Things with Wings at Allsorts Challenge

Hello and thanks so much for visiting! It's time already for a new challenge at Allsorts, this week our theme, chosen by Brenda, is "Things with Wings". This is always such a fun theme as there are so many stamps I could choose from, but I went with a floral/butterfly stamp by PSX. It's a really old stamps, but newer to me. I bought it last year but I think this is actually my first time using it. 

The stamp almost fills all of the card front, so I made a simple card to keep the focus on image. I heat embossed using black embossing powder and then colored using distress inks. The edges were distressed and to finish off the card I used a clear wink of stella glitter brush on the image. 
The colors were inspired by a fall color pallet but I'm affraid the blue is a little bit too summery. Still loving this color combo though! 


This week we have two wonderful prizes:

      

 Come join us for a chance to win!


Hope you all have a fabulous weekend! It's summery hot over here - in the low 90's (that's over 30 in Celsius). Definitely looking forward to some cooler weather!

So beautiful Elli! Large images can be so nice to work with because they you don't have to come up with a layout and all the other complexities of card making, and just let the image shine!
