"Things with Wings" Challenge

After I saw “Things with Wings” in Simon Says Challenge, I thought….hmmm…I have some butterfly punches, I should make a card!… and this is what I came up with. Recently I’m really into Color Combination. The stamp is from Inkadinkado, small butterfly punch is from Fiskars, and the little flower punch is from Marvy Uchida. Since I colored the THANK YOU flower stamp in Blending Blox (has some gradation in the color), I used the same inkpad to ink the white Card stock first, and punched butterflies out. It’s rather hard to tell in the pic. but those butterflies are not in ONE color, so it would match the stamped Thank You Flower image. I put the large pearl on the letter “O”, in “YOU” on the stamped image. Oh, I also cut around some petals (center still attached), using X-Acto knife, to give a bit of dimension. I lifted up those petals (like one in every three petals or so.) It worked better, having similar orange colored layering card stock underneath so the similar color peeks under the petals! I also bent all the wings of butterflies to give a bit of dimension, to match the stamped THANK YOU Flower image. I used stickles to give shiny look in the center of punched flowers in the end.
