Simon Says: Things With Wings on the Monday Challenge

Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge

This week we are challenging you to create

Things With Wings

Spring is always a lovely time to sit in the garden listening to the birds singing and watch the butterflies and the bees fluttering around, We will be looking forward to seeing what you choose to use on your projects!

It is Linda's last week with us in the Designer Spotlight and she is going out with a stunning  butterfly frame, you have to pop by her blog to see it!! AMAZEBALLS!! :-)
As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store

I just got back from a trip to the UK and found my latest order waiting for me ❤️
 I couldn't resist using this super cute ostrich from the new Tim Holtz Hipster Stamp Set. Birds always have wings, so I thought it was perfect for the challenge!! ;-) 

Don't you just love the expression on her face, there's boo messing with her is there ;-) She looks just like my grandma in her hat and dark glasses, she was a stern woman too haha ;-) 

I coloured her with Hickory Smoke, Squeezed Lemonade, Spiced marmalade, Festive Berries and Spun Sugar Distress Inks. 

For the background I used Tumbled Glass, Mowed Lawn and Faded Jeans inks, I then used a Tasty Textures stamp to add interest along one side before splattering with Black, White and Green inks. When it was dry I used White Embossing Paste and a Dot Fade Stencil to create more interest. 

I hope you will explore your 'artsy/mixed media' side to join in. This challenge is all about trying new techniques with inks and stuff and generally having a good time! If you've never done it before, GO FOR IT, it's so much fun!!! ;-) 

So now it's YOUR turn to get creating!

You little rebel, Lols! Making something without wings showing for the wings challenge! Ha, ha! But of course this is bird-o-rific. I love how you gave this hipster such a classy setting and that flower adds the perfect touch. I don't know how anyone could see this delightful card and NOT smile!
