Craft-Room Challenge, Things with Wings

What better than a new challenge at the end of a long week-end?   Well at Craft-Room we have just the thing with out next challenge.

Annie has chosen this fortnights theme going for the ever popular theme of 'Things with Wings'.  Annie is a great fan of 'altered art' and would love to see any kind of project so long as wings are a prominent feature she will not mind.

Once again we welcome The Stamp Man as our sponsor, they are offering £10 to one lucky person to spend at their online treasure chest of goodies.
The Stamp Man                                   



For my sample I've created a tag featuring one of my favourite birds, Sea Gulls.  Yes I know they make a horrid noise but which ever species of gull you watch look at the shapes they make with their bodies and wings.   Watch how gracefully the command the air coming to settle on the water as stable as if on land.    Un-concerned by people in the south coast town of Swange these birds are know for stealing the fish and chips out of your hand!   Yeah that can be a bit scary.

Here I've just stamped the image 3 or 4 times the first impression onto the tag itself along with an Andy Skinner sentiment.   Tag embossed with a TH folder and colour blended over the unstamped part with the fabulous ink dusters.    Stamped image coloured with ProMarkers and layered onto the tag 3D decoupage style.

Here is a side view showing the layers.

Completed the tag with a little metal charm in the shape of an anchor.

Other challenges I'm sharing this with:

613 Avenue - Always anything goes Twist use metal
Come and Get It - Lots of Layers
Pile it on - Metal
Sentimental Sundays - Always with a Sentiment Theme Things with Wings
Dream Valley Challenges - Things with Wings
