Things with Wings ......

Happy Wednesday ......

Fancy a Blog Hop?  Well you're in luck.  Today sees the start of the STAMPlorations Things With Wings Blog Hop and Linky Party with the STAMPlorations girls.

And it's a big one!  It all gets underway today and runs through to April 30th.  That's 25 days of Springtime fun, showcasing lots of gorgeous new winged-themed projects from the STAMPlorations girls every Wednesday.  Birds, butterflies, dragonflies they'll all be there ..... on cards, ATC's, Tags you name it.

You can join in the fun too ..... hop along with us and leave comments along the way, or why not even create a spring project with a wings theme and link it up to the party.   You could win one of the fabulous prizes up for grabs.  There's stamps and dies, and gift certificates to be won .... full details and a list of all the prizes can be found over on the STAMPlorations Blog

OK lets get this party started ......

A nice CAS design using one of the latest stamp releases from STAMPlorations ........ Flutter Zen Row, and a brand new CUTplorations word die ........ hello sunshine

I simply stamped the Butterflies across a piece of white cardstock, and then added colour to the background around the butterflies using Zig Clean Color Markers and a waterbrush

I die cut the words from the coloured card, and again from a plain piece of white card.  I inlaid the white die cut into the coloured card and then layered the coloured version on the top giving the look of a hidden message, but with a touch of dimension.

A few splatters of ink onto the background ........

And I stamped the butterflies again on the inside of the card .......

Don't forget ....... there's those prizes up for grabs.  All you have to do to be in with a chance of winning is, hop along through all the blogs and leave a comment, or create a project and link it to the party ...... you have until April 30th to join in so lots of time.

Happy hopping!

Thanks for popping by .... enjoy the rest of your day.

Cheerio until next time
