Combining today's technique challenge to stack up the bg (stamps that is), and Bridget's Looking Up challenge in the HYCCT forum.
I started with linen in soft sky, then musical score in turquoise and french flair embossed in detail black ep. A little pink pirouette sponging and some more turquoise finish the bg. The flower was colored with turquoise marker and blender pen. The tag is the teeniest labels 14 nestie. My looking up is of course, the birds.
Thanks for the challenges, ladies! Enjoy the day everyone.

This is fantastic. Love the stamps you put together and the colors are exquisite.

Wow, have you EVER nailed the layered bg stamping with this one, Holly - it's beautiful!! I love the sponging, the gorgeous contrast of the black with the blue, and the sweet little tag of "hope"! Thanks so much for playing along with the "lookin' up" challenge!
