Fly Free

Fly Free

A couple of the new stamps, designed by Trish Latimer at StarTrishDesigns, on Etsy, arrived last week and I just had to play!

When they arrived I was pleasantly surprised.  They are big enough to use in journaling and scrappin' but okay on a card too!

While over in Mount Gambier at the weekend at a casual crafting session, I had a go at colouring this one in.  I combined my Inktense pencils with distress inks and just played.  There is something really therapeutic about just sitting with a group of chatty women and colouring in.
Time went so quickly, then it was the trip back to town through kangaroo country after dark...lol, that will teach me for talking too much!



Then I had the problem of what background to put her on.  I loved her just the way she was and wanted her to be the star...
Out came my distress paints!
I had done a similar style, here, but wanted to improve my technique with a little more white...I always seem to forget the 'white' amongst all the ink...

Enjoy!

I would like to enter this into ~
just for fun.
