CD Sunday - Wonderful Wings (Pegasus)

Good Morning everyone.  Well!  I chose a tough theme last week but gosh what a super response from you all. Thank you all for those wonderful creations and for not leaving me with egg on my face.  I will study them all very carefully and then let Jenny know my Top 3.
Tis Friday evening and I am doing a timed post as on Saturday I am off down to the New Forest to the 1st of the year parchment workshops with Judith Maslen. A friend is kindly taking me as I am still not sure about driving any further than locally.  I am now doing physio and of course that stirs it all up.

On to our theme this week - chosen by Jenny.  I chose to do  a parchment project this time and here it is

Pegasus is a copyright free clip art I found in Google images and I have the artists permission to use it. I printed the image on 140gsm  parchment and then placed it carefully inside an oval patterned Multi  grid to  emboss the borders.  I then embossed the mane and tail and two of the legs and some of the wing segments.  The rest I embossed or pricked with a grid pattern.  The sentiment was traced from a Microsoft Word font and the whole then stitched to  the backing card with glass beads and then  a little sprinkle of Glamour Dust was added to finish.
The background is blue crackle from an Ooh La La CD.

Postscript:  We had a wonderful Workshop - as always - but the weather was horrendous.  I am so grateful to my friend Charmaine for doing the driving.  In some places you couldn't see your hand in front of your face for the rain. It was nice to meet Jacqui at long last.  Her first time working on embossing was awesome.

I hope you find this theme much easier and  look forward to visiting many Blogs.  Please drop me a line when you visit.  It is always nice to know you have called.
