Let's Fly Away!

Wings and crowns............... what more could a girl ask for?
A fabulous theme this week over on The Three Muses. I used a stamp from Invoke Arts for the heart shrine... which just happens to have a crown on it! It's stamped onto metal foil which was then glued onto chipboard, cut out and embossed with the end of an old Biro
Various coloured alchohol inks were then rubbed into the embossed areas. The doll face was stamped onto acetate and glued behind the aperture. Finally wings were made by tracing some wing shapes onto acetate with a Sharpie, cut out and a swirl stamped on one side and the other side coloured with red alcohol ink. A bit of bling on the crown and we're ready to take off! LTDO has alcohol inks as a challenge this week so this fits nicely!
