Allsorts Challenge - Week 6 - Wings

Good afternoon. Thank you so much to everyone who visited my blog for the Sugar Nellie Blog Hop and left such lovely messages - it really made my day.

At last, I am entering a challenge. I've been crafting aplenty recently, just not for challenges. However, I couldn't resist the challenge at Allsorts Challenge Blog this week which is "Wings".

Here's my entry:-

As you can see, I've treated myself to one Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pad - "Antique Linen" and I think I've gone a bit mad with it, it's made an appearance on just about everything I've made since I got it. I think it's a bit lonely on it's own so I will have to save the pennies to get it some friends (another 23 perhaps!!).

To make this card I've used some white card to make a blank which I have embossed on the front using a score board, I've lightly inked the edges. I then took another piece of white card and ran it through the "Script" Cuttlebug embossing folder, I distressed the edges of this card with a distress tool and liberally inked it with "Antique Linen" distress in. The flower was made using Spellbinders Flower Creations 1 die, again it's been distress inked! I then cut two butterflies with an X-cut punch out of white card, I covered them with Versamark ink and heat embossed them with Heat It Up! "Enchanted Gold" embossing powder. Finally, I added some gems from my stash.

I really enjoyed making this card.

Thank you for stopping by and taking the time to look. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Hi Claire

I love your "winged" card.

The colours are wonderful and those butterflies are so cute.

I struggle with my distressed ink pads - but you have used yours to great effect here. (I must try harder!!!).

Hope you are enjoying Sunday.

Love Jules xx

Evening Claire, tis is so light and delicate. An awful lot of work and simply stunning. The scoring on the base card gives it extra interest and that butterfly is a favourite of mine already - only had it a couple of weeks but used it no end.

Thanks for taking part in my wings theme and playing along with Allsorts, good luck with the draw.
