Wingy Things

 Morning all.  I hope you are ready for a new girly challenge over at Cardz4galz.  We want to see 'things with wings' this time around.  I had a fabulous idea for a stenciled butterfly for this challenge.  I have several stencils and I'd dug out my texture paste and some shimmery embossing powders to go on the top.  I carefully spread the paste. I covered it with embossing powder.  I heated it up (it gives the paste a lovely puffy texture - try it).  Then I showed it to my other half.  He confirmed that it wasn't 'up to my usual standard' - bless his diplomatic cotton socks - so it's languishing in the bin.  I was fed up by that time so I just coloured some birds from an old MFT set and stuck them to a card base I had already put together in my 'needs finishing' stash.

Considering I just threw the birds at the card I'm quite pleased with the result.  I've put the butterfly stencils back in the folder.  It will be a while before they see the light of day again.

I obviously need inspiring so I'm hoping you will join the fun.

Thanks for reading.
