Things with Wings

Still getting lots of inspiration from the Stars and Stamps blog!  The Midweek Throwdown Challenge this week is for cards featuring Things with Wings.  This stamp is one I've had for many years - I doubt it's even made anymore - and I love using it for cards with a more masculine flair.  The background was made with alcohol inks on a scrap piece of glossy cardstock, and the dark brown cardstock used for the mat was also taken from the scrap pile.

In knitting news, I'm making pretty good progress on the second toddler-sized sock.  I really want to step up production on those socks because I have a lot more pairs of socks to make and I want to start planning out my vacation knitting projects.  I'm sure my knitting friends can relate when I say I always plan what knitting to take before I think about which clothes to pack!  I'm even thinking I might actually might bring along a few stamping supplies on this trip...

Love the card. Canadian geese? Don't you just love planning which projects to bring with you while on vacation! I do!

That background is really cool, and I like the geese stamp! Good for you bringing crafty vacation projects - I do the same, though I don't knit! :)

The goose stamp is wonderful and brings back memories of growing up on the Pacific flyway, when fall became a wonderful event of migrating ducks and geese. The background is also fabulous.

Have fun on your trip! I always take some stamps and Copics to the coast because you never know, in the Pacific Northwest, when you're going to have rain, rain, and more rain. :)

Amy, I love your alcohol paper. Those colors make for a perfect background for this image. I love to make my own papers with the alcohol inks. Enjoy your vacation whenever you go.

Nice use of alcohol inks. And isn't it great when pieces from the scrap pile make it into a beautiful card?

Great background on the birds. This would make a good card to send to a man. I have to really think when I make a card for a male. I think I lean so much toward flowers that it is a challenge to do other things. Thanks for the inspiration.
