Crafty Cardmakers Challenge #212 - Things with Wings

Hello sweet visitors and welcome to my blog.  So happy you decided to stop by.

It is time for a new Challenge at Crafty Cardmakers.  Glenda is our host for this Challenge and the Theme is Things with Wings.

I decided I was going to create a couple of ATCs but, what to use as my Winged Things??  Well, my fave Things with Wings are butterflies so .. why not use those??
Why not indeed!!

I used pasteboard as my base.  Pasteboard is similar to chipboard but it has a layer of white paper front and back and is a bit cheaper to buy. 
For a bit of texture, I scrunched up a piece of tissue paper and adhered it with Matte Medium.

To add the colour, I sprinkled Lindy's Stamp Gang Magicals and then sprayed with water.  The colour used here is Danny Zuko's Denim.

The butterfly die used is the Vivienne Butterfly from Memory Box .. 
.. and the Magicals colour on this ATC is Tears on my Pillow Tangerine.
For a touch of extra interest I added some torn washi tape at one side ..

.. as well as the Threads and Borders die and a sprinkling of black prills.
The words were computer generated, then trimmed to size and edged with a Sharpie pen.  The doodling around the edges of both ATCs was also done with the Sharpie.

To check out all  the details of the Challenge and for some wonderful inspiration from the rest of the Team, pop on over to the Crafty Cardmakers blog.  I'm sure you will feel inspired to join in and can't wait to see what you create.

Thank you all so much for stopping by my blog today and a special thank you for the wonderful comments that were left on my last post.  I do appreciate them so much.

Have a wonderful day!
Take care and God Bless.
