"Hope" is from The Paper Shelter

Things with Wings plus a Sentiment is the challenge this two weeks at Aud Sentiments.  So many ways you could do that - with anything from birds, airplanes, insects, angels, fairies, etc.  You choose the "wings" and create up to five entries for chances at winning more images from the sponsor!  Come on - go for it!  Let's see what ya got!


  • Image is "Hope" provided by The Paper Shelter 
  • For the focal image I used a Paper Tole Technique to 3D her head. Printed 2 copies, colored them with Copics, fussy cut and 'paper sculpted' the image.  The layers were both glued & elevated with foam tape to achieve dimension.
  • Sentiment is from a pre-inked stamp set.
  • Inside:
  • Neenah "Classic Crest Solar White" 80# Cover Wt. used for the image.
  • DP used for the background and matting are from Paper House - "The Great Outdoors" from my stash.
  • Blue base card is from stash.

  • Crop-A-Dial Corner Chomper punch used for the "Ticket Stub" corners on the sewn tab.
  • Waxed Linen cord used to sew the tab.
  • Used Duo Glue and Holographic Foil on the star & embellishments in her hair and on her vest. 
  • Distress Ink used to distress all the edges 
  • Images were printed on an Epson WF-3520 printer 
  • Hand colored with Copics: I forgot to photograph the skin colors - they were: E0000, E000, E00, E11 {shown}, & BV20

      Thanks for the comment on my blog. In full disclosure, we are now in a house for several months of the year, and I have my own craft room (not enough space LOL!!). We will travel in the rv for the last time this summer - we are of an age where it is too much of a challenge!
      Several years ago we spent time near Placerville, I am sure - do you have apple festivals in the area? We enjoyed some great products!
