A thing with wings....and oh yes, a dress and a hat!

I spotted a new challenge site this morning, Simon says stamp and show where the theme is "things with wings", now there is nothing I like more than a "thing with wings" especially if it a bit out of the ordinary and I think this qualifies! I just love this bird doll set from INVOKE ARTS so I decided to have a play and this is what appeared!

The ring at the bottom is the inside of a double sided tape reel, covered with paper, holes poked through and buttons wired in place. I really enjoyed making the button border on yesterdays post so decided to have another play with the idea.......it was a bit harder round this reel and I had to resort to a pair of pliers to pull the wire through!
The words on the heart pins are cut from TALL WORD COLLAGE by STAMPOTIQUE

Torn up book pages to make the nest!

STAMPOTIQUE and INVOKE ARTS stamps are available here in the UK from THE STAMP ATTIC

Hi Sue

I just love how you always take something and give it those extraordinary final touches.

This is a really magnificent and colourful piece of art.

We have a wings theme over on Stampotique this week.:0)

Hey...how come thats Crewe foliage I can see in the background. Are you back again for good?

I love the base of your creation very much, especially the button trim and the range of words.

I´m a big fan of these stamps, too, and you´ve used them in a perfect way - what a beautiful piece!

Nigel said...

Brilliant piece as usual, and for some reason it makes me think of "Birdhouse in your soul" - which is now playing incessantly in my head!
