If I had wings...

This month the DT at Creative Expressions have been given the stamp set Art Sayings designed by Sam Poole. These are an incredibly versatile set of over 30 words and sayings that would accompany pretty much any project you could make! I chose the phrase 'If I had wings...' and cut out an ATC (3.5" x 2.5") and edged it with Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink
I stamped out two corners from the Accents for Art set by Wendy Vecchi in Jet Black Archival Ink and edged them as before. the Butterflies were stamped four times, again in Archival Ink. Two were edged with Fired Brick Distress Ink and two just had the word 'Fly' cut out and this was adhered to the centre of each butterfly. The phrase was stamped, cut out and edged and adhered to the centre of the ATC. 
There is so much choice on this stamp set that I'm not sure what I'll make next - isn't it lovely when you are spoiled for choice?! Thank you for popping by and I hope you have a lovely weekend x

Hi Gabrielle, I am totally in love with all things Wendy V and I adore Sam Poole's stamps too (have you seen the new bubble wrap one yet? - genious). Those butterflies are just gorgeous and I love the colours you have used on this ATC, kind of grungy but pretty too. Wonderful job. Anne x

Love this - fab colour (very unusual for you... not ...lol!!) I was going to say how great the flourish behind the butterflies is, then realised I've got it.... The sayings looks great - I was going to ask a stupid question about them then I saw it said "unmount" set... answering my question!!! Enjoy half term....
