Flutterby Wednesday #123

Flutterby Wednesday - FBW123 Totally Open Challenge for ALL Winged Things
Splitcoast Clean and Simple - CAS85 Fall Colors Red, Vanilla, Kraft, Brown

This week's Flutterby Wednesday challenge is one of my favorites yet! This week, and this week ONLY, it is open to ALL winged things instead of being limited to fairies, butterflies and angels. Break out those ladybugs, bumblebees, birds, dragonflies, lightning bugs, etc. and get inky with us! {grin}

For today's card I used an image from one of my new Ippity sets called Totally Happy. The sentiment is from another Ippity set called Just Wanted to Say. I decided to try to make a Clean and Simple card using this week's challenge for fall colors from Splitcoast. I inked up the fence/bird stamp with Crumb Cake ink (previsouly known as Kraft). Then I used markers to outline the fence and add some red to the bird before stamping the image on my vanilla cardstock.

The picture is cut out with a Labels Eleven Nestie and outlined with a Lipstick Red spica glitter pen. I added some texture in the background with a cuttlebug folder called Floral Screen and popped up the bird & fence on some dimensional tape. {ta-da!} And I couldn't resist adding just a few brown pearls in the corner. {wink}

Thanks for fluttering by and I hope you have an inky day!
