I've have had a close encounter with the NHS over the weekend as a patient, and spent Easter being pumped full of antibiotics as somehow I had managed to get pneumonia, so no Easter eggs for me! I must usually be a pretty healthy person as I've reached my fifth decade and never been ill enough to have to go to hospital before. Anyway now I'm home and feeling heaps better, so thought I would have a little time with my ink and stuff.
This wall hanging is my entry for Grungy Monday No.5 at Studio L3. The challenge this week is A New Dimension, and the full details of what to do can be found over at Tim's Blog as the May 2008 Challenge. It also fits in with the Sunday Stamper theme this week which is wings, and as there is a solitary button, I think I'll make a three for one and also enter it in Simon Says Stamp and Show Some Buttons.
This was a neat technique, and not one I'd discovered before on Tim's Blog. I've used the new Papillon stamp, a Wendy Vecchi Art Parts watch, and some Crowded Attic paper, Coffee Archival Ink, and Broken China Distress Stain, plus some bits of Ideology. The wings are made from the new Kraft Glassine paper, with some gold leaf flakes. ( They remind me of a moth I've seen somewhere, probably in a book, as in real life I am rather a wimp about the way they flutter round, and don't really like them much, certainly not enough to get a close up look at their wings).
