I think I can Fly

The image of the man trying to fly with his constructed wings reminded me of a dragonfly which inspired this card. He is floating around amongst the wonderful images on the French Flight plate.  The Paris Exposition is a perfect complement to this set and I added the Eiffel Tower in the background.

The images were stamped using a brown water resistant ink on pattern paper. I added colors using watercolor pencils and a water brush. The balloon was stamped twice and pop dotted to give depth and the wings on the man are also layered with acetate wings.

Have a wonderful weekend!  A Happy 2012 to you!
