Simon Says.....................Thing with Wings !!!




Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Challenge !! Thank you for joining us as Anything Goes 
 Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too.
This week the challenge is .............

THINGS WITH WINGS

Fairies, Butterflies, Birds, Aeroplanes etc .............!!

We are showcasing  Studio Calico this week. You don't have to use them to join in but we would love to see them if you have any :-)

As always Heidi will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store!



This took me on 'Flight of Fancy' - I had an idea in my head and couldn't let go!!! I had the idea of a bird house - it took me ages to work out the style and measurements.  It ended up quite simply - I shall now make a template in case I want to try it again.
I couldn't have managed without my trusty Martha Stewart Scoring Board, Tonic Studio Guillotine a CThru T Square Ruler and last but not least a Prisma Set with pencils and rubbers etc. which I now need replacing!!!


The papers used are Studio Calico Autumn Press and Simon Says White Woodgrain card.
I cut the holes with Spellbinders Circles,  Die-namics are both the Picket Fence and the Grass.
The Memorty Box Tessatina border is used as a trellis embellished with Simon's Exclusive Harrington Vine, their Bella Bloom and Memory Box Fancy Blossoms. I've used Small Hero Arts Medium Pearls and Small pearls and also edded them for the Memory Box Pippi Butterfly and Martha Stewart Royal ButterflyI used Vellum coloured with Colorbox Inks on the butterflies.  Wplus9 Hearts & clouds are decorated the top of the Bird House.


                                                    


The inside - the sentiments are cut with Nestabilities Romantc Rectangles on Penny Black's Reach for the Stars part of Simon Says Clear Stamps Like your Style - should I put some butterflies on the inside???
Challenges

I have done the inside and back - now I've realised I will now have to design an either envelope or box.

Delightful with your inside decoration - it makes you feel as if you've just stepped inside. The colours are super with that rather special flower vine growing up the side.
