DV #223 Things With Wings

Good Morning and Happy Easter.

Today’s challenge from Dream Valley, sponsored by Morgan’s Artworld, is Things With Wings.

I have used one of the sponsor’s images called simply digistamp 15. I printed her onto Elegance cardstock and coloured her with my polychromos pencils. The wings and bird in her hair were glittered with glamour dust.

The backing paper is very old from Elusive Images, now Chocolate Baroque! The Happy Birthday sentiment is from Crafters Companion’s new Edge’able dies.

I cut the sentiment piece twice, and then having added a layer beneath the flap so that they would stay in place, I paper pieced the white letters back into the holes that the die leaves, when it’s cut.

In the picture above I have pushed the flap with the sentiment on down flat, but actually it stands proud like the picture below so you can see more of the gorgeous backing paper.

The flowers are again really old, from my stash, and by Prima, and the ferns are cut with a MS punch from the same backing paper.

The image was cut out with Julie Hickey’s rectangle frame dies, including the scalloped black mat and the tiny frame diecut.

Here is a close up of glittered areas.
