Autumnal Distressed Wings ...

Hello my lovely friends and visitors, I hope your week is going well.  Not a bird for a change, an unused stamp from a previous issue of Crafters Companion Inspiration Issue 9 magazine.  So I played with the Bright & Beautiful and Beautifully Grunge AquaTints set to create this card and here it is …

An A6 card
A final look
Created for me and especially for these Challenges
Die Cut Diva’s Challenge Autumn colours 
Inky Chicks Challenge Fairies &/ Wings 
 Mod Squad Challenge Fall colours
Sparkles Monthly Challenge #83 Lots of Layers
The Corrosive Challenge #8 Anything Goes
The Ribbon Girl Challenge September Card Challenge Anything Goes

I used old papers and ribbon, although I managed to hide that and the Kraft background with the stamped and pink layers on this card.  I stamped the dragonflies with my Versafine ink pad and then coloured them.  I deliberately left it overnight to dry before adding the lime green around them.  I adore the distressed look I achieved with the pink layer, the stamped layer and by adding more paint and ink layers to the stamped panel.  I also got to use one snippet die cutting the sentiment.

My joy right now is that I don’t know what I am going to create next!  It could be distressed, shabby or CAS and I love the liberation that I feel able to create just for me and in whatever style that I am in the mood to create.  It is very freeing for me and I am loving the ride and the journey right now and whatever the destination is at the end I know I enjoyed it and loved it lol!

Thank you so much for taking the time to visit and comment.  I really do appreciate it and I hope you get some time to do what you love to do soon  ttfn Karen x
