find your wings and fly..

hi there,
well here i am with a quick post and another tag, playing with my dylusions mop up tag..a trick courtesy of Dyan, to use a second tag to mop up ink from first tag...so here it is.

I left the tag to dry and then used Dyans faux bleach technique..of ghosting and some stencils and some inks..i found some fab links to videos here, and have already learnt so many cool things..
Then i stamped a Wendy vecchi sentiment onto some mop up card and stamped some dylusions birds onto dylusions wires...added some stencil drawn leaves and some white highlights

 and some ribbon dyed using sprays and spritzed with water and heat tool dried which does dull colour.., love the mottled colour effect.

I am entering this for the following competitions:
