Winged Creatures At C2CU

December’s main theme at Crafts-Too-Challenge You is The Natural World. There are two parts to the monthly challenge and here we are starting twist 2 which is – Any Winged creature. This is sure to be a favourite with everyone

I am still going with the natural tones for my colour palette as it has been a refreshing change from all those reds and greens of Christmas. Wahoo not long now for the little fat man to come a knocking. Can’t wait to see what Santa will be bringing me!!!

Used the flourish die from Crafts Too. Firstly I placed onto the tag and inked over to leave a subtle background impression. The left over die had pieces snipped off which I added to the tag.

The rest of the design team have worked really hard to bring you some amazing inspiration so pop here to have a peek.

    Hi Shirley, I am enjoying the break from the red and green…the neutral tones look so relaxing. Love the texture and how the material looks like the bird is sitting in a nest. And Ann, you crack me up lol.
