Dream a little dream...

Some dreamy play with new stamps and arts parts...makes me happy!
So here is me, indulging myself and playing with no idea where i will end up...so here is where it ended:

I have hung my nose over this set of stamps for some time and sold some old stash to
 pay for it! I started by inking some arts parts with DI, drying between each layer of colour.
 Then when dry I added the number strip  in DI,
dried and then added the same strip in DI and embossed on back and across frame front.
 The main man image is layered with DI coloured parts, manila face, and ranger foil crown
 and to give more depth to wings I used clearly for art...

The dream was stamped in archival ink, coloured with DI and a layer of
fab rock candy added! I love this stuff...

To complete some idea-ology...and voila..my dreamy piece was done...no where near where I thought it may end..but a fun one the less!!!
Let me know what you think...we all need to dream sometimes?!right?!
