take flight


Good afternoon, just a quick post from me with a card I made for this week's challenge at LIM. It's a sketch this week and as soon as I saw it  I knew what I wanted to make! This doesn't happen very often, not to me anyway!, so I just had to join in!

the sketch
 The stamps were free with a magazine (didn't really want the magazine...but 'needed' these stamps....)The card was quick and easy, a bit of masking, 3 shades of blue distress ink to create the ombre effect , the feather stamped with versamark and embossed in white.
I'm happy with the result!
Thanks for looking, enjoy what's left of the weekend!
