Wings and Things...

Things and Wings
is the new challenge at Vintage Stamping Challenges
this month!

We had a great response to our last challenge with some
awesome I hope you come along and play again.
remember you can use any stamps that you like...
in any style that you like!

My card this time around is me having fun with ink!!!
 I decided to use orange and burgundy colours again...
because I just love this colour combination.
Gum leaves aren't usually a burgundy and orange
 but I wanted something dramatic...not wish-washy.
They have been lifted with a little magic mount.
The birds were bleached out...and I quite liked 
the mottled effect so I left them as they were...
just adding a little stickles.

This time I remembered to take a picture of the background.
I had so much fun just mucking around with ink,
layering up some stamping and stencilling in different colours
and splattering a little bleach.
Then came the moment when I realised that I had over done it
so I added some more ink

The bird stamp from Flonzcraft can be found here.

I hope you take the time to pop over to VSC
and check out the amazing talent and ideas
from the team...and leave a little love.
Flonzcraft is offering a generous $20 voucher for the winner,
he offers an occassional spot prize and
there is always a top 3!


I would like to enter this into the following challenges...
