Simon Says Stamp and Show - Things With Wings


A brand new challenge started this past week - Simon Says Stamp and Show - and the first challenge is Things With Wings.  Two of my favorite things with wings are butterflies and dragonflies so I've used one of each on this ATC.  All stamps are Wendy Vecchi's Studio 490 and all ink is Distress Ink.  I started with a piece of white cardstock sponging it with mustard seed, faded jeans, and wild honey using a blending tool and foam... splattered some water on it and dried it... sprayed it with a Perfect Pearls gold mix to give it some shimmer.  Stamped the flowers with Archival Ink jet black and added some black around the edges of the atc.  The butterfly was stamped onto grungepaper with jet black, cut out and colored with mustard seed and a bit of wild honey... the white Inkssential pen brought the word "FLY" out a little better.  Be a Designer of Dreams was stamped on a scrap of white cardstock with jet black, cut out, sponged with mustard seed and a bit of wild honey on the edges.  Ideology film strip ribbon attached using the Tiny Attacher.  Butterfly and words glued on with Glossy Accents.  Jute string wrapped around.  Dragonfly charm wired on.
