STAMPlorations Things with Wings Spring Blog Hop & Linky Party~Week 2

Hello,

I'm back joining Shery and her STAMPlorations team as a guest designer for Week 2 of the fabulous 
STAMPlorations Things with Wings Spring Blog Hop & Linky Party

The event launched last Wednesday and in case you want to catch up, you can do so here. Extra posts take place today and on the following 2 Wednesdays. We will be showcasing spring-themed projects (cards, ATCs, tags, postcards, etc.) that have wings (birds, butterflies, dragonflies, etc.).


Of course, this is an 'interactive' challenge that involves prizes, so be sure to read the details on the poster below and check out the STAMPlorations main blog.  You for sure want to play along!


Inspiration for my cards today came from STAMPlorations April Theme and Sketch Challenge


My Vignette Trendy Feathers form the patterned background. Afterwards, I embossed the smallest of the Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Nesting Dies to create the 'frame' element (hard to see in the photos, but definitely visible in real life).  A butterfly from Flutter Zen 1 Layering Die, inked with a combination of Distress Ink and Distress Oxide Ink Wilted Violet (the oxides are cool and yes, the colours do vary from their DI cousins...) joined the scene.... 


Made a second....


Please head over to the STAMPlorations site to see awesome inspiration from the rest of the team. 

Things with Wings....that's all you need!  
See you in the gallery!

Great idea to combine feathers and butterflies for a "wings and things" event. The feathered background is so delicate it make the perfect background for your lacy butterfly. TFS.
