FLY

Time for my DT piece for Artistic Outpost using the fabulous CHALK IT UP plate and the CHALKBOARD WISDOM plate.
The background of my card has been coloured with Salty Ocean and Mowed Lawn Distress Inks and spritzed with water. I have then stamped the bird from the BIRDS OF A FEATHER plate with Black Archival Ink, adding three frames from the CHALK IT UP plate, adding three layers for added dimension.
I have added leaves using Embossing Paste and stamped into the paste to add further interest and then highlighted the wonderful texture with wax.
The sentiment is from the CHALKBOARD WISDOM plate which I have cut up into pieces and added to the background.
I have added FLY using wooden letters along with wooden flowers for added interest.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
