Wings of Hope

'Wings of Hope'

I've been having a lovely time working with these gorgeous Designs Galore images found in my May DT pack from THE STAMPING QUEEN.

The chipboard pieces 'Wings & Hearts' are by Collections. The heart was covered with a deep blush coloured paper and then coated with a layer of Distress crackle paint (old paper). Each wing was painted with a layer of warm white paint with a small torn piece of vintage paper affixed in the wet paint. A layer of Distress crackle paint (black soot) was then added to each wing.

Here's a different way to use 'Flourish' by Paperbag Studios. I used charcoal ink to soften the colour and yes, it was tricky trimming around the image, but well worth the effort.

The Stamping Queen supplies: Designs Galore VB015, 'Flourish' by Paperbag Studios, 'Hope will give you wings' by Catslife Press, 'Wings & Hearts' chipboard by Collections, Pearls (latte), Vintage Wallpaper and Vintage Paper by Collections

My Stash: Black card, tulle, flowers

I'd like to dedicate this piece to a very brave woman, Rachel, who in the midst of great suffering has reminded me of the importance of faith, hope and love. I'm grateful that I've had the priviledge to hear her life story, which I'm sure has challenged many to take seriously the hope that is found in Christ alone. To God be the glory.
