I’m here with a sure-to-be popular CASology cue this week:
The first thought that popped into my head was the band Paul McCartney and Wings. Does anyone remember “Silly Love Songs” and “Band on the Run” from the 1970’s? I was only a young kid when these songs came out, but they have transcended the ages…
I digress, as this was not an angle from which I could derive a card, however, it did lead to thoughts of birds with impressive wing spans, doves, churches, stained glass windows, and to cut a long story short, here is the result:
This dove die has such intricate wings, so I was keen to make them the feature.
I die-cut the dove in a variety of coloured cardstock, and retained the one cut from brushed silver cardstock to be my main image. I then removed the intricate internal patterned silver wing pieces , and inlaid the coloured pieces in their place. This was fiddly, but worth the effort. I need to get some tweezers! I used some Micropor tape to hold all the bits in position, before raising the dove from the base card with some foam dots. The sentiment was heat embossed in silver, and three coloured rhinestones in ascending size order, were added to help balance the image.
And that is it!
Take a look at the rest of the Design Team’s gorgeous winged creations:
Hazel Hodgkins – that’s me!
