FCCB #276 - Things With Wings!

 Happy Monday and welcome to another Monday challenge!

Challenge #276- Things with wings-create a card or project with wings

This Weeks Sponsor

Aurora Wings

The winner will recieve $10 gift certificates!

Create a project inspired by Mother's Day

To qualify for the prize, be sure to use at least 1 Cricut cut on your project and if it's not obvious, let us know what cartridge you used. If you use a Cricut Explore machine, at least one cut must be from the Cricut catalog of images.

If it isn't a card, you will get two entries into the drawing!

Here is my project:

I just loved this Whimsical Raspberry Sprite digi stamp from Aurora's Wings, and I thought she'd look so sweet inside a pretty wreath of flowers from the Dimensional Scenes Pretty Posies Cricut cartridge! I used a card base from the Cricut Sentimentals cartridge, which has a lovely scrolled edge. 

I glued each layer of this pretty wreath directly on top of each other, and there's still a lot of dimension, but you could easily add more by adding some foam dots. 

I coloured this sweet sprite by using Prismacolor and Hobby Color Markers (alcohol based) after printing her out on a thin white cardstock. I put the cardstock through my printer just as I would a piece of plain paper, only changing my ink settings to Fast Draft so there was a bit less ink on the paper. I added some Wink of Stella to the flower, Glossy Accents to the eyes and flower center, and Stickles to the rest of her. She's just so cute!

I pulled a diecut butterfly from my stash and ran it through an embossing folder before adding some Distress Inks to it. A foam dot gives it a bit more dimension and some Wink Of Stella adds some shine!
