Take Flight - 6th Chunky Book Page

Hi! Here is the 6th page for the chunky book page swap organised by Heather.
My brain said "Fly me to the Moon" and then I got another angle going through my brain about Dr Dolittle (the Rex Harrison film version) and how he rode the Giant Lunar Moth.........
Well I could not replicate the Dr Dolittle part so I decided Alice could be holding on for dear life instead!! LOL

The background was a googled image of an old book stuck to the base then well inked with embossing ink straight from the pad and Distress embossed with antique linen
......I stamped a T!m script stamp in crimson Archival onto grungepaper and overstamped the butterflies/moths! (Home Impressions) in black/sepia and coffee Archival
.......cut out and tattered around the edges a bit then decided they needed a bit of something else and added some distress stickles rock candy
.......Alice (Cherry Pie) coloured with DI's faded jeans/scattered straw/wild honey/aged mahogany/tattered rose and cut out
.........T!m pin holds the word fragment "fly" (Papermania) and black wire wrapped round a cocktail stick to make the feelers whisper this bit! The letters for the word moon are...wait for it....peel off stickers!!
.....and you know what I don't care!
.......I liked them as they have a rough texture like the distress emboss powder!
.....that's 6 down and 3 to go........oooh can I make it?

As the whole underlying theme of this swap was to be inspired by all things T!m...I'm entering this in the Simon Says Stamp and Show this week
Thanks for looking and happy stamping
xoxo Sioux
