Fly Away

Hello, everyone! It has been raining here on and off for the last 3 days. Can't get any work done outdoors like the planting of my flowers. But what better way is there to spend rainy days than to rev up your creative juices and do some crafting!

Here's a card I made for this week's Twisted Thursday challenge at The Outlawz. As always, the challenge is "Anything Goes" with an optional twist. This week the twist is "things with wings".

I began by making a 5.5 x 5.5 inch base card in white card stock. Using black card stock, I used a Martha Stewart punch around the page punch to create a layer which I adhered to my base. 

The floral image is a Stitchy Bear digital stamp which I printed out on white card stock and colored with Copic markers.  Next, I die cut this panel using Spellbinders Luscious Labels One and, while still in the die, sponged it with Memento Angel Pink ink. This was then popped on to my base card.

The butterfly was created with dies from Spellbinders Les Papillions Two; bottom butterfly layer in pink using the closed die and the top layer in black using the intricate open die. Then the two butterfly layers were attached in the middle section in order that the wings would be free and the entire butterfly was popped on with dimensionals to the base card.

Hope you will join us for this week's challenge. Thanks for stopping by and have a craft filled day!

Such a lovely card, Olga. The focal element is so gorgeous on the brown lacy backround. I love it. You're the first one I saw using this new Spellbinders Luscious Labels One die, which I'm tempted to buy. Thanks for sharing. Blessings!

What a striking card! Just beautiful. On my computer your first layer looks like very dark brown on ivory/cream cardstock, I wish you could see it - I'm sure you'd be impressed!!
