Ruby's Rainbow Challenge: Things with Wings
Good morning! It's time for another fun challenge from Ruby's Rainbow; Lesley has chosen "things with wings". How fun is that?! Wings made me think of the Stampendous Calendar Chicks.... Love them! They were probably the first stamps that I "collected"...I'm always excited to bring them out and ink them up! When I looked through the challenges, I found a fun sketch and decided to combine it with some distressing and go for a shabby chic look.
The image is colored with pencils and the hats are accented with a bit of subtle glitter (shoot...can't see it in the picture). I distressed my DP and embellished my card with twill, a felt rose/leaves and some Swarovski flatbacks.
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Sakura Black Gel Pen
Paper: PTI Stamper's Select, SU! Crushed Curry and Melon Mambo, Simple Stories DP
Embellies: PTI Dark Chocolate Twill, Swarovski Flatback Crystals in "Topaz" and "Smoked Topaz", Martha Stewart Crystal Fine Glitter
Extras: Prismas/Crayolas/Goo Gone, Spellbinders Nestabilities, Felt, MFT Die-namics Rolled Rose Die and Upsy Daisy Die (leaves), The Paper Studio Sticky Doos
I hope you will head on over and check out the DT's "things with wings"...I'd love to see your take too!
