Flying By

Hello, I'm sharing another card for our current challenge at Try it on Tuesday, where the theme this fortnight is 'Time Flies' and as usual, it's up to you how you interpret the theme.

My second make for this challenge is more feminine, and I've used the Tim Holtz paper dolls again.
I've just bought the new Sizzix Organic die and after cutting I glued it to a piece of textured card, painted it with a mix of blue and grey.  When dry, it was inked over with Chipped Sapphire DI and the pattern highlighted with gesso, applied with my finger.  This frame has been in my stash since forever, so I sprayed it with Chipped Sapphire stain, and the sentiment, a freebie, was heat embossed with Silver EP.
The base card was dipped in mix of Frayed Burlap, Broken China and Peacock feathers Oxide inks and then stamped with script, in Watering Can Archival.  It looked a little bare, so I added some wildflowers.
You still have another week to join in and you can find all the details here.

We're forecast snow today, so after some morning shopping I'll be staying nice and warm in the craft room.
Have a great day whatever you're doing.
Avril xx

A beautiful card Avril, the die cuts are lovely. The touch of gesso really showed the details in the background, super words as well.
