Take flight

 Hello everyone, 

Welcome to my blog where today  have a journal spread which I made for the new challenge over at Country View Challenges. The theme this month was set by Rachel and is 'Things with wings". 

I really like how this came out! 

Here's how I made it:

First, I chose one of the Found Relatives by Tim Holtz and gave her a tiny bit of colour using colouring pencils. 

Next I cut her out. 

I then used half of a butterfly from Tim Holtz' pack of 'Layers". I gave that a little colour too, this time with Distress Oxide ink "Vintage Photo". 

I used these two inks and a blending tool to add colour to my pages, I did also drip some water on it but you can hardly see it. I suppose it depends on the quality of the paper how much you can achieve. 


Next, I stamped the background randomly using these AALL & Create stamps and the same distress Oxide Inks and a VersaFine Clair Nocturne pad. 

The sentiment is from this stamp set by Tracy Evans for AALL & Create. 

And here it is all put together. I really like it ! 

We would love for you to play along with us but before you do, make sure to read the rules. You'll find them HERE. 

Thank you for stopping by today!
