Things with Wings at Sweet Stampin' Challenges

 Good morning, it's time for a new challenge over at Sweet Stampin'- the theme for this fortnight is Things with Wings- so a nice easy challenge with lots of scope- all you need to do to join in is follow the theme and make sure there is some stamping included- digital stamps are allowed, as long as they're not pre-coloured.

I was lucky enough to win a prize from We Love Stamping Challenge a few weeks ago- and what a fabulous prize it was- a set of stamps called Follow Your Own Path from Aall & Create, this seemed a perfect time to have a play with them. 

I smooshed some distress inks onto a piece of white stamping card then let loose with the stamps- plus a couple of background stamp I've had for years and never used. The large woodpecker is water coloured and  I've paper-pieced the 'this way up' arrows. I'm  happy with the way this card turned out, hope you like it too.

Thanks for visiting today, enjoy the rest of the weekend
