Flight of Fancy As Butterflies Flutter By


Caardvarks is asking us to think winged things in the latest challenge, Flight of Fancy.

I used a foil bird ornament that came in a kit from The Story Of My Life and a beautiful quote from Emily Dickinson: "Hope is the thing with feathers that
perches in the soul and sings the tune without words and never stops at all."
Background paper is by College Press.

Meanwhile DCM's latest challenge also has wings, but this time it's butterflies. "Butterfly, Flutterby" asks us to put butterflies on a card. I used a gatefold card and chalked the front with soft blues. I used Twelve by 12 paper and a tag, and stamped butterflies using an Artifacts stamp onto vellum in silver. I coloured the butterflies with Gelly Roll pens and sprinkled on some fine glitter.
