Winged Things

Hello!  Linda Coughlin back with you today to share a card I made using several of the March release plates from Artistic Outpost.  My card features a fabulous sentiment from a fabulous set Quotes & Quotables.  This set has become a favorite go-to set for me.

My main backgound layer was stamped randomly with a number of images from the Flower Market set and then sponged with distress inks including Weathered Wood, Dried Marigold, Scatterd Straw and Vintage Photo. After sponging, I ran it through the Damask Texture Fade. The sentiment and winged things were stamped and then cut out with a new favorite die from Tim Holtz - the ATC and corners die. My other new favorite die is the ticket die also used here in black, both dies are such perfect sizes for using on cards. The letters from the Secretary Pool set are definitely going to be another go-to fav, this time I used them to spell out SOAR. Continuing the theme of winged things, I added a tiny Venise applique butterfly that I hand dyed.

I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend.  Thanks so much for stopping by today.
