Wings and Things


Over at A Vintage Journey they have a theme of wings and things.


Over on Amandas blog she'd made an ATB but cut some heart shapes out the sides to make a light box which you can see here. I, with permission, pinched her idea and using the butterfly movers and shapers die cut the shapes out of opposites sides of the ATB.


I covered the cut out shapes with T!m's tissue wrap, and stamped some images in stazon.


Also added stamping to the other two sides.


I used one of the die cut shapes on the lid and added a mini safety pin for the body. I stamped the bee from the TH set onto the same gelli print page and cut it out as over at Fashionable Stamping, they have a theme of birds and bees.

Lovely, pretty colours on your ATB Sam and like the butterfly 'windows'! The bumblebee on top is smashing (I have a real soft spot for bumblebees, lol).
