If I only had wings ......


Happy Saturday everyone.......... a flighty card 'in the round' here from me.  It meets the April challenge for Happy Little Stampers - Mixed Media whose subject is 'Wings'. In fact there are exactly 30 wings on this !




I started with a 5.5 x 5.5 inch white card base and cut a matt slightly smaller than the card in textured black card and matted this onto the front.  I then took some printed paper with a crossover pattern and cut another matt slightly smaller and edged this with Memento yellow dye ink before applying to the card.





I cut another diecut circle of the same black card through the Sizzix Bigshot.  I used a circular birthday stamp and then first stamped with Versamark ink added some opaque white embossing powder and heat embossed with the heat gun.  Once cool this was applied centrally on the card raised on foam pads.




I then used Dylusions acrylic paints applied by brush on another piece of white card and once dry used a Martha Stewart butterfly punch to punch out a number of butterflies.  These were then shaped and stuck around the raised circle as shown.




Final finishing touch was to adhere some purple clear dots in a random fashion onto the background.

This also fits the bill for the 'That's Crafty Blog' fortnightly challenge whose title is 'All things Bright and Beautiful'.
