Hello, Kathi here to host the blog challenge this month.  Welcome to this months challenge, "Things with Wings!".  You will see a variety of elements in my project today with wings. Feel free to create a pocket letter or any other type of project, just have fun with it and include something with wings!

For my pocket letter, I have added a lot of texture and elements for interest. Several of them include "Things with Wings", can you find them?

This chipboard was inked with 2016 chalking ink - Aqua. Circles were punched out of the paper line Chiffon Collection. After adhering the pattern paper to the circle area's then adhering the circles together. I then punched out a Vellum quote to fit the smaller of the two circles, Chalking the edges all the way around. Then mounted the quote to the smaller circle.

The 2nd pocket page I used yellow distress paint, let that dry then added black stripes to the backs of the bee's then but on two coats of clear Ultra Think Embossing Powder to the honeycomb & the bee's. I then punched out a flower using the chiffon paper collection.

The lace corner chipboard was painted a light sage paint then covered with Light Moss and an older Quick Quotes quote. Before adhering it to the center of the lace corners all the edges were inked using Light Moss Chalking Ink.

One more "Things with Wings!

On the Fifth card chiffon paper was added to the cat using quick dry adhesive. Taking an exacto knife, I cut off the the extras.  

The fairies were painted with distress paint & their wings have gold UTEE - Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel. After the paint was dry I added glossy accents to the bodies of the fairies.

I punched out leaves/vines using the paper line then covered with Chalking Ink Light Moss. The vines were layered first then placing the fairies over most of the vines with on vine layered on top of the smallest fairy.  Finished with a small flower with a white pearl in the center.

On the final pocket card a window chipboard was painted with gesso, then inked around the entire window with Lemon Sorbet. The dragonfly chipboard was finished with distress glitter. A single flower was placed in the upper left with 5 others flowers in the lower right finishing all the flowers with white plat back pearls.
