Mixed Media Card Challenge - Wings

Post number 2 of 3 today.  Click here for my Craft Stamper Take It Make It post, and here for my CASEplorations post.


So, welcome to a new challenge at The Mixed Media Card Challenge.  This month, it's Wings with an option of Foil.  Our graphic shows butterflies, but you could use birds, dragonflies, planes, fairies - anything with wings.


I've been on a die-buying frenzy, and this bird on a branch die was top of my list.  I cut it from watercolour paper, and coloured it with Distress Inks.  On a separate piece of watercolour card I sloshed some Warm Honey, then once that had dried, stamped the sentiment (STAMPlorations Noteworthy), then added a little nest with strands of hessian, a piece of lace and some gold thread.  I dotted some Liquid Pearls eggs in the nest, and some Liquid Pearls gumnuts on the leaf spray.

What will your interpretation of wings be?
