I created this cute tag for Inspiration Journal ( Inspiration Emporium's Blog) August Challenge.
This month the theme is " Go Fly A Kite ". I was just so inspired by all the awesome kite projects, I had to give it a "go" ! Besides, who couldn't enjoy a chance to win $50 Emporium bucks ... my wish list is getting so long. They carry Tim goodies too !
Using a technique I just learned, white wash stamping and my fairy garden stamp, along with my summer distressing set, I created the background. Then I had to experiment with my new dylusions stencil, and that cool dylusions fresh lime ink spray ( I was distracted so I messed up a bit), no problem... I used my mowed lawn distressing ink and the stencil again over the first attempt ... it created a cool shadow.
I cut my kite freehand , I cut three before I got it right... don't laugh! I covered it with tissue tape and lightly colorized it with salty ocean, picked raspberry and squeezed lemonade distressing ink. Then I stamped a cloud and sun scene with my itty bitty stamps ( dollar bin find at Michael's). I used a white string from my stash for the kite string and strips of a dryer sheet for the tails,, I lightly colorized them with distressing ink. I die cut a mini butterfly that I distressed and stamped with a music note stamp and popped it up. I added the words blessed, flight from chitchat, distressing the edges with
peacock feathers distressing ink. Final touch I colorized the ribbon with the summer distressing set...
