Let's Fly Away

Good morning all, and thanks for popping in..

Today it is the start of a new challenge over at the Fussy and Fancy Challenge Blog..

Our theme for the next two weeks is

Let's Fly Away,

And is hosted by the lovely Eileen,

We are sponsored by Fresh Brewed Designs

Here is what I came up with....I do hope that you like it..

I started with a wonderful stamp from Clarity.....The Paris Collage stamp. I stamped it one and a half times using Potting soil , Archival ink.


Next I added some colour around the edges using Latte Adirondack ink and a stencil brush

Followed by some Ground Espresso Distress ink.

I also added some ink to a couple of flowers, these are from the Hobby House and a vintage tag .

I stamped a couple of Dragonflies, and cut them out .

I do love Graphic 45 papers, this one is from the Botanical tea collection and is called Fauna...some matting and layering and some lovely vintage lace.

Next I added the topper followed by the flowers, dragonflies, and a tag , made using another of my favourite Clarity stamps .

Just to add some more detail , I added some Film strip ribbon, from Tim Holtz Idea-ology range, and glossy accents to the clock face.

Here is a closer look...

Now it is over to you...I would love you to take a look at the rest of the samples made by the DT....and even better why not enter....

After all Lisa did last month....and guess what ...she only went and won.....yah...

Well Done Lisa...

You know what they need to be in win it....

Right , I had better get on....I have a day out with three special ladies planned...

And then tomorrow it is Clarity looking forward to spending the day with such lovely crafters.

Whilst I remember our Barbara is on Hochanda on Saturday with some fab new Groovi plates...

Take care all,

Much love and hugs
