SCD - Arch - Bird

Off to Ally Pally tomorrow hope all of you who went today left something for the rest of us LOL


Its the last Archs challenge at least for now, from Something Completely Different The theme this time is an arch with a bird, gave me an excuse to use a stamp set from the green grocer a few weeks back, Recycled Rubber! and the chipboard TH die bird that Sam sent me ages ago.

The arch itself is Tando with blended DI in blue, parchment and Nick Bantock Chrome Yellow. Stamped the main image and bee in black, was going to emboss but thought better of it.   Hightlighted the edges with Sakura glitter.   Coloured the bird with scattered straw and stormy sky through some sequin waste.   The wing was coloured in the same way but the Chrome Yellow went over the top.   Bird and wing were then sprayed with GM.   Wing attached to bird, bird attached to arch.
