Wind beneath my wings

The sun is shining, , and it is a long weekend, and I am supposed to be tidying my shed...but I got waylaid by this piece calling out to me to be made, and it fitted perfectly with Hels's Sunday Stamper challenge which is to include wings!
I took one of the Idea-ology Fractured dolls, and wondered if I could drill a hole in the top of it..oh yes, but be careful, as they are resin, and you should wear a mask to do it! Add a bag full of blue alcohol ink, shake it in it, and dry. I stamped on some white tissue paper one of the Calligraphy mats and glued it onto the doll. My magically wonderful hot glue gun, was perfect for attaching the Ideaology wings, and my Angel of the North was finished.. perfect for a necklace or a keyring or just a charm!

Thank you Hels for the challenge...
Have a very Happy Easter day!

Those things freak me out, but I like the idea! Apparently they will change blue no matter what alcohol ink you use - not that I've tried!
