LOC Wings of Love

I am trying my hand at various techniques and styles and am proceeding cautiously with Mixed Media - I fell in love with this darling image and have had it printed for some time - only just getting brave enough to create something with her

I printed off the image, cutting it out and inked around the edges

I have stamped the largest butterfly from the Layers of Color Flutterescent art stamp set

adding a sentiment from The Love Chapter art stamp set to some Basic Grey DP

and colouring some flowers from the Nature Walk art stamp set, popping them up on foam tape.

As you can see there is some dimension here but not too much !
