Take Flight

I want to start by saying a huge thank you to everyone who has left such lovely comments.
A super speedy post tonight as it has been a bit of a day/week and time is not on my side. This is my entry for Linda Ledbetter's Studio L3 challenge 'Tissue Wrap Collage' which I have combined with the latest Fashionable Stamping Challenge 'Steampunk'.

So it was time to flick through TH's CC2 for the tissue wrap technique, with lots of stamping (Kanban steampunk), layers, Spellbinders cogs, and a couple of other bits...

Alcohol inks were used to slightly 'tarnish' some metal washers,

and the 'propeller'? Well, all I can say is that it was holding an icecream based desert which I devoured, in the interests of art of course! LOL
Well, off now to watch the Eurovision semi-finals - trust me, some light relief is needed tonight. Hope those of you in the UK are all finding ways to keep cool. Hugs, Buttons x
