Once upon a time....

............there was a woman who finally got her act together and submitted a challenge card lol. Its been a number of months since last taking part on one of the challenge sites due to real life commitments, but as I had a little time this morning I thought I'd try and get back into the swing of things.

On Theme Thursday the challenge is 'People with wings' and I dedicate this card to my friend Galina :0). Its not often I used winged people in my work, I usually snip the wings off collaged winged images, but this Inka girl with her little wand looked like a little fairy and fitted in perfectly with the background paper I created using watercolour crayons(left over from the magazine article contribution mentioned on the previous post).

Wednesday Stamper is setting the challenge of using Newspaper too this week so maybe this fits in with that aswell?



If I tilt the card at an angle you can see the shimmer.

I am honoured that this card is dedicated to me. Me and wings is a special topic. Fab colours!

Wow, is this ever gorgeous! I love the way you tilted it to show the glimmer. I must try that. Sometimes I have things that look so wonderful in "person" but the glimmer doesn't show up in scans. Nice job.
