Fly



'Birds' is our new Challenge over at Fashionable Stamping Challenges.  Please pop over for all the details and see what my DT sisters have been making. Please remember we need to see some stamping on your projects.
This card was made using a selection of Indigo Blu stamps.

I used a resist technique for the background, using Perfect Medium then dusting over with mica powder.
The sentiment is stamped and heat embossed on to a couple of Spellbinders  Labels28 .

The flowers were  stamped and coloured with water colour paint with a touch of glitter in the centre.
All the other shading is Vintage Photo distress ink.



Other challenges I will be entering are
Stamping Sensations February Challenge, Fur and Feathers
Diva's by Design Challenge Winged Things.

Thank you all for stopping by, I always appreciate your comments.
