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.

Image: Stampendous
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!

I am also entering this card in the following challenges:
