This week, Hooked on Craft Challenges wants you to take on the challenge of Things with Wings ! This challenge will run from August 22 until September 3. This challenge is so open, that it shouldn't be hard for you to complete. You could incorporate fairies, butterflies, dragonflies, even angels! The winged element may be found anywhere on your card - the stamped image, an embellishment, and even your paper! You know the lovely Karen will have the perfect prize for the winner!
For my card, I chose to not only use Butterfly Bear With Flower, but I decided to put his little wings to good use by having him float in the air! Because I created an "A" frame card, Mr. Bear can swing in and out with a touch.
His sweet little flower has dimension as well. I chose to cover the flower petals and center with Flower Soft. I used a bright yellow for the outer areas, a pale yellow for the inner areas, and green for the flower center. I love how it gives the flower a velvety look!
I accented the card by using an assortment of gorgeous flowers from Hooked On Craft. I began by first placing the green Gardenia and building outward.
Next, I added Star Flowers which were white. The thing I so love about the white flowers is that I can make the any color I need! In this case, I needed yellow. So, I colored each one using two different yellow Copic markers. Easy peasy, right? You bet!
I absolutely love Calla Lilies - real and paper! Karen has WONDERFUL Calla Lilies. For this card, I chose the lemon ones.
Next, I accented the flower cluster with green Mulberry Leaves (medium and small) as well has a heart trinket pin. The finishing touches were swirl die cuts and banner by Magnolia, Prima flowers, brads, and a mulberry butterfly with pale green rhinestones.
I hope you will create a wonderful card for Hooked on Craft Challenges. You have until September 3! I cannot wait to see what you create!
