"Wings" Tag Challenge

The Tag Your It challenge for this week is wings and I have lots of wings, fairy wings, angel wings, butterfly wings, ladybird wings, pixie wings etc etc. What a dilemma! Eventually I settled on this oliver twitter stamp fom graphicus because it went so well with the text. The House stamps are Stampin up and all have been cloured with prismacolour and sansodor. The sky is inked with Adirondak pool, cloudy blue and sunshine yellow.

Have been walking today on the banks of a reservoir near Harrogate and sat for a peaceful moment watching blue tits, mallard, coot and greylag geese to mention but a few of the birds resplendant in their mating colours, so birds had to bethe wings in my tag. There is something so reassuring about seeing the continuation of the cycles in nature and the beginning of the spring rituals in the drive for all species to survive. I look at the tiniest of birds and can't imagine how they have made it through the chill of the winter but made it they have, and it fills me with determination to make it through and enjoy the rest of the year. So this year is going to be my year to fly! Thanks for the challenge all at Tag you're it, a lovely theme for the start of spring
