Sunday Stamper - Week 105 - Wings Of A Dove

...Morning Stampers and many thanks for all the fabby entries to last weeks challenge, it was great to see some new peeps joining in too :O)) This week the new theme is... WINGS. It can be any kind of wing...birds, butterflies, bees, bugs, angels... To join in with the challenge is easy; simply make a piece of art, blog it, leave a comment here with a link to the place you are showing your art, I can then come and have a nosey at your lovely creation...simples :O)) The challenge will remain open until 22:00 Saturday 5th June (arghhhh ... June already... we all know what that means...*gulp* only a few days til the big FOUR-OHHHH!!)




For my entry this week I spent a lot of time faffing with Grungepaper and Grungeboard, making lots of little embellies for my altered piece. I used only Studio 490 stamps by the very talented and incredibly arty Mrs Wendy Vecchi. I just love her stamps, they are sooo versatile, I may have mentioned a couple of times before my addiction to them LOL If you haven't used them before, check out her blog *click on her name above* and see the amazing unique art she makes... so inspirationals!





I started off with a wooden house shape to alter - painting it the usual way... Trad Tan.. and then a good thick coat of Rock Candy Cracklepaint. This was set aside to dry and then I got cracking on making the centre bit. I wanted a layered look, so used Nesties and my Bug and cut a few shapes, coloured them with Distress Inks - this week I used Crushed Olive, Forest Moss, Rusty Hinge and Wild Honey... for a change ROFL




I made some backgrounds on the layers using more 490 images - some stamped into water first for a bleached out look too. Once layered, I added some Idea-ology, those ickle teensy brads are so sweet, you know, I have never noticed, they have little marks in them, like a screw would have! Cuteness!




The Grungeboard and Grungepaper was stamped several times with the Butterfly and the Mini Butterfly and then coloured with same DI's. I stamped some leaves and flowers and then added on some little beads that were part of a goody bag that Annette sent to me to play with... thanks hun, those Amber beads... perfect colours for this project!




The large butterflies have two layers and then some more Idea-ology added on - Foliage leaves and Trinket Pins for the body and some extra wingy things...all held together with a brad - and this time I was truly careful and didn't poke the pokey tool thru my hand ROFL Finally, little birdy (which is Maya Road) was added on, I used a Mini 490 stamp for the wing.. so cute! Oh, and as usual, the colouring on the wooden frame is done with Glimmer Mists, spritzed and dried immediately with a heatgun so they dry nicely and don't go muddy. Please feel free to join in and also, if you would like, grab the logo for your sidebar *points upwards*. Thanks for looking - have a FAB week... TTFN

**PS - Soz for the rubbish pics, I couldn't get the proper look of this piece cos it was too dark so I needed a flash... will try to get more pics later on - if the light is right :O))**
