Black and Cream with Wings!

City Crafter's #78 is a Boo-tiful Color Challenge asking for Black and Cream and Simon Says Stamp and Show is looking for Things with Wings.  The wings, dress form and part of the tag background were created using Victorian Lace from Stampin Up, all other stamps are Tim's Holtz Papillon set.

The dress form was cut from black chipboard and highlighted.  I cut another form from cream colored paper, clear embossed and then covered with Black, removed excess ink and then ironed off the embossing powder.  The Angel Wings from Sizzix were cut from black shrink plastic and stamped with craft ink and then heat shrunk.  BTW, embossing powder does not work, but craft ink does!  Think you know how I figured that one out!  At first the wings were going to go the the arm sides, but I really liked the look of them like shoulder pads!   The background tag was first stamped with SU Victorian Lace, using Antique Linen.  Next I stamped with Pumice Stone using the larger background stamp from the Papillon set and then some butterflies with Scattered straw.  Added some of the tissue tape, which I always forget about! 

I can't believe it is Thursday and I can't help but wonder what I did all week!  Hope you all are having a creative and fun week!  Thank you so much for stopping by today!

Inks:  Distress Antique Linen, Pumice Stone, Scattered Straw, Black Soot, Craft White, VersaMark

Your Things with Wings piece is truly lovely. I love the black and cream together. Beautiful Papillion background. The dressform is stunning. Love the technique you used and the black matting around the portion of your background around the winged dressform really sets it off. Thanks for sharing your art with us at Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge. <3 Candy
