Spread Your Wings.........and Fly Away


Morning Peeps, another scheduled post whilst I'm on eye rest (added note to say all went well and I'm resting it just as advised), it's Saturday and time for a new challenge at Allsorts where our host is Ellie and she would like us to create something based on a song title. This weeks lucky winner will receive two lovely dies from Tattered Lace. Further down you will also find my creations from my post over at the Chocolate Baroque blog.

My song title is "Spread Your Wings"......"and fly away" written by John Deacon of Queen and featured on their News of the World album, it's one of Queens lesser known songs but one we saw performed live on stage with Freddie resplendent in lack leather trousers, braces and bare chested...........and how wonderful was his voice.

It's another Chocolate Baroque Hochada creation, using just one colour of Versafine Claire ink to create the contrast with black. I used elements of stamps from Butterfly Poppy Collage and Punky Romance stamped onto the page of a Charity Shop poetry book, then using one of the Baroque Heart Trading Hearts, stamped the pretty floral image from A Heart Full of Love, coloured in and added wings from Time Travel.

Hope you all have a good weekend.

Sono molto contenta che l'operazione agli occhi sia andata bene!! :) Per favore, riposa e non sforzare la vista al pc almeno per un po' di tempo...
Tutte le tue card sono bellissime, ma sono davvero innamorata di due in particolare: la prima nei toni del verde, con il grande cuore alato e la pagina di libro, ispirata dalla canzone dei Queen... WOW!! Incredibile pezzo d'arte, così pieno di vita e di forza!! E anche dolcissimo!!
E poi la tua card scenica con il lago, gli alberi e l'uccellino.... Che pace, che delicatezza in questa scena! Sembra di sentire i suoni della natura... Vorrei essere là...!! :) I colori sono stupendi e hai creato un magnifico riflesso nell'acqua. L'uccellino in primo piano è perfetto per catturare l'attenzione e far scorrere lo sguardo! Sei un'artista straordinaria.
Un grande abbraccio, rilassati e non avere fretta di tornare on line!!

Well Brenda every card is gorgeous, I saw your scene on the CB facebook page, stunning. I need you to give me a lesson on how to do water, still so much to learn. Great song inspired piece, great colour too.
Happy crafting

So pleased to hear that all went well Brenda and that you are being a good girl!! Love your homage to John Deacon and the lesser known Queen music, we have all the Queen vinyl in our treasured collection. Sadly we never managed to see them in the flesh. Such a lovely collection of cards as always xx
