Things with Wings

That is the name of the very first challenge at a brand new blog called Simon Says Stamp and Show.   And this also fits for the other Simon Says Stamps Challenge, to use blue in our creation!   Here is my submission:


I was in the mood to get inky, so I stamped the grass silhouette in Versamark, embossed in clear, and then sponged the background in scattered straw, wild honey, and a touch of vintage photo on the edges and the bottom.  I used my nesties labels eight to cut out my shape.  Then I printed out 3 sizes of one of the Flutterbies digital butterflies, and sponged them in a combination of tumbled glass and broken china.  Some twine was wrapped around the label to hold my sentiment, and then it was glued to a Cerulean card.  The butterflies were glued only along their bodies in order to make them flutter. 

Supplies: white cardstock, Hero Arts S5316 Silhouette Grass, CL129 Anytime Messages, digital butterflies, scattered straw, wild honey, vintage photo, tumbled glass and broken china distress inks, Cerulean hero hues card, twine
