OSAAT #67 - Things With Wings



Over at OSAAT we have a new challenge today which is to feature 'Things With Wings'. This can be birds, fairies butterflies or other insects, as long as they have wings they're in!!

We have a fabulous prize for one lucky winner which is a £10 gift voucher for Joanna Sheen.


If you don't already subscribe to the Stitchy Bear Newsletter I would suggest that you sign up as there are some fabulous images given away as freebies and you will always be kept up to date with the latest image news.

In the spotlight this week is Jess from Floppy Latte Designs. She has some amazing images and gorgeous detailed silhouettes.

Pop over to the store and make sure you sign up for it. While you are there don't forget that for the Month of June we have a new store collab with the theme of 4th July and Picnics which is free with a $10 purchase.


For my card I was able to work with a gorgeous image by Priyanka at Gillu's Gallery called Waiting For You part 2. I have to confess I am not usually a fairy person but this one is beautiful. I love how delicate the design is and that you can see part of the face in profile with the cute eyelashes.

I coloured the image with Promarkers in soft blues and greens as I wanted to keep it delicate. I have added Glamour Dust glitter to the wings for a bit of sparkle. The layout of the card is from a sketch at Tuesday Trio challenge.

Materials Used in this card are as follows:-
Card Size - 6" Square with scalloped edges
Papers - Up Up & Away collection by First Edition (Dovecraft)
Image - Waiting For You Part 2 - Gillu's Gallery
Tools - Nestabilities
Embellishments - Ribbon, lace, bakers twine, tag, pearls, gem, handmade flowers, glitter
Techniques - Distressing with scissors and ink pad

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges (in Alphabetical Order):-
