Things That Fly

This is in homage to my son Ross and my visit to Taos. The mountain range is the Sangre de Christo, the blood of Christ and some evenings it is the vision of "purple mountains majesty".It's my entry in the Created by Hand Challenge 'Things that Fly"
I used the stamp positioner to alter the Quitefire stamp, I write you letters
and heat embossed with Ranger superfine powder.
The quote brought an image to my mind of words flying to their intended recipient.
Shadow images were versamark stamped and brought out with pan pastels. I had to put the eagle in there with the Olympics on my mind.
shout out to Shaun White and his big air.
My son is teaching snowboarding in Taos-fortunately I can only see him on the end of his runs- no half pipe watching for this proud Mom!
I also used my stardust pens for some glitter-hard to see.
Check out the challenge blog for other links.
thanks in advance for all your comments, suggestions and kind words.

  3. Yay mom! I finally looked at your art blog. I like this little one, the colors really pull it together, however for my aesthetic eye it is a little too crowded. I imagine that must be hard with such a small space to work with, and so many beautiful stamps.
