Musical Wings

Saturday evening here in Australia and it is lovely to be crafting after a busy day in the yard - I will know I am alive tomorrow! LOL!  But in the meantime I have a card to share with you....

Using the Spellbinders Fleur de Lis Rectangles Nestabilities - I love the ornate look of this Die, it can be pretty of grungy or anything inbetween!  I have also used the Spellbinders Classic Rectangles both Dies have been cut using the Spellbinders Grand Calibur®

I have used some retired Layers of Color sets to create this card - I cannot resist them, they are divine.  I am excited to see the announcement over at Penny Black that both Laura and Nina are now designing for them - it is WIN:WIN for us!

The butterfly has been stamped with Tsukineko Onyx Black Versafine and coloured with Prismacolor Pencils and Odourless Mineral Spirits.  Some colour has been added to the background image using the Prismacolor Pencils as well.  The wings have been popped up with foam dots.  I have finished off by pleating some paptterned paper and adding some braid from my stash.

This card is for the following challenges:

Fussy and Fancy - Punches / Dies
