Winged Beauty

A journal page taking flight.


Belly Dancer

Feathered Wing Right

Feathered Wing Left

Field of Stars 

Black Permanent Ink

White card stock

White Journal Page


Distress Oxides: Antique Linen, Fossilized Amber & Broken China

Distress Ink: Mustard Seed, Seedless Preserves, Wilted Lilac, Chipped Sapphire, Salty Ocean & Mermaid Lagoon

Black pen for outlining

Glue Stick


1. Stamp both wings in black on the white card stock and once dry, fussy cut the wings and the belly dancer out. The Belly Dancer's background is trimmed completely off to just allow for the figure.

2. Using Distress Oxides and a blending brush, color in the figure and a bit on the wings. Wings were left mostly white except for the Blue China shadows.

3. Prepare the background of the journal by using Distress inks. I used my craft mat, swiped each color on it, then sprayed water.  I then dabbed the journal page into the various ink colors to get the effect I wanted of a sky. The inks used: Wilted Lilac, Chipped Sapphire, Salty Ocean & Mermaid Lagoon.

4. Using the Field of Stars stamp, I inked up using Mustard Seed and Seedless Preserves Distress inks and stamped across the background.


5. Position the wings to connect to the belly dancer as if they were coming out of her back. Once satisfied with the position, glue down the wings to the background slightly off center and tilted as though she were flying.

 6. Once everything is attached and dry, use black ink pen to carefully outline the figure.

Add sayings if you like.  For me, I liked how graphic she looked.
