Inkspirational Challenge - Flight


This week's challenge at Inkspirational  is a word prompt and the word is - 'flight'.

I used a photo of a Spitfire plane, and added the words- the first and last lines from the poem 'High Flight' by John Magee. The poet died very young and these words were inscribed on his gravestone.

The stamps I used were a grid by Kaisercraft and numbers by 7 gypsies and I added metal cogs, a metal tag and a mini playing card.

Please do visit us at Inkspirational to see the different ways our DT has interpreted this challenge and to see our Guest Designer, Cornelia. We'd love you to join in.

I'd like to enter:

A most innovative take on "flight" with the photo and the lines from "High Flight." I've shared that poem often with students; one of my favourites! Love this!
