I Believe I Can Fly

It's the fabulous Arwen's first time to be hostess over at Stampotique and for her challenge she has chosen wings. Here's what she says.

Wings have something mystical for me. Angels have wings, fairies, my favorite animal: the bat :) Love and positive feelings give wings. Today I would like to see what gives you wings. I am very curious about your creations.

Here's my MDF tag.Lots of layers of paint, pastels and stamping on this one which equals one very happy bunny making it.

I started by painting my tag very roughly with Silks paints.
Next came lots of stencilling and stamping. I've used 
Vintage Script (of course, don't I always)
Journey Collage - another favourite
Hutching's - it's a favourites day out lol

Next came more stencilling with my uber sparkly metalic PanPastel's through a leaf stencil. The copper and golds are to die for.
Jo's Great Moon was stamped onto book paper and Stella was coloured with Prisma pencils.
Her wings are from Big Bee and have been stamped onto vellum.
The quote is part of World All Her Own
Here it all is again with her wings on straight lol.
Janet's Trees and Bushes have been painted and layered.
This was such fun to make, thanks very much Arwen. I hope you will join in with our wings theme and remember NO DIGI's :-)

I'm also entering this into the PanPastel challenge which is Anything Goes, and
Hope you like it, and thanks very much for looking xx
