Soar


I had so much fun making this. I got to get inky and play with some cool things.


Grungepaper base embossed with Tim Holtz Embossing folder : collage
Inked with Fired Brick, walnut stain and probably some Rusty Hinge in the mix too.
Tim Holtz adage ticket
Flower made with scalloped circle punch using scraps and some of the layers are the paper that one of my online orders came in.. (that thinner packing paper)
Basic Grey brad in center...inked with walnut stain and some Cinnamon stickles
the metal strip is the aluminum flashing tape I used alcohol inks and embossed with same EF
Winged Things Die (Tim Holtz)
Paper under wings is Graphique 45
Stamps from stash (thought the tiffany lamps went with the wings)
Misc buttons and thread- its so easy to sew on grunge paper
Part of a swirl flourish from Tim Holtz
Fired Brick Distress stickles and Cinnamon stickles
The top I used the Baroque die and cut in half and adhered to back and trimmed to make a topper
Slapped the whole thing on recycled chipboard and trimmed.
Twine is misc from stash


Challenges:

Simon Says Stamp and Show- things with wings
Paper Sundaes- metal (the aluminum tape)
Etsy Inspired- Cathy Walters using this piece
