Let your imagination give you wings!

Hey there bloggers,
Well this time I will get this post right!!!
Hope you are having an inky day,
It is challenge time over at stampotique and create a tag, http://stampotiquedesignerschallenge.blogspot.com/2011/10/sdc40-its-tag-time.html , which I love making, so here she is:

I love Halloween stamps but it was so nice to do a non halloweeny coloured piece (as I seem to have made lots of orange lately!!) and that is why I decided on some of my favourite colours, blue and green.
I started off with some masking, stamping the stampotique girl, then masking off using eclipse tape, then I inked up some TIM wings in perfect medium and heat embossed.
Can't remeber her name, sorry .. that is really bad , when I had a classfull Iwas really hot at names, now I can't remember one, even if she is a stamp!!!!
The background was made using my favourite background technique of the moment, colouring tag with distress inks,then splatting with big drops of water and blotting dry with kitchen towel , if only I was that creative in the kitchen, which believe me I AM NOT!!!!I then let this dry ( no I wasn't that patient, I blasted it with my heat gun!!!!). Once dry I buffed off the wings with kitchen towel to remove any DI left on them.
The tag was then stamped with Tim script stamp, in peeled paint DI.
To add that last bit I added my brand new, much sought after Tim flourish, gosh it is yummy!!!
To finish I added this great quote from Tim stamps and some vintage cream seam binding which I coloured with DI and spritzed with water so the colours blend.
Bought a huge roll of this ribbon and thought I must be mad to spend that on such a massive roll, but it is GREAT..you can colour it , crinkle it, stamp it..so much fun!
Anyway enough rambling, I am entering this for the following competitions,
