Buckwell's Crafty Challenge - June 2015 - Things with wings

Today is 1 June and therefore time for another challenge over at the "Buckwells Crafty Challenge".  The challenge topic is "things with wings".  Some suggestions are fairies, angels, butterflies, birds, planes etc.

Our sponsor this month is Sweet Pea Stamps:
Over at Sweet Pea Stamps they have a wonderful array of digital stamps and rubber stamps.
 I decided to make a twisted easel.  They are something different to make but I find a nightmare to photograph!!

For my card I have used the Sweet Pea Stamps digital image by Lemon Shortbread called "Bone Fairy".  It is also available as a rubber stamp.  Yes you can make it into a dark/Gothic style card but using different colours just shows you can make it into a very feminine card.  I have coloured the image in with my Promarkers and coloured the sky with two shades of blue, pink and yellow and pearlescent chalks.
The backing papers I have used are from my Creative Crafting World Perfect Papercrafting Companions CD and a freebie digital paper from Hunkydory.

I have finished the card off with die-cut sentiments, various die-cuts (swirls, butterflies (coloured with the same pearlescent chalks), birds and bird cage), raffia ribbon, some netting and some flowers made for me by a crafty friend in Canada.
