Wings Are Made To Fly

I got to play over the weekend, so as my current alarm tone is the Glee versions of
"Wings" the line "Wings are made to fly" has been stuck in my head (probably
because my alarm goes off and snoozes at least 3-5 times in the morning!) and over the
past week this design came to mind. 

Using Paperbabes stencils & face stamps, I drew out my girls face and from there drew
the wings which I then outlined both in pen. 
Moving onto colouring in, I used Tim Holtz distress paints in the following colours;
Milled Lavender
Shaded Lilac
Dusty Concord
Seeded Preserves
Victoria Velvert
Tattered Rose
Walnut Stain

I built up the wings colour with all the different purples, generally using my fingers to blend in.
Until I was happy, then I added texture with stencils and distress inks in Peacock Feathers
and Shaded Lilac

Once happy with the face I moved onto the background, where i blended Distress Paints
Peacock Feathers, Stormy Sky and Worn Lip Stick. Then using more stencils,
I added the butterflies and patterns (don't quite know what to call them!)

The final touches was stamping the title using an indigo blu alphabet stamp in Memento ink pad
Rich Cocoa and then a few strips of washi tape which I inked slightly with Dusty Concord.
