Our challenge at Crafty Cardmakers this time is Wings. We would like to see your projects with wings, birds, insects, planes, fairies… basically anything as long as it has wings.
I’ve created a tag using distress inks in Picked Raspberry, Squeezed Lemonade, Peacock Feathers, Cracked Pistachio and Dusty Concord. I then used a Memory Box stencil to create the sunrays with texture paste which I covered with Stampendous Stardust embossing powder and heat set. This has the weird effect of bubbling the texture paste slightly whilst the embossing powder melts.
My sentiment is from Paper Artsy, and the ‘Crowned Bunnies’, which I reckon are hares because of the length of their ears, are from Crafty Individuals. I coloured them with Maya Gold paint, and finally added wings diecut with a Spellbinder die. The little queen/crown charm was from my stash.
The sentiment speaks to me as I suffer with anxiety and would love to be brave and fear nothing. I reckon if you had wings you could just fly away so no situation would be too worrisome as you could just leave it far beneath you.
I have included the photo below because in the one above you cannot see the shimmer of the Maya Gold paint on the bunnies, and the charm was in the shade.
