About Me

My photo
I'm a part-time primary school teacher, who started papercrafting 8 years ago, when I had a fancy to make my own Christmas cards. Since then, I have tried all sorts of techniques and styles - and I kind of like them all. So my work is very varied, which keeps me interested - and my crafty stash growing!! As well as cards, I love working with boxes and canvases - and I'm always seeking inspiration for new projects.

CCM #100 - Winged Things

Welcome to our latest challenge - Winged Things. Your 'winged thing' needs to be the main focus of the project - NOT a little butterfly charm, or bee in the corner of an image. Our sponsors are Crafts and Me with the choice of three digis, and Woodware who offer £12.00 to spend on-line or in-store at one of their stockists.

So, for my card I chose 'Whooo Loves Ya Baby' digi stamp from Scrapping Memories. Having printed the image on Elegance card,  I coloured it using Promarkers:
Bird house/Letters/Hearts - Frosted Jade, Island Lagoon, Marine, Solstice Blue
Owl - Grey Squirrel, Fired Wood, Umber, Eggnog. Daffodil Bloom
Ground - Grey Squirrel, Frosted Leaves

The image was cut with a Spellbinders scalloped rectangle die, embossed and inked with Pumice Stone and Peacock Feathers DI's.

For the mats and layers I have used pale blue Bazzill, and DCWV self-adhesive brown and grey card. The teal blue and cream are from Papermill. I added a strip of Washi tape (from The Range) and flat-backed pearls to finish it off.

Please make sure that your winged thing is the focal image of your project - pop over to Crafty Cardmakers for more inspiration.
