Cards in Envy - Wings

Welcome to the first Cards in Envy challenge for August. It's also my first challenge rejoining the Cards in Envy design team. The theme is Wings. Simply create a card and include something that has wings.

Having a 6-year old daughter, there is a lot of talk about fairies. She loves to read books about them and dress up like them. So naturally, I had to purchase the darling Lawn Fawn fairy friends stamp set. I created the background using Brusho watercolor powder, then added the My Favorite Things window die cut over it. The dark blue background looked like a night scene, so I thought it would be perfect to hang some little lanterns.



Stamps - Lawn Fawn
Window die cut - My Favorite Things
Watercolor powder - Brusho
Watercolor paper - Canson
Markers - Copic
Ink - Memento and Ranger Archival
Gold embroidery thread
Wink of Stella glitter pen

I hope you have time to play with us over at Cards in Envy. Just remember, cards need to be flat enough to mail, so no thicker than 1/4".

Thanks for visiting my blog today!
