Wings and things ...

Linda Elbourne is the Director of a new challenge site called 'Simon says Stamp and Show'. She put a plea out to all readers of her blog asking for submissions in case nobody entered!!! Anyway, I thought I would oblige (won't tell her I was going to do so anyway!) and, guess what, I found another Pringle lid lying around so that just had to be my substrate.


I used a piece of Tim Holtz card, cut it to size and then attached a piece of dictionary page that I had coloured with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. I then stamped 'take flight' onto it twice. To take the glare of the plastic away, I edged the lid with Rust alcohol ink. I die-cut the Grunge Board shapes and used Distress Ink to colour them, applying Fired Brick Distress Stickles to the heart. I stuck these onto the lid with Glossy Accents. While waiting for these to stick properly I used Rust alcohol ink to lightly colour a bead that says 'soul' and a Tim Holtz metal bird. Having put in the circle of decorated card at the back of the lid, I stuck a memo pin through the lid and attached the bird with jump rings. I then used the same stamp (from Paper Artsy) as earlier on a piece of scrap card, tore it and coloured it and pushed it into the memo pin. Sticking on the bead completed my altered lid.
