Things with WINGS at Crafts & Me

Its time for a new challenge over at Crafts & Me and Amy has chose the fab theme of Things with Wings.  For this challenge I have used one of the brand new Jasmine Becket-Griffith stamps called Making a Wish and they are now AVAILABLE whoop!  Some of this range are sold out already so be quick!

Bit late posting this evening, I've got a virus courtesty of my OH who's had it for 2 weeks and lost his voice and everything.  At least he can be grumpy in a quiet way now hehe!  I'm drugged up to the eyeballs, got swollen glands the size of a small elephant and I've gone deaf lol!

Anyhow here's my version of Making a Wish.  I chose Pink & Turquoise as its one of the girls birthdays over at Postpals soon, and she likes pink & turquoise, well actually its triplets so this will be one of three!
Its a post it easel, the instructions for this are in the February 2011 issue of Craft Stamper
Papers are Papermania.  I liked the hummingbird so rather than centre my flowers I've used them as a feauture.  Image is coloured with promarkers and derwent coloursoft pencils and the background is distress inks.  I've added bling blng with sakura stardust as you can see on the 2nd pic and some sticky pearls and metallic teal nailheads. Text stamp says Spirit, I've had it forever off fleabay :)

Hope you stop on by and join in the Wings Challenge at Crafts & Me!

Oh wow how gorgeous is she. Love how you have given her a belly bar! This would be perfect for a teen with that added.

I wish I could sneak up beside you and pinch some of your ability to just see where the light and shade is. Perfection!
