The theme is "birds".
This sweet little girl image reminds me of the illustrations in my kids' nursery rhyme books. I confess that when it comes to children's books, I check the artwork first. If the pictures aren't captivating, the book doesn't come home with me. Here I've used only a portion of the stamp. You can see the entire image here.
A rigid iron fence anchors this miniature scene, but the little girl's thoughts are soaring to the sky.
I began by stamping the background (find it here) in pale blue. Next came the ironwork border, which I colored with metallic gold Prismacolors.
The swallows, and the dove were stamped directly over the background. I stamped and colored just a portion of the little girl, then used a punch to cut out a small circle. I distressed the circumference of the circle with blank ink before gluing it in place.
To finish the piece, I stamped the word "fly" using one of my most versatile alphas, LL762 Printer's Lower Case from Hero Arts. (This alpha is available elsewhere, too.)
Stamps Used: StampFrancisco (background), Beeswax (girl), Lost Coast Designs (grid iron border), Picture Show (swallows, dove).
