Challenge 3: Things with wings

Hello and welcome to our 3rd challenge! Thankyou for taking part last week. This week's challenge is - 'Things with wings' Think butterflies, birds, insects, angels, fairies - anything you like with wings!! The design team's work is below. If you dont have a blog, please email your creations to:

See you next week!

Kate, Lesley & Wendy


I inked 4 pieces of 2" square stampboard with Faded Jeans and Pine Needles Distress Inks, and spritzed them with a Forest Green Glimmer Mist. Then I stamped and embossed the butterflies and angels, and added some bindis and adhesive gems to embellish. For the background I took a piece of mountboard and used the same colours of inks and glimmer mist and randomly stamped over it.


I started by water colouring my stamping bella stamp (topiarybella). I then drew some freehand butterflies and coloured them in with water colours. The pink paper I used was Cherry Arte Kitty Lou -Becca Boo. I then drew a freehand oval frame and put my stamp bella in the middle. I also drew a freehand tag and printed the words 'Your Fab'. I then embellished the card with some lovely green spotted ribbon. I finished off with lots of pink glitter! I think this will definitely have to be my mum's mother's day card this coming Sunday!


I decided to use one of my Faerie Poppet stamps for this week's challenge and she is stamped in Onyx Black Versafine ink and clear embossed. The image was coloured using Copic Marker Pens. I have smudged up the edges with ink and matted her onto a contrasting layer. Mounted with 3D foam pads over a card base that also has a torn strip of white card, embossed with one of the new Cuttlebug embossing folders. A tag, embossed with the same folder and a couple of flowers, have been added for embellishment.

stampingbalou said...

Dear Ladies,

I really would like to comment all of your creations but unfortunately there are two problems:

1) the server does not work (and could not be acutalized...)

2) lacking of the word verification

I will try it tomorrow evening again, so sorry...

Yours, Heike ;o)
