Ticket To Fly

Hey all, how are you doing with your mid-week creating? Having fun? what have you been up to? I’ve been doing a lot of tearing and sticking, preparing some journal page backgrounds for painting. So thought I would continue the tearing theme with this little mixed media card.

I’ve used the Prima Marketing Almanac papers for this card today, in fact every thing is Prima today!

The bird is a rub on from the Prima Tea and Silk collection and I’ve rubbed her onto card that I’ve coloured with Tim Holtz Ranger Distress stains first.

The flowers are the Homespun Bittles Prima Flower embellishments, I’ve been saving these for a special make, I just love the texture of them!

I used the lovely Prima cling mount Songbirds stamps to stamp out the foliage in black Stazon and Gold acrylic paint on acetate.

And then stamped out the tickets from the same kit to layer on the painted corrugated card with the strips from the Prima Almanac paper.

All a bit of layering fun!

Hope you are having a fabulous Wednesday.

    Hi Kim, this is a beautiful piece, I love the composition and the colours you have used. Those flowers look like they are made from aida cross stitch fabric..might just have to look mine out and see it I can make something similar!
