LOC Wild Wings

Don't you love weekends - we are having a HOT one here but not too hot especially when you have AIR CONDITIONING!!  It has been a couple of days since I have posted something - but that is not because I haven't been busy - I have, I am preparing for teaching at the local Craft Shop one night a month and also weekly at the Art Center - I will give you a little look at those cards when they are finished...in the meantime.... 

I have created for creating sake and this is what I came up with!  The colours are very 'earthy' and I am really loving the combination.  I have used the Layers of Color Wild Grass Frame cling art stamp - don't you just LOVE it!!!   It is stamped with Distressing  Embossing Powder - this is my first time using it and I love the effect but have to perfect my technique! 

The butterfly is from the Flutterescent art stamp set and has been sponged with Distressing Ink in Walnut Stain and had some light chalking in purple, to add a hint of colour, along with Kindy Glitz - you just have to have the shimmer on these fabulous wings!!

This card is for the following Challenges:
Sisterhood of Crafters - Anything Goes
My Time to Craft - Embossing
Stamps R Us - Animals
Gingerloft - Things that Fly
Fuzzy Wuzzy - Animal, Anything Goes
Phindy's Place - Lace and Pearls
