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!
