SSSSC - Things with Wings & WOC 3 - One for the Girls

This card covers 2 challenges:

The first Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge which is Things with Wings and ...


It's been a while since I've played with my alcohol inks so I made the background using them. I stamped on to glossy paper and embossed with clear embossing powder before inking over the top then ironed away the embossing.

I used the same technique for the butterfly panel but did this on normal cardstock with distress inks.

Materials used: CoreDinations cardstock, Versamark ink, Ranger alcohol inks, Chapel Road Artstamps background stamp, Ranger distress inks, Paperbag Studios butterfly stamp, Wild Orchid Crafts paper roses.
Also used: vintage lace, various pins, beaded embellishment and clear beading from a Christmas garland.

There's a few hours left to comment on my Growing in Unity posts to be in with a chance to win some Unity stamps or leave a comment on Tuesday or Thursday's posts to win a goody bag or the bag I embellished.
