Wings of Grace

This is for today's SKETCH CHALLENGE. That's right, only 1 challenge on this one. I wanted it to be special because a wonderful cyber friend through this site sent me this beautiful Old World Map stamp from Rubbernecker as a gift along with many other surprises in a Happy Mail package I received last night. Stampcrazzy aka Kelly won a $100 by placing an order with Rubbernecker and was so sweet to share with me since I was her inspiration for the purchase. Thanks again Kelly. I had to get it dirty ASAP and today's sketch was perfect but I could not incorporate pumpkin pie anywhere so I elected to go with other colors. The OWM image is stamped in brilliant blue, distressed w/close to cocoa then crumpled,straightened and attached to a matt of blue cs. Image also stamped in bb and distressed edges, matted on blue cs and popped up. I used burgandy ribbon with hemp for layer 3. Layer 1 was stamped w/close to cocoa using cheesecloth and matted on burgandy cs. Hope you like it and hope Kelly really likes it. Thanks again Kelly.
