If birds can glide...

Hello, my dear stamping friends!

After a long list of scrapbooking projects, I decided to make a small Mixed Media one and I really like the final result.

It's an arch (made with Tando Creative premade chipboard arch), full of  painting and stamping goodies.

I made some big leaves with Tando mask and molding paste, then stamped some Trailing Large Butterflies with white ink and heat embossed them with white powder.  

The arch was randomly covered with a variety of Tim Holtz distress stains.
The birds were hand cut from 7 Gypsies paper  and glued with Scrap Happy glue over the paste.
Then I stamped an Right Oak Branch and Birds with black permanent ink.
The wire was handmade and glued over the piece.
The great sentiment  from Steampunk set was stamped and adhered on top.
The last touch was some sequin mesh- adhered using Scrap Happy glue  with ease over the paint.
