Morgan's Artworld #6 Anything with Wings
The starting point of this card was the little birds on a wire (Tim Holtz 'Life's Possibilities' set), it was leftover from a previous project as was the small background behind them. I hate to waste anything so I mounted them and then pondered on ideas to complete the card. Rummaging through my vintage stamp collection I found the 'Butterfly and Topiary Tree' by Stamps Happen. I made a background by spraying Dylusions (Cut Grass, Fresh Lime, Lemon Zest and London Blue) inks through stencils by TCW -'Mini Climbing Vine' and 'Mini Climbing Vine Rev'. Then I stamped the image in Brilliance black pigment ink. The image is very delicate and it fades into the background so I needed a focal point and I thought of the Bluebird by PSX which I stamped onto blue paper added a little shading with my Tombow markers on its wings and fussy cut it out. He is attached with some foam tape behind his wings.
I thought this little guy would be perfect for Morgan's Artworld Challenge #6 Anything with Wings.
