Flying on the wings of love! by Nicky Cresswell

Hello my blogland lovelies, 
Minxy in the house once more spreading yet more love
This time in the form of a card
I started by making a little motherboard out of tissue paper & old book pages coloured with fire brink distress ink stuck randomly onto a piece of cartridge paper with multi medium.
I then over stamped with the hearts background stamp in black archival and fire brick.
When dry a tore a piece from the motherboard the size i needed, and punched a checkerboard along one side, i also did the same to a piece of red card.
I diecut a heart in red which i coated with glossy accents,  and wings in gold mirror card using the TH die, I embossed the wings with Tims checkerboard folder and dirtied up using a black dabber.
I assembled and finished with the phrase punched out using my dymo label maker.
Don't forget you still have today and tomorrow to get in your 'Love' challenge entries.
Oh Right... i almost forgot.. 
the winner of the last piece i blogged HERE goes to..
Congrats hun, please mail me {link on my blog}with your snail mail and i'll get that in the post for you during the week x 
Untill next time, Stay Inky xx
