Hello! This week it is my turn to host the challenge at Fab’n’Funky and I chose Winged Things! Be it fairies, birds, butterflies or planes I want to see things featuring wings! So please pop over to the blog and join in.
This week Lacy Sunshine are sponsoring the challenge. I used this image called Rory Catching Butterflies which is ever so cute.
I decided to go for a big image and to make a change from the usual white cards so instead printed onto cream laid paper and use a cream card blank as the base.
I cut the image out using a fiskars oval cutter and coloured the image using spectrum noir pencils because I love the way the colour picks up the texture of the paper. I creates a lovely effect. I really think it works well when colouring fabric.
I edged the oval with ink and then chose this striking paper from the stash that was from an old Halloween themed set called Howlstooth and scaringbone. I softened it by adding the seam binding and flower from the stash though.
The sentiment came from an art deco magazine set and I thought it worked well with the image.
So please do come see what everyone else made and make me something with wings!

Fab challenge Catherine, such fun to design for this week. Love your sweet LS girl and lovely card design. The finish on the denim looks fab. Hugs, Wends x
Beautiful card Catherine, lovely image and super colouring.
Lovely card Catherine. I do love how the pencils pick up the tooth in the paper making it look like denim…..a fab affect. Great sentiment to. xx
Great card Catherine – and it’s a small thing, but I love the way you’ve cut the sentiment up and placed it. I always end up with it in the one bit and it looks a bit dull!!
Also, I know it’s a bit backward but loving the inky stuff and all the others that you’ve done up there ^^ . Super work.
