Sweet Stampin' ~ Team Wends ~ Things With Wings
Hey there my lovely crafty friends, this week has whizzed by double time. I had a job interview yesterday and I'm crossing all my fingers and toes that I get it! Fits so perfectly with my mummy duties! But let's not talk about work. This week at Sweet Stampin', we're kicking off a new challenge with the sweet theme 'Things with Wings'. Any wings will do, so you may choose dragonflies, butterflies, birds, fairies, angels or how about planes?!! I've gone for a rather predictable but none the less lovely option of a butterfly.
I gave this to my lovely sister-in-law when her grandma passed away. I just feel there is something lovely and appropriate about butterflies at a time like this, especially with that sentiment! I've made very similar before, you can see my previous creations with this design, here.
What differed with this creation, was that I added the white page over the base inked page allowing a border for the pretty ink work to show on the edges to frame the design. I used the same ink technique and the same butterfly die, but I love how the inked edge really framed the design.
The butterfly is adhered just in the middle so the wings are free and can move and be lifted slightly to show the pretty ink work beneath. A very CAS but I think very striking design. I've added touches of glitter to the wings, so that they shine and catch the light when they move.
I hope you'll come and join the fun with us for our 'Things with Wings' challenge. There really is so much scope for interpretation! I can't wait to see what you're inspire to do. Just remember there must be some stamping to be eligible for our Top 3 honours. I'll be back soon with another crafty adventure, in the meantime, head over to the blog to check out what my awesomely talented teamies have been up to with this fab theme. You're sure to leave inspired! Hugs and happy crafting, Wends xoxo
