Frilly and Funky - Things With Wings

Hiya Folks, and a big lovely welcome to my newest followers! :)

This week's challenge at Frilly and Funkie, hosted by our very talented Cec, is:


"Use anything with wings as the focal point on your vintage or shabby chic projects this time. Be it of the animal, fantasy or mechanical variety we want your creativity to take flight!"

Now firstly, I have to point out, my original plan was a vision of a glorious masterpiece, which I think from the start was doomed. So, at the last minute I created something else and quite CAS for me. However, they will come in handy as gift tags :)

I finally got round to using the incredibly gorgeous Tim Holtz Wallflower paper stack! The butterflies/moths came from his Emphera Pack and fussy cut from the 12 x 12 stack. Using the large tags die, I cut two lots from from the stack and four plain white card tags. One to shabby up and one to place on the back after it was all finished.

Good old useful Distress Marker in Vintage Photo to the rescue to distress around the edges of the butterflies/moths and of course the word bands to add a little something extra with cream twine.

Again, I'm sorry I have to run - you know what's so I shan't bore you with it... But we should be half way there now - yay!
Huge hugs
Gee xx
