Mixed Media Card Challenge ~ Wings

Hi Friends! Its time for a new challenge at The Mixed Media Card Challenge!! This month the theme is wings! Show your mixed media cards that feature things with wings: butterflies, birds, dragonflies, fairies, planes, angels, etc. "Foil" is an optional element.
 
 
 



For my card I used paste in a new stencil from Tim Holtz called Treads. I used it this one time, its my all time favorite stencil and can you believe its disappeared! I have searched everywhere twice! I will have to buy another one if i cant find. Imagine loosing something in a scraproom lol!!
After the  paste was dry I water colored the background and splatted with black ink.
 
I hope you can play along this month!! Hugs, Char

I have lost so many things in my craft room! sometimes I find it in the trash or stuck to some papers - hopefully you find your stencil! Wonderful colors and textures on this Char!

You and mixed media work well together Char!! This is beautiful, love the texture and that pretty dotty butterfly. Did you see if the stencil is stuck to the back of something? I've had that happen with the silliest stuff before!

Losing something in a scrap room? Been there, done that. Hope you've since found it. You will in five years at the latest. This is so cheerful. Love that texture.

omgosh..... I lose things ALL the time in my scraproom.... haha! I honestly just recently lost a Tim stencil, too..... but I did manage to find it, although waaaaay after I needed it for something. :)
LOVE your card! I didn't think I needed that tread stencil, but I'm seriously re-thinking that now!

What beautiful wings you've created! I love it - I'm not the only one who loses things in the craft room. There's actually been several times that I've had to rebuy an item!
