IBelieve I Can Fly is the New Challenge at TioT

Hello, it's time to tell you a out the new challenge at Try it on Tuesday, which this fortnight is  I Believe I Can Fly.   
I've used an old stamp which  I think is from  Lost Coast Designs,  along with the sentiment from another stamp.  My butterfly lady was stamped with Potting soil Archival, I stamped her butterfly again and coloured it with Peacock feathers Distress ink and a touch of Tarnished Brass stain and covered it in Glossy Accents.  For the base layer, I used DecoArt Crackle paste through a flourish stencil and when it was dry I sprayed with Antique Linen and Vintage Photos Distress sprays.  I stamped the newsprint and script with Potting soil and along with the vintage music sheet, they were all distressed using VP.  For a pop of colour I added little butterflies which were coloured with Peacock feathers and again coated with GA.
The rest of the team have some wonderful and very varied inspiration for you, so please pop over here, where you will also find all the details.
 I am entering this at:
  Stamping Sensations - Add a Creature (Butterflies)

Thanks for visiting today, I do appreciate it.
