Victorine Originals Challenge #9 ~ Wings

Happy Friday! Today is the start of a new challenge at the Victorine Originals blog with the theme of "Wings". Here is what I created for inspiration!
 I started by creating the background for the bird cages with Canson XL Watercolor paper and used Distress Inks in Shaded Lilac, Mustard Seed, and Worn Lipstick with my aqua brush to watercolor.  I waited for that to dry then stamped the Victorine Originals Bird Cages stamp using Versafine Onyx Black ink and my stamp tool.  I carefully trimmed the stamped image apart and layered it on black cardstock, then adhered it to my card base.
 The sentiment is from the V.O. Elegant Sayings stamp set.  The enamel dots are from GMD Sunset colors.
Here is the wonderful inspiration board for the current challenge:
Head on over to the Victorine Originals blog and check out their challenge post. You have two weeks to enter your project/s that follow the above theme and/or color scheme. They do not have to use Victorine Originals stamps on them. We can't wait to see what you create!

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!
