Let Your Dreams Take Flight

Wishing you beautiful moments of creativity as you enjoy a world of colorful imagination where your dreams and heart take flight.



The butterfly from Penny Black’s Free Flight was stamped on white cardstock with Onyx Black VersaFine ink and heat embossed with clear powder.  The design was watercolored using Ink Potion No. 9 as a transfer medium for Grape Jelly, Lilac Posies and Tangelo Memento inks.  An application of Copper Sheer Shimmer Spritz with a paintbrush yields a shimmery effect.  Using Goosebumps Clear Texture Spray as an adhesive, black glitter was attached to adorn the body.

Decorative Tiles

The collage element from Free Flight was stamped on white cardstock with Smokey Gray VersaFine ink.  Two rectangles were trimmed from the image and the edges were sponged with Peanut Brittle, Toffee Crunch and Espresso Truffle Memento inks.  The edges were further enhanced by applying Delicata Golden Glitz ink directly from the pad.

Corner Piece

A section of the decorative border from Puzzle Parts was stamped on white cardstock with Onyx Black VersaFine and heat embossed with clear powder.  Espresso Truffle and Lilac Posies Memento inks added a worn and distressed effect to the piece.

A white flower eyelet offered a wonderful base structure for creating an antique finding.  After hammering the eyelet flat, it was coated with Silver Metallic StazOn directly from the inker bottle.  Once the eyelet was dry, it was then randomly pounced with Stone Gray and Jet Black StazOn ink pads.  A black bead accents the center.

White Card Mat

A bit of texture from an embossing folder adorns the upper left corner with a black string marking the transition between the embossed and un-embossed sections.  The sentiment from Free Flight was stamped in Onyx Black VersaFine and heat embossed with clear powder.

Various thicknesses of dimensional foam were used in assembling the design.

Have a beautiful day,
