DT: Fab’n’funky : Winged Things

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!


Happy crafting!

  1. 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

  2. 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.

    Susan xx
