Divas By Design Wings & Things

Its time for Team B over at Divas By Design to showcase this weeks challenge & this week its Wings & Things. This can be paper or embellishments, or images showing wings.
This week we are sponsored by Delicious Doodles
I started out choosing an orange piece of card, its so easy to go for white all the time isn't it? The BPs are both from stash. I then coloured a piece of gauze using Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink & placed onto card.
The feather came from stash, but I was not happy with the colour, so coloured with a Promarker & placed it underneath a birdcage which was from a  template over at UKScrappers, which was coloured using Spiced Marmalade again. I added some purple twine across the card which looks like the parrot is sitting on it.
A Magnolia die was used for the dragonfly, which is again coloured with both Promarker & Distress Ink. The image is Magnolia & coloured with Promarkers. I used a MS punch to create the vine down the side.
I added flowers from stash to the bottom right of card.SU die was used for the lower left, distressed again with Spiced Marmalade & dew drops added. The sentiment is an old QVC one & lastly a leaf charm added to complete the card.
Entered into the following challenges

Cindy Groh said...

You are like super trendy with this card. The feather in back was something in Paper Craft magazine recently. The birdcage is perfect for this card. It's not often I see a birdcage that adds to the theme or design of the card and then there's the gauze. Love the reuse or upcycling factor with that material. Great job. Thanks for joining us at Robyn's Fetish this week.
