Things with Wings
Simon Says Stamp has issued their first ever challenge. And it is such a fun one! It's called "Things with Wings", go check it out! Anyway, so it got my creativity flowing and this is what came out of it! I recently got in touch with a very old friend from 20 years ago. Her kids are grown, mine are almost grown.. It got me thinking how Time Flies! So that's the inspiration behind my piece. Here is my "Things with Wings"... Have a great day! :)
The background paper is by Creative Imaginations, I also used a scrap of leftover vintage newsprint paper. The wings are grungeboard, and the clock face is by Heidi Swapp, with some Tim Holtz game spinners for the clock hands. I used Distress Inks in Antique Linen, Vintage Photo, Walnut Stain, and a bit of Aged Mahogany on the card and papers. Then on the wings I used Aged Mahogany and Black Soot. A scrap of lace, and the rub on is from a Marah Johnson swatch book. Used some sticky foam to make the clock face 3 dimensional. And I added some staples for added effect!
