A Flight of Fancy

Firstly I hope I don't flabbergast you, please do me a favour and don't flee(just yet)from this frivolous post!

I've been having fun with the Dragon's Dream Tag it on challenge - F and green.

Oh! Such a fabulous challenge but what to favour as my choice - feline, flowers, something in fawn(!!!)?

I had no fear in falling finally on the feathered favourite 'Squawk' designed by my lovely friend Lindsay Mason!
He's fine and funky and I thought he'd make a fantastic funny tag - don't want anything fuddy-duddy or frumpy for this challenge!

So a frenzy of flinging inks and spray around, the ever familiar stencils, some filling in with stamps, a grunge board alpha soup F, some fussy cutting and some fronds and fibres! Almost finished, my feathered friend needed some firm ground to stand on - some fine lines made by using the edge of a ruler dragged across an ink pad(used here too)didn't look too foolish!

Using Dylusion ink spray - Fresh Lime, 
Distress inks - Peeled Paint, Shabby Shutters, Mowed Lawn, 
Bird and words - Lindsay Mason
I'm linking to Dragon's Dream Tag it on challenge 'F and green'. There's still 'free'(3) days to have a go if you'd like to 

Finally, if you got here and didn't fall at the first post, Farewell and 'Fanks' for looking! Hope I didn't freak you out! Chris
