Take Flight

Good morning, Sunday crafters! I have a little inky fun to start your day. This card is almost entirely Tim Holtz, with just a hint of Lavinia Stamps. The inspiration for this card started with the colors: black, grey, yellow. I tried something new and used black watercolor paper as my base. My background is a gel print using Lavinia Stamps’ stencil Elegance with yellow and black acrylic paint with my gel plate. The center image is black water color that was sprayed with Distressed Oxide sprays in Hicory Smoke and Mustard Seed with a little gold spray (made with water and gold Perfect Pearls). The bird is heat embossed using Versamark Onxy black ink and Black Cherry Emerald Creek embossing powder. The remaining stamps are just black ink; they look more grey, probably because of the emobssing. I used the Mustard Seed spray as water color and colored the wings of the bird. I may go back with some gauche paint to make the wings stand out more? Thoughts on that? I am loving mixed media these days.
