, art bascis glass glitter and some black thread.
Are you dreaming of spring now too??

Until next time...get inky!
