Watercolor Wings for PCCCSC #149

It is Wednesday already and apparently the big news here is a big Rugby League game in town tonight - State of Origin. It is between Queensland and New South Wales and the teams are decided by where the players originally hail from. It is a big North vs South kind of competition and I think its the best of three… NSW wear blue and the Queenslanders Maroon…..I don't mind the colours although I won't be watching the game tonight lol :-)

And we have a new sketch for you today at The Paper Craft Crew! The Team have created a great variety of cards to inspire you this week so I hope you can take a moment to check them out. Here is the sketch:

Here is my card - using a new stamp set :-)

Actually, this card uses three stamp sets :-) Watercolor Wings  (and yes, the stamp has an American "Origin"  so is spelt accordingly lol!) It is a 3 step stamp set and has a delicate water coloured look to it. The roses and leaves and greeting are both from different butterfly related sets too! I am loving this colour combo and will definitely use it again :-) For the butterfly colours I used Pool Party and Tip Top Taupe - to get two tones of the Pool Party, I stamped off onto scrap paper before stamping the solid image. And if you look closely you may see the little coils of the new Silver Metallic Thread peeking out from under the Blossom :-)

Card stock: Whisper White, Pool Party, Silver Glimmer
Designer Series Paper: Cherry On Top
Inks: Pool Party, Tip Top Taupe, Watermelon Wonder
Stamps: Watercolor Wings, Butterfly Basics, Floral Wings (Hostess),
Accessories: Big Shot, Bold Butterfly Framelits, Banner Framelits, Corner Rounder Punch, Silver Twine, Silver Metallic Thread, Blossom Accents

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you can take a moment and head over to The Paper Craft Crew and see all the creations the Team have made to inspire you and I look forward to seeing what you create with this sketch this week.

Happy stamping until next time,



  1. Gorgeous colours in the card! The butterfly layers are amazing & quite stunning the silver with the flower on top! -Katerina
