AWA~ Things With Wings ATCs

It's time for a fun new challenge at ATCs With Attitude. The theme this fortnight is Things With Wings which is a theme I love. That's why this challenge I decided to make two ATCs...I just couldn't resist either of these images.


The first ATC uses this super sweet dragonfly from Robyn's Fetish called It's a Dragonfly Day. I coloured the flowers and dragonfly with Prismacolor pencils. The background was coloured with Tumbled Glass and Broken China Distress inks using a foam applicator. The bottom edge was inked again with Vintage Photo over the blue which gave it a greenish tinge. White acrylic paint was pounced over the TCW Mini Punchinella stencil using a scruffy brush. The shadows next to them were coloured lightly with Prisma pencils. Three small pieces of washi tape were added to the two long sides. Doodling around the edges was done with a black Micron pen, as was the word "fly". Tiny half pearls were added to the wings and antennae of the dragonfly and a small button threaded with narrow satin ribbon was adhered to the bottom right corner.


The second ATC used this adorable bee image, Honeybee,  from QKR Stampede. Ben, the bee, was also coloured with Prismacolor pencils. He was given tiny black half pearls for his antennae and Glossy Accents for his eyes.  The background was done the same way as the card above with the two Distress inks. Washi tape was adhered around the edges to make a whimsical frame. The flower was made from two silk flowers folded together with the petals offset. A length of green grosgrain ribbon was cut in a double V and adhered to the folded flower. A length of green baker's twine was tied around the ribbon to gather it into a flower base and stem shape.

Thanks for dropping by today. I really do appreciate your visits and comments. Be sure to stop by the ATCs With Attitude blog to see the wonderful inspiration provided by the rest of the DT. I hope you join us for this challenge...I'm sure you have a zillion images for Things With Wings that you could use and I'd love to see your creations.

I am entering these atcs in the following challenges:

You have achieved a very magical scene with your coloring in the dragonfly card and in the second card Mr. Bee sure looks like he's in love with the beautiful red flower. The red sneakers matching the red flower was a good color choice.

These are so cute! I really like the images on the first one. The soft blues and green make such a pretty backgrounds. Those pieces of washi tape may be small but they add such fun. The second ACT is designed perfectly. Adding the flower on the corner is genius. Your wonderfully creative imagination really works for you on these projects. Hugs!
