Vintage Elusions challenge-Wings

Hi Folks, well I'm back from my travels again very temporarily, and I'd just like to show you what I made for the challenge this week over on the Vintage Elusions Challenge Blog The theme this week is 'Wings/Anything Goes, so if you don't fancy making anything with a wings related theme, you can make whatever you like! You can make a card, tag, altered item, a mixed media project, whatever you like to make, can be entered into the challenge. Please pop along to the blog to see what my Design Team mates have made this week to inspire you. My own project is a little late going on to the blog, as I have only just arrived back home, and I couldn't upload it to the blog, but it's going on there shortly.

I have made a card this week, using an image from Delicious Doodles. It is a floral frame, which I have coloured with Polychromos pencils. I have used some fabulous backing papers from Prima, which I have layered after distressing the edges and colouring them with Tea Dye Distress Ink. I have also stamped a lovely Hummingbird image from Designs by Ryn, also coloured with Polychromos. The sentiment is one from Stamp Camp, which I bought on my recent visit to Happy Stampers.

I simply used a piece of the left over backing paper to stamp the sentiment. It's a lovely pale green with script stamped randomly all over. The main backing paper is taken from the new 'Firefly' collection. Those papers are gorgeous, and I can see myself using every single one of them.

As usual there are some great prizes on offer on the challenge blog:
Teri is offering the Winner 4 digi images of their choice
Susan is offering the Winner 5 Digi images of their choice
Keilly is offering a £10 voucher to spend in the shop

Thanks for stopping by, xx

Absolutely gorgeous. Such nice colours used for the flowers and bird that work well with the toning backgrounds.

Great card Judith! I like the subtle background with the darkened edges and your colouring job on Flying Hummingbird 2 :) Aren't hummingbirds great?! You can pretty much colour them anything you like and there is a bird somewhere in the world naturally looks like that!

That's some colouring of the humming bird - looks magnificent with those pink flowers. I can't get over how the colours are picked out of the paper with your colouring & how subtly so. Lovely piece of colour designing especially using those white highlights.
Take care of yourself.

This is beautiful Judith. Love both those images you've coloured so beautifully and it's no good, I've managed to resist that script paper up to now but I think I have to have it! It's all your fault, lol!
