Fly Away Love #1345 ~ a Sandra Caldwell New Release

Hi everyone! It's Friday and that means new release day at Sandra Caldwell's Etsy shop, Babycakes Digis and Designs. The one I have chosen to play with is called Fly Away Love 1345. I just love her wonderful hat and those flying pigtails. Her sweet face makes me smile :)

I coloured FAL up with a mix of Prismacolor and Polychromos pencils. Metallic gel pen topped with Glossy Accents was added to her hat pin and Icicle Stickles to the heart's wings. Fal was then fussy cut leaving my usual white border and then matted with black and trimmed out again. Foam tape was added to the back to pop her up. The chocolate bar image which she is resting her hand on was clip art from another Etsy shop.

The background, a 6 x 8 inch rectangle of mixed media paper, was printed with my Gel Press plate using two shades of blue Liquitex acrylic paint and then removing some with a plastic canvas circle shape. Forget-Me-Not Archival ink was used to apply Carabelle Studio Checkerboard stamp in a few places. The stitching stmp is from Viva Las Vegas and was applied with Jet Black Archival ink. The border along the top of the page was created with the same ink and Stampotique Originals Hanging Hearts stamp. Parts of the hearts were coloured in with coloured pencils and pens.

To add a little more texture and break up some of the more solid painty areas, Texture Paste was scraped through TCW Tiny Circles stencil in a few areas and allowed to dry thoroughly. The sentiment was printed on white card stock and then cut into individual words which were then matted with black. Each word was adhered to the background using Scor tape. The outside edges of the background were inked with Black Big Brush pen before the page was matted with black card stock to serve as a frame.

Thanks for popping by today. FAL and I appreciate that. To see the other wonderful new releases by Sandra and also the awesome DT makes with them, be sure and pop by the Sandra Caldwell Stamp Fans Facebook group where they will be posted throughout the day. You can also stop over to Sandra's Etsy shop, Babycakes Digis and Designs, to see not only these newbies but also all of the other wonderful images in her shop. There's something for everyone and every occasion.

Life is good; so is art.
