It’s time for a new challenge at Loves Rubberstamps Challenge Blog and this week it’s….

‘Things with Wings’.

Our sponsor for this challenge is Aurora Wings.


I’m using the very cute ‘Pixie’ from Aurora Wings to create my card today.


The pretty papers I’ve used are from Bildmalarna and the Heart Doily Die is from La La Land Crafts. The spray of flowers has been made using Wild Orchid Craft flowers. I’ve added a sentiment on the side, some pearls and some pretty lace from my stash. The main card has been edge using the Cherish ‘Around the Page’ Punch from Martha Stewart.

I have stamped the image onto X-Press It Blending Card, coloured with my Copic Markers, cut and layered onto a Large Classic & Scallop Oval Nestabilities from Spellbinders.

Here’s a closer look at the image.


The colours I’ve used are: Skin – E11, E00, E000, R20; Hair & Dress - RV95, RV93, RV91; Wings - BG99, BG96, BG93, BG91; Flowers - Y26, Y23, Y21.

I’ve added some Dazzling Details over the wings for some sparkle.
