Things with Wings.

This is a project which has been a long time in the making. It has been in the back of my mind for absolutely ages and should have been finished for at least two challenges, but somehow it just didn't happen. I reckon I was subconsciously (yikes - big word!) waiting for this NEW challenge blog to begin.
The new blog is Simon Says Stamp and Show. It encourages art work in the style of Tim Holtz, Wendy Vecchi and other vintage greats.
This week's theme is 'Things with Wings'

So - my wingy thingy was made with a mini canvas (4" x 4") and I painted it with a turquoise acrylic paint. The frame was then rubbed with Brushed Corduroy distress ink and gold acrylic. I then used some Stampin' Up stamps to give some foliage detail. The roof is made from chipboard and Grungepaper coloured with DI's again and Grungepaper flowers and leaves. My bird is also Grungepaper cut with a die in my Cuttlebug and I also put it through an embossing folder before I coloured it with DI and gold acrylic paint. A few blingy bits finished off the flowers. The piece de resistance is the gorgeous nest and eggs in the middle of the frame very kindly given to me by my friend Rosie - thanks Rosie xx.
Please go and see all the wonderful stuff over on Simon Says - it really is worth seeing. Bye for now - Jacqueline xx.
