Soaring wings

The Saturday Workout challenge this week is thread impressions. We had to wrap threads around the background paper and cover with ink and/or glimmer mists. Then remove the threads. The thread I used left a feathery impression which suggested the theme for the card.

I realised that the Simply Skinnies theme this week is air travel, so I've combined the two. The same thread was used as an embellishment, and you can see it was the basis of my colour scheme.

Ros, your background is gorgeous and the addition of the beautiful tree and greenery makes this a wonderful card. What a great quote.

I really love this card. I use quite a lot of that type of fibre but never thought of using it the way you have. It's brilliant and the colours are so seasonal.
