Wings

This theme for this months tag swap is 'WINGS'. I love making my own backgrounds and that is exactly what I did for this tag. I like the satisfaction I get from taking a plain piece of paper and turning it into something quite nice.


This background I made by firstly screwing the paper up into a tight ball then added inks in different shades of green, gold and white, I then added some embossing powder, overstamped with a word stamp of unknown origin. I added some metalic rub-on cream all over the piece, it basically just held on the peaks of the creases.


The letters are from Basic Grey, they were covered in some basic Grey paper, and then messed up with embossing powder and the rub on creams.
