Soaring into Spring

Hello everyone.  I'm sharing a corrugated cardboard hanging with you today, with some spring colours against a wintry background.  And the Think and Wonder girl is back in action!
She's been stamped in Watering Can Archival onto Specialty Stamping Paper, and then inked with Pumice Stone Distress Ink.
The Helen Keller quote from Quote & Quotables has had the same treatment - and they've both of course had some spritzing and flicking to create extra texture.
They're mounted onto some old cardboard packaging which had a rough brushing of Stone Fresco Paint.  And then I stamped the little flourish from the Serenity plate, also in Pumice Stone DI, which tones with the cardboard beautifully, I think.
The flowers and butterflies were all originally cream or ivory, but I used some sprays made up from Primary Elements powders by Luminarte to give them a shot of colour - Hot Cinnamon and Spiced Pumpkin to be precise.
A little twine through some painted eyelets means you can hang the whole thing on the wall to inspire you to soar!

If you're doing any soaring with Artistic Outpost images this month, come and share the projects with us at the Monthly Referral to be in with a chance at the prize draw or one of our coveted Top Three spots.  Hope to see you there... and thank you so much for stopping by today.
