What if I Fail?

Oh, But My Darling, What if you fly?--Erin Hanson

Hello Everybody!

Isn't that an awesome quote?  Wouldn't it be great if you could relax in knowing that you could fly?  But alas...it's not that easy.

So tonight's tag has part of this quote on it.  I was going to use a Dylusion quote-but somehow this came to mind.


For this tag I started off gluing a piece of book page to the tag and trimming the extra.  Then I sponged on mustard seed distress ink.  Using a Dylusions stencil, I added crackle texture paste that dries white by Wendi Vecchi.


And wait--haha for the paste to dry. Then...


I add distress paint- walnut stain- with my finger to the tag.  I like the way the yellow peaks out.  You can see the crackle.  Woo Hoo!


Then I made the dress form from a Tim Holtz die.  I used a dot embossing folder and then used D.I. wild honey.  I stapled the tulle skirt on and tied a cord around the waist to hide the staples.  Then I found this gold heart and knew it would be perfect.  This picture also shows the crackle very well.  I added white stain in the background to make the wings and dress form pop.

The wings are Fun Stampers Journey stamped on pattern tissue paper.


These are chitchat stickers from Tim Holtz.

I am linking this tag to the following challenges that help inspire this tag:

Thank you for stopping by today!  Until next time my friends...concentrate on flying! :)
