On the wings of imagination!!!

Hey the bloggers,
Well he is my crafty offering, a tag made a while back and never blogged, my experiment with colour wash sprays!!!! short and sweet post today, shocking i know!!!
This is a lot brighter than my usual tags and a real 'experiment'for me!!!, so here she is:

I started by creating my handmade background using, masks, colour wash sprays and going for it, my thoughts were oh blimey that's bright!!!! once I had removed the masks I heat dried with heat tool, then over stamped a fab Tim script in black archival, very gently..I love the detail of adding little snippets of text to the background!
The butterfly was made using a Wendy Vecchi stamp onto colour wash sprayed paper and so was the quote, which I love!!!!Well It is Tim's!!!!!!!

I added ribbon spritzed with colour wash sprays and some ideaology, some pins from stash and a rosette made from a new Tim die I had for my birthday!!!!
Overall,I am pleased with this piece, but it is fairly bright for me!!!

I am entering this for the following competitions:
