Here is my inspiration for the new challenge at

The theme this time is
Things with wings

My card this time has been made using Clarity stamps and a lot of inspiration from Maria Moorhouse. The butterfly, from the Gerbera stamp set, has been stamped and embossed with clear powder onto black card. Then is has been painted using the Viva decor Inka Gold copper, old gold and silver wax pastes.

The background has also been made using the pastes and cling film. such a cool way of using them and a great effect.
