Of Course you can fly, for dreams have wings!

Just popping in to show you my third project using Sam Poole's Birds stamp set from "Creative Expressions".

My eldest daughter has the first part of her practical A2 Graphics exam today so this is really for her.  Her goal is to get an A* in graphics and then to get into Falmouth Uni to study Graphic design there.

I coloured my background using pan pastels.  The stamped birds, sentiment and swirls were all stamped in ancient page black and versafine inks.  The bird cage was stamped onto acetate and cut out before being attached to the card using a cream brad.

The hand made flowers were made as per my last post and based on Ange Lee's tutorial "here".

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

"Pan Pastel UK Challenge - Anything goes"

"I brake for challenges - Flowers"

"Sundays with Chrissy - Things with wings"

"2 Sisters - Anything goes"

"Crafty Calendar - Things with wings + Acetate"

"Inspire me Fridays - Anything goes"

Fabulous card, loving the sentiment. Good luck to your daughter for her A2 Graphics exam - my daughter is looking at Falmouth to do photography but she's only at AS level at the moment.
