Spread Your Wings

     I've always had a fascination with mythology and Pegasus is one of my favorite creatures.  I have a dear friend who shares that particular love so I made this birthday card just for her.  The image is from Fabrika Fantasy and is a new one for me.

     This time I colored the image with chalks and I framed it with the outer piece left over from a die cut (Spellbinders die)  I used on another project.   The purple paper was a great match for this lavender image, done by mixing blue and pink chalks.  It's amazing what one can do simply by saving the scraps and negatives of other die cuts.  I mounted that whole piece onto a card base and then added the bling and the one flower.

This is stunning Connie, I too love mythology and love Pegasus. The way you have coloured Pegasus is fabulous which makes him really pop on the card.

Gorgeous image, love the pretty die frame around it, and the sentiment.

I love mythology too. My favourite reads as a child was Arabian Nights and I was lucky to live in Arabia and experience the feelings of the desert, and Greek mythology, but sadly I have never been to Greece.

Okay, every time I come to your blog I mean to tell you that those kitties are adorable and the one on the top just melts my heart with those eyes. As to your card, at first I thought your Pegasus was a sticker or pre printed image. Beyond impressed with your chalking skills! Love the frame as it truly highlights your image and happy to read I am not the only one who saves those negatives from my dies :} Great card and thank you for sharing with us on the PIP challenge blog. Always look forward to your entries.

I love your card but I'm a big fan of the pegasus and have stickers from when I was a teenager that I refuse to let my daughter use or use myself. That's a long, long time ago too.:) Thank you for sharing from all of us at Chalk N Stock.
