Impression Obsession DT Challenge: Things that Fly

The Impression Obsession team's challenge today is to create a project showing something that flies.

Here is one of my CHA samples featuring one of Gary Robertson's new images, Cardinals by Window, with one of my Christmas sentiments, Heavenly Peace. I kept the coloring very simple, using mostly shades of grey and a few minimal pops of color. The scene is colored with Touch Twin Markers.

I added dimension and texture with some white Flower Soft and Martha Stewart glitter.
