Fly


Created for the Sunday Postcard Challenge where the theme is Butterflies. The background was created by sponging Adirondack inks in Clover & Denim. This was then stamped with a script using Brilliance Moonlight White. The collage images were then applied and grungeboard letters at the top. The grungeboard was first painted with gesso, then coloured with Distress Inks in Spiced Marmalade and Fired Brick. It was stamped over using StazOn Black.

This is beautiful. I love the vivid colors. Most of my stuff is usually softer, more muted colors, so I love looking at deep vivid color schemes.
It's Fab!!!
