Today is Wednesday and the weather is still SUNNY. The wind however is still cold, so you cannot have everything. Still enjoying our break at Belton Woods Hotel. Had a little jaunt into Lincoln yesterday to see the swans...saw ONE! Caitlins friend is at Lincoln University and keeps saying how many swans there are, so do they take them in during the university vacations?
As I have mentioned Caitlin will be 18 this year (scary thought) and of course many of her friends will join her, although some of her Top Hat (weekend stage school) friends are already 18. Todays offering is the card I did for the friend at Lincoln University. Like most of Caitlins group she is a thespian and likes things a little over the top so...
I love the sentiment on this as at 18 it is very appropriate 'Life gives you wings, learn to fly'. the back ground is made with distress inks and overstamped with mushrooms and grasses from Indigo Blu. The head belongs to the birthday girl and was mounted on a small spring so she can nod to everyone. The wings and crown are from the Tim Holtz die fanciful flight - I think.
A bit of steampunk never goes amiss so the stop for the easel card is decorated with cogs and gears. The colour scheme is one of my favourites, I love pink and blue but not the pastel kind but strong vibrant colours like picked raspberry and peacock feathers.
