Winged Things at Crafty Cardmakers

Evening Everyone,
Sorry, as usual I'm a little late to the party, but they do say better late than never, so I hope that you will forgive me.
Today sees the launch of a new challenge over at Crafty Cardmakers where our Host Marie would like to see Winged Things. Let your imagination run wild, it could be a bird, an angel, an insect and you can use stamps, die cuts, digital images in fact anything as long as it has wings.
We are sponsored for this challenge by The Stampman (and Lady of course!) who are offering the winner a £10 voucher for their store.
We are also sponsored by Di's Digi Downloads with a $10 prize for her store.
This card was made using a lovely clear stamp set which is by Inkadinkadoo, I think. The greeting is by Woodware. 
The central panel has been made using Instant coffee, Pearlex and cling film
 I have added some stamped images and a bit of Frantage Embossing Enamel.
The background to the card is Kraft coloured card which I have stamped onto in the same manner using the same combination of stamps and inks.
I will actually be teaching this technique at Davina's on the evening of the 19th September.
I added some ribbon and some fussy cut Dragonflies which have been shaped and attached using Silicon.
Why not check out what the rest of the team have come up with. Please try and leave a comment, they are always much appreciated and I do try and return the visit.
Happy Crafting.

  4. This is gorgeous, Kim. I love the soft colours you've used, and how they're brought to life by that vibrant blue.

  5. Hi, Kim! This is GORGEOUS!!! LOVE the pop in the bright blue amongst all the neutrals! HUGS and hope all is going well for you!!! :)
